Bookplex, NetGalley and Blogging For Books - For Readers

Back in April 2014, I signed up with Bookplex.com, to be paid for my review of free books they have available for download. You must choose a book from the list they provide (which normally isn't too long), download the book to your e-reading device (no paper copies available at this time), read that book and write a review, good or bad, before the deadline date listed. They just want real, honest reviews from people. Some rules though: reviews must be posted on your blog, you have to have an Amazon account, a GoodReads account, and a Barnes & Noble account (all to post reviews on). Who doesn't have those already? *Good news- they just updated their website*

I joined this website in May 2014. I read titles that I am interested in (they have tons to choose from, and they are easy to find by category). Then I post a review of the book on their website. I am allowed to post the review on my blog, GoodReads and through my social media. Plus it looks like some of the books are very newly published or are available before they are available to the public.... how COOL is that! Win, win for all!  I am a huge fan of this company because of the ease of finding books and getting them to my device. It's so simple and that's what people like!

I've been a member since May 2014. Pretty much the same concept of choose a book you want to read, read it, then post your review on their website. It looks like they mail out physical books to you (but they are hard to come by since they only have so many), or you can get an ebook through download on Edelweiss *from their website- Q: Are eBooks available for review? Yes. eBooks are available through the Blogging for Books program. You will need to have an Edelweiss account set up in order to download eBooks. The Blogging for Books program works seamlessly with Edelweiss to deliver your eBooks. Requests are made through the Blogging for Books program.*  The Blogging For books website's FAQ actually has a lot of good info for bloggers, so check that out.
