Do you love reading?

Posted on Sunday 22nd November 2015 by Shauna Bickley

I can certainly answer ‘yes’ to the question in the title.

As we’re getting close to December, memories of childhood Christmas holidays surface often. My parents weren’t well-off so my brother and I didn’t get heaps of presents, and they certainly weren’t expensive ones, but I was happy as long as I had some books. My strongest memories of Christmas morning are of waking early (around 3 am) to find a stocking, pillowcase or something similar with presents. After ripping off any wrapping paper, I’d settle back into bed with one of the new books (there were always books!) and read happily until my brother woke up. The delight of starting a new book is as strong now.

If you love reading, and you’d like to read some great books for the price of a review, read on.

Awesome Indies Books invites you to join our Read to Review program. If you sign up, once a month we will email you details of the Awesome Indies approved books that are up for review. You then have until the end of the month to let us know if you’d like to read any of them. The author will then send you the book in whatever file suits your eReader.

In return for this free read, you agree to:

Post a review on the Awesome Indies Book site, Amazon, and on one other review site (eg your blog, B&N, Kobo, or Goodreads) within two months of receiving of the book.

The review should be a minimum of 100 words and include the following at the end: I received this book free from Awesome Indies Books in return for an honest review.

When completed, email the administrator the links to your review on the three sites. If for some reason you didn’t finish the book or don’t feel you can review it for any other reason, then please let us know why. If after two months you don’t leave a review and we don’t hear from you, we will remove you from the reviewers list.

All the books you’ll be offered have already passed Awesome Indies approval—that means they’re good. Though you may not like a book, we can guarantee they’ll be well-written and edited.

It’s hard for independent author to gain visibility in this crowded marketplace and reviews of books can help.

Thank you and happy reading!
