Volunteers needed to act as Book Reviewers

Post by Jamie »

Hi

We quite often get asked to review books. I simply don't have the time these days to read the books that come our way.

We don't get hundreds but we currently have two books on our 'shelf' waiting to be read/reviewed.

The reviews then help me to decide whether to include them on our website, in our shop, in our newsletters and/or a mixture of all.

If you are able and willing to offer up your services, and you feel able to commit to reading a survivor related book, then please get in touch.

Timings aren't that important and we wouldn't give you more than one book at a time. After the review I would ask that you provided a few paragraphs and a rating (much like an amazon book review).

The more volunteers the better - to share the load :-)

Let me know if you are interested to help out.

Thanks

Jamie

I've been thinking about this Jamie...

I'd love to help but I'm not the quickest reader in the world - so wasn't going to volunteer but then I noticed you said that timing wasn't too important, so I'd probably be ok.

If a book really grabs me then I find it hard to put down, but if a book is hard-going then I struggle...

So that's a 'yes' from me! :)

I'm currently reading books on the subject and would welcome reading more, so I'm happy to help. Like SunshineSmile, I'm not the fastest reader if a book doesn't grab me.

Happy to be included :D

I received the email with the book Jamie. However, I am basically computer illiterate so I will need help from my son to unzip the files. He's not back home for just over a week. I will read it though as soon as possible. Is the author someone who is or was on the site?

Thanks for the great response.

In future I will advertise for volunteers, each time a book is sent to us for review.

Please watch out on the forum for requests.

Cheers
