How to Get Free Books (Part 1)

If you are a blogger there are several publishing companies through which you can get free books.  For the next few weeks I will share my experiences with a few of these companies and how you too can get free books in exchange for a book review.

I review for BookSneeze

I first learned about the BookSneeze program through Thomas Nelson CEO Michael Hyatt’s Blog.  I signed up and was soon getting free books for review.  The BookSneeze program in my estimation is one of the easiest programs to use.  Basically you log on to the main page, enter in your information, your interest, and request a book to review.  A week or two later you receive the book, read it and write a brief review.  Reviewers are asked to post on their blog as well as a consumer website like  After you have completed your review and posted a link to both your blog and your review on a consumer website you can request another book.


You get Free Books

You have plenty of time to review the book

The program is easy to use

You can view other blogger reviews


You can only get one book at a time

You get books after the have already hit the market

Thomas Nelson has streamlined the process and made it easy for even beginning bloggers to log in and figure out how things work.  I highly recommend the BookSneeze program if you are new to writing book reviews or new to blogging.  So far I have received and written reviews for 8 books through Thomas Nelson. Compared to the other programs I give it a 4 out of 5.
