Book Reviews by Bloggers

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~ Jorge Luis Borges. There are people who love to watch heaps of books in their room while others love the smell of freshly printed books. :) And then there are those whose monthly budget includes expenditure on buying books. Bloggers are often enthusiastic and smart readers. One of the best thing about bloggers is that they review books for their readers. We cannot even explain how valuable this is for everyone.

 

What if we give you an opportunity to review books on your blog without buying it? Sounds great, doesn’t it? BlogAdda announces yet another very useful initiative for the blogging community – Book Reviews by Bloggers. Sign up if you are interested, sit back, enjoy reading the book and review it on your blog.

Every author needs some constructive feedback of his writings. And who could be better, than the book lovers themselves. Authors who need appropriate feedback can get their books and novels reviewed by the blogging community. Give details of your book by filling up a form.

Bloggers can write a 500+ word review describing briefly about the story of the book, main characters, likes & dislikes, adventures, writing style of the author and similar things. A good review of a book is useful for the readers and authors alike.

Here’s a shout out to all the book lovers! If you want to review books on your blogs without paying for it, then fill up an expression of interest form (You need to be a registered member of BlogAdda.com). Soon, you will be able to get some amazing books of great authors in return for a review. Make the most of this opportunity! :)

For authors interested to sign up for this program, fill in the Author Form

For bloggers interested to participate in this program, fill in the Blogger Form

    I tried filling in the form but am not able to type anything in boxes after the favourite author text box.
    Is it only me who is facing this issue ??

  2. Kamikaze says:

    I simply loved this initiative. Heading to fill the form :)

  3. Haresh says:

    Would have loved if you would have mentioned more about whole the thing.

    Thanks anyways. Already filled up the form :-)

  4. Sudha says:

    Great initiative. I have one suggestion though. It might have been better if you had asked for favourite books, rather than favourite authors.

  5. admin says:

    Thank you Sudha for the suggestion. We have forwarded this to the concerned team. :)

    Thank you everyone. Keep reading our blog and follow us on Twitter & Facebook to be updated when we announce the books for grabs. And remember, there will be limited numbers of books, so you need to choose quickly. :)

    Wonderful approach…………For both Authors and Reviewers

  15. Real interesting initiative, but I feel would have been even more interesting if we had a list of books to choose from..Been trying to fill the form but some errors from your end….however, here is a sample of one of the book reviews I did earlier on my blog…

  16. Vee says:

    Excellent initiative. I am wondering if people outside India can be a part of this book reviewing process?

  17. Yes I would like to review books. Please inform me the procedure.

  18. Meena Menon says:

    Helllooo… I would love to read n review this esp considering the topic is close to ma heart :-D

  19. Rekha says:

    Would love to try my hand…would be interesting to discover new talented authors too.

  20. shruti says:

    I was trying to fill up the form but came across some trouble:

    “Your earlier book review links (if any)” isn’t accepting the URLs.. says that it’s invalid. Please help. I would love to be a part of this interesting initiative if possible~

  21. Ira says:

    Innovative! Love the idea. Thanks a lot for this Blogadda!

  22. Ishrath says:

    Same old problem.
    The application form does not accept the URL links of our previous book reviews. If I simply give my blog name, will you figure out where the reviews are?
    Cheers!

  23. admin says:

    @Ishrath What is the error you are getting?

  24. Nikita says:

    I’ve filled a form and also applied for the book ‘life is as you make it’. I’ve got no response after that. Waiting to review it!

  25. Thanks to Blogadda, i got the opportunity to read and review “The Boss is NOT your friend” by Vijay Nair- here is my book review link!
    http://whatnonsanz.blogspot.com/2011/06/boss-is-4-letter-word.html

  26. I want to review marketing management books is that possible ?

  27. admin says:

    Note to everyone – Once you have signed up for this program, keep following our blog/tweets. We update our blog with newer books and you can then let us know if you would be interested to review that book. Details on how you can do that will be mentioned on that post. If there are more bloggers interested than the number of copies available, we will shortlist a few and email them.

    Thank you for the overwhelming response.

  46. SR says:

    Hi, Why don’t the links of book reviews not appear in the comments section here after December 14th? Does anybody know?

  47. I’d love to review this book. But its not showing a “Click here to review this book” button

  48. Lubna says:

    Hi
    I won Down the Road, in the recent book review giveaway program. I blogged about it immediately. However, it would be nice if bloggers also provided the url in the archive section of the book reviews for the books that they won. I’ve provided my link there (since it is yet to be moderated, it isn’t yet visible). That will be nice, as we can all read the different perspectives of the readers. Cheers.

  49. Abhyudaya says:

    Waiting… I guess this one is long queue!

  50. Bhawna says:

    I have already filled the form .Cant wait to get started with book review .But i am unable to paste the blogadda link on my blog .Can someone to assist so that the process is completed .

  52. G R Sundheep says:

    What is the next procedure

  53. hi,
    this is a brilliant initiative. can’t wait to get selected!! is there anything else, i mean apart from registration, that i can do to increase my chances to get selected for the book review? i am a huge fan of ashwin sanghi and chanakya’s chant was one of my favorite books!! plz tell ..

  54. Sravya says:

    Wow!! Its a great though of finding the books in blogger. Now we can find huge stuff in blogger. Thanks to BlogAdda.

  55. What a brilliant initiative.
    what is the criteria of shortlisting bloggers for the review copy.
    I am an avid reader, but my blog is relatively new. I mostly read foreign authors but these days I am inclining towards Indian Authors as well. Could you please provide some pointers so that I can improve on blogging.

  56. Sia says:

    Hi I have signed up for the book review program but I have no updates from Blogadda on that front..How do I get the book?

  57. Sia says:

    Again, I am avid reader but have not reviewed books.. My blog is relatively new.. This initiative will help me start doingg more book reviews..Is there a criteria for shortlist?

  58. Snehadarshini R Scindia says:

    a nice place for all book lovers to hangout

  59. Just curious! How long should i wait to know if am eligible for receiving the book for review? And how do i know if a book posted for review is still available or closed?

  60. I am extremely excited to read the review section at Blogadda. This is really something am keenly looking forward to. I love to comment upon brands and services with sharp satire and appreciation equally. Waiting if Blogadda considers me for this job. Long live Blogaada.com

  61. GR says:

    I guess presently this initiative is only for Indian residents. Just had a question if the book review program could be extended to readers at abroad too? I am interested in taking part but the country limitation prevents me from participating. Thanks.
