Weekly Devotions from Landmark Baptist Church
You may have noticed that some of the book reviews on this blog have a disclaimer indicating that I received the book for free with an agreement to read it and post a review. If you’re wondering how that works, here it is!
If you’re anything like me and you like to read, you probably like to find good deals on books. Every year I get lots of gift certificates for places like Barnes & Noble or the Apple iBookstore so that I can buy books throughout the year. But recently I discovered there’s an even more affordable way to locate books to read – and when I mean affordable I mean free. If you have a personal blog and are willing to write a 200-300 word review of a book and post it in multiple places you may be eligible to participate in a Blogging for Books program. Below are links to various blogging for books companies that give free books to reviewers. When you sign-up you can request a book free of charge as long as you offer to write a review of it in multiple places (normally your own personal blog, the publishing companies’ homepage, and at least one other location like http://www.barnesandnoble.com, http://www.amazon.com, or even http://www.christianbook.com).
Each of the companies sends you books for free – some before they are officially published – so that you can read them and offer reviews. There are a wide variety of genres available – from theology to fiction to even new Bible translations – so if you read Christian books I’m sure you can find something of interest to you.
If anyone knows of any other companies that do this please feel free to post a comment and share!
