A few years ago, I was reading a friend’s blog that informed me of a way to get free books. Some of you may know this already, but many Christian publishers will give you a free book in exchange for a review of that book on your blog (or other website if you have one), their website and then a book purchasing website (e.g., Amazon, CBD, etc.).
You can subscribe or join as many “publisher reviewer clubs” as you like and receive all the books you can handle. Each publishers has a different set of rules for their free books (e.g., deadline to read the book, number of followers on your blog or website), but generally speaking if you get a book, you read it and review it; and then you can get another book.
Did I mention you choose the books as well? You don’t have to read and review whatever they want to send you. You get to choose the book. About 75% of the time, the books I have received have been great resources I plan on using in the future. So it is a good way to build your library.
Below, I will hyperlink to each Christian publisher I use if you are interested in joining the reviewers-for-free-books-club.
