Buy your weird cousin a subscription to Read Max this holiday
Your normal cousin too!
Did you know that the Substack-brand newsletter platform makes it easy, and even enjoyable, to give "gift subscriptions” to friends, family, colleagues, rivals, etc.?
Perhaps you are spending your pre-solstice season wondering what present to get your friend with impeccable taste, sophisticated interests, urbane intellectual pursuits, etc. What better way to introduce some necessary stupidity and strangeness into such a person’s life than with a subscription to the Read Max newsletter?
Or perhaps you have a close family member who likes science fiction movies and is “too online”: Demonstrate your sympathy with their plight, and your recognition of/respect for their identity category, with a subscription to Read Max.
Perhaps you know someone who would like to own an incredibly sick long-sleeved t-shirt like this one, featuring the famous Read Max “Dad Thriller Flow Chart,” and because this t-shirt is available to paying subscribers of Read Max only, you need to first buy them a subscription to Read Max:
Really, the list of people for whom Read Max is a perfect holiday gift is endless, and given the natural, almost aristocratic generosity of current Read Max subscribers, I feel confident that many of those people will find themselves uncommonly pleased to find a gift subscription to Read Max in their inbox this holiday season.
A Reminder of What Read Max Subscribers Get:
At least two newsletters every week, exploring and explaining internet culture, the tech industry, funny memes, and other artifacts of our weird new future
A weekly roundup of reading/streaming recommendations
Access to subscriber-only, hand-aggregated, artisanally written, fully comprehensive syllabuses/explainers on topics like Web3, the FTX collapse, and the Metaverse
New subscriber benefit: Cool Read Max merchandise like this sick “Dad Thriller” long-sleeved t-shirt, now available to purchase by subscribers only
A sense of cosmic tranquility/well-being
Max Read’s eternal thanks
