On a quest to find books to review for my various websites, I stumbled upon a book publisher called Thomas Nelson via an article I read on Suite 101. They claim to have been around since 1798 and want to give you free books!
In exchange for reviewing a book on your blog, and copying the review to a site such as Amazon, they will send you a free copy of a recent publication of your choice.
The application process is quite simple. Fill out the form, complete with a link to your blog, and wait for the acceptance email. Then, look at their list of books available to review and make a choice.
After you make your choice, you will receive an email with a link to download the first couple of chapters so that you can start reading. Within a week, a hard copy of the book will arrive on your doorstep.
Do a review of 150-200 words within a reasonable amount of time. Send them the links to the reviews that you have published, and you will be soon be able to choose another book!
Titles and genres vary, but keep in mind that these books tend to be Christian-oriented. They are not necessarily over-the-top Bible-thumping titles, and they can actually be quite beneficial in your day-to-day life.
Plus, it will give you great experience to hone your writing skills!
