About

You couldn't pay me to read anything by Jonathan Franzen. Just kidding, if someone wants to pay me $5000 or more to read one of his books and then make fun of it a lot I will.

Here are my Franzen reading rates:
Freedom: $5,000
The Corrections: $10,000
Purity: $25,000
Breakup Stories: $100,000

The rates are negotiable, but not that negotiable. (You are always welcome to pay me more than the base.) Originally the first marker was going to be $1000, but then I was told I was lowballing prices, so here we are.

Show your support to me, a woman, whose project was inspired by that day of days, International Women's Day.

Risks and challenges

My greatest risk is potentially reaching my goal and having to read a book by Jonathan Franzen. I mean, can you imagine??

But I am a woman of my word and I am committed to this Kickstarter Campaign.
