This post is probably going to sound more like an infomercial than a blog entry. (I promise I’m neither an official spokesman nor a paid actor.) But I wanted to share a resource with our readers that might benefit many of you.
Undoubtedly, some of you already know about this. But for those who don’t, it is an exceptional opportunity – especially for those who love to read.
If you want to grow your library with brand new Christian books, there is an easy and free way to do it. Christian publishers will gladly send you free books, in exchange for your willingness to post an online blog review of each book after you read it.
Signing up to receive free books is easy. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: If you don’t already have one, you will need to start a blog. This is a cinch, and can be done for free through sites like www.wordpress.com, www.blogspot.com, or www.typepad.com. If you enjoy reading good books, and like telling others about them, starting a blog that includes regular book reviews can be both easy and enjoyable.
Step 2: Sign up with Christian publishers for free books through their “Blogger Review” programs. Most major Christian publishers offer these kinds of programs (at least for bloggers living within the United States and Canada). Here are ten, though there are undoubtedly others that I’ve left off of this list:
Step 3: Review the books on your blog and then select more free books. Different publishers may have slightly different criteria for your online review (in terms of length and the places where it is posted). So be sure to check the details of each program that you join.
See how simple that is. Start a blog. Join a blogger review program. Choose new books. Read and review the books. And then choose more books. It’s a fun and free way to grow your personal library.
OK. Infomercial over.
