Anyone who knows me remotely well knows I am a book lover. One of the joys I have in serving on the board of Ministry Today is that I get to review books for the journal/website. (Search for me on the site and you’ll find them.)
I have now come across another source of Christian books to review: Book Sneeze. Thomas Nelson, the American publishers, have set this up. If your application is accepted, you may ask to review one of their books from a limited list. The conditions are that you write reviews of at least two hundred words and post them on your blog and on a commercial site such as Amazon. There is no censorship of your opinion by the publishers.
I am about to send off for my first book. When I review them on this site, I will make a point of openly declaring that it is a title I have received under this scheme.
In the meantime, perhaps some of my blogging friends who read this might be interested in the scheme. (No, I don’t get anything for plugging it.)
Seems an interesting concept – have just sent my application form off so here’s hoping.
I hope you’re approved. My application took about two to three working days.
I am one of their reviewers as well! I did most of my reviews before they changed the name, back when it was just Thomas Nelson Book Reviews. But it was cool, and I hope you enjoy it!
I must seek out your reviews on the site, Dan!
Membership just been approved – have requested first book so quite pleased with speed of response.
Yes, that was very quick – maybe they thought I was dubious and wobbled for a while!
