Beginning in 2022, TMRB became a paying market. Staff reviewers receive $1 (one dollar) for each one-sentence book review, limited to four reviews per reviewer/per year; select staff reviewers receive $15 (fifteen dollars) for a twelve month commitment of one review/per reviewer/per month. Interested in becoming a staff reviewer for TMRB? 

Query us at: yunewsservice(at)gmail(dot)com. In the subject field add: "TMRB / SR"

NOTE: The Minderbinder Review of Books employs several fat-checkers on staff. By submitting a one-sentence book review, all reviewers provide tacit consent for TMRB to copy edit, if necessary, no more than one word from their review before posting. TMRB may also consider it necessary to insert or remove a hyphen, change an en dash to an em dash (or vice versa) and/or change it back again. This policy strives to remain true to the core principles of TMRB and to honor the motto inspired by H.L. Mencken: "One too many words is one toke over the line."
