Regarding donations

Since moving from Ko-fi to PayPal.Me, I haven’t been able to post a thank-you message in response to the donations. So, thank you all so much, always. Whether you’re donating or just someone who visits this site, thank you. Hopefully this donation platform doesn’t get banned, otherwise I’d have to search for another one. I try to avoid Patreon for now since I don’t want people to subscribe to a monthly donation. Because, if you have money to give monthly, I would rather you use it to pay the publishers/buy the books of the series you enjoy. Well, we’ll see how things go, yea?

Also, for those of you who have been donating $0.01 to $0.05, thank you for your support but I would like you to know that PayPal fees are $0.30 + 4.4%. Which means, if you give $0.50, I receive $0.18. That is why your donation of $0.05 always ends up with a balance of $0.00 on the receipt page. I just want to clear up the confusion in case you thought that there’s something wrong with your donation.

One last thing. The late list has consistently been cleared for a while now, we’ve come a long way haven’t we? If you find a digital light novel (official English only please) that is not on this site, let me know using the contact form, and include the link to purchase it. I’ll see what I can do. Cheers everyone!

Edit: For now i have switched to BTC donations, let’s hope it works fine. You can refer to this guide to read about how to purchase BTC.

  1. Jowy, man, I owe you a lot for these LNs. I really appreciate the huge amount of efforts you are giving to this site. I’ll be sure to donate once I got my bonus from work. By the way, Is it safe to promote your site on social media? I mean, is there a fallback or something?

      1. It’s fine to share. Don’t worry about donations, for now my paypal is locked because of viz media so it’s gonna take a while to unlock it.

  2. Hi!
    As far as I know, the missing ebooks are published by Cross Infinite World:
    The Werewolf Count and the Trickster Tailor 1
    Beast † Blood 1

    It’s great that Yen On is digitizing previously print-only books.
    Rokka, The Hero and His Elf Bride Open a Pizza Parlor in January. Log Horizon in February.
    Hope to see them here soon! 🙂

  3. If I bought an ebook from Google Book, but I still download your ebook, is that a Okay? I mean, do I still got sins for stealing official e-book via your site?
    Because I bought Moon+ Reader Pro, they got statistics, record all ebook I have read, and many feature than the simple Google Book app.

  4. Do you make any money off the ads in the links? I use an adblock to get passed them without too much hassle, but I always wondered your stance on it.

    1. I get money for using the links. Do I have to show the ads to get it to count? Or just loading the page will count? Honestly though, I don’t know the specifics either. But my stance has always been to just use adblockers to get past them (it’s on the FAQ page also).

    1. No one can crack Bookwalker DRM yet so Ryuo is still not possible. The ones you see shared online are DIY ebooks created manually by copy-pasting and OCR.

  5. sorry but why would anyone donate 1-5 cents? if you only have that much spare money, you should really be keeping it for yourself.

    1. Maybe they’re just testing to see if the donation goes through, before sending a larger amount? I thought that’d be the case so I wanted to inform them about the paypal fees.

  6. Sorry, I would really love to donate but I don’t have the money to. I really appreciate your work. I don’t know what I’d do without this site as I can’t afford light novels So Thanks a lot and hope you keep up the great work!

    1. Embarrassed as I am, I’m not too knowledgeable about Bitcoin actually. All i know is that i need to get a bitcoin wallet from somewhere and if I ever want to withdraw the bitcoins, I need to use a bitcoin exchange yea? And in order to do that, I would need to deal with KYC which is traceable back to me isn’t it?

      1. Yup, that’s essentially the gist of it. There are some exchanges out there that don’t require KYC and with just basic info, with daily withdrawal limits of course, like Binance. Chances are you aren’t going to be withdrawing 2 BTC per 24 hours.

        This is all assuming you don’t reside in the States, otherwise you’re best bet without KYC would probably be either local trading (i.e localbitcoins.net) or Bisq where you can trade your BTC with payment methods like Zelle.

        Hope this helps!

        1. What about wallets? Is there a specific place I should get mine from? I googled Binance and the first thing that came up was their recent KYC data leak, are you sure they don’t require KYC?

          1. For wallets, I recommend the open-source Electrum Wallet or if you’re really concerned about security and can spend some money, then a hardware crypto wallet like a Trezor or Ledger.

            This is taken straight from their support article regarding withdrawal limits with and without verification: https://www.binance.com/en/support/articles/115000864371

            Again though, that withdrawal limit applies if you don’t reside in the U.S.

            I mentioned Binance because they are the biggest crypto exchange out there, as for the data leak I don’t know too much about that. However, no doubt they would have taken steps since then to up their game on improving their security. If you are concerned about that, there are other exchanges that should have similar daily withdrawal limits without KYC like Binance out there.
