Free books for bloggers!

Do you love to read? And love to write reviews? are several great ways to get entirely FREE books for yourself! (of course writing a 200 word review isn't work!)
Books I received for FREE from January to March 2012!!!
The first program which I signed up for-BookSneeze, has proved to be the easiest and best still:
I review for BookSneeze®
Christian books published by Thomas Nelson pub.
Bloggers get free books- signing up is very easy, and you give your blog address where you will be posting the reviews. This is the easiest site to request books on, as well as to send in your review since you just post the links to your review....and they have had a large variety of even print books available in the past!

125 x 125
Another site of Christian books. Set up is simple, as well. As is the process of entering your review links, and requesting your next book.

Christian books from small companies- I have received  two books through them, so it's safe, although it's not as professional as the other companies.  When you sign up, you have to wait for an email, and to request a book you request a book, just visit their page of available books (link provided in an email they send you) and click on the request button under the book you desire to review: this will open up an email to send to them; make sure you include your mailing address. 

I Review For The Tyndale Blog Network
(click on icon above)
TYNDALE PUBLISHERS (Christian books- system works through your email: you sign up, they decide if you qualify, then they send you names of books available through email. Pretty good, although there aren't many books available.)

My least favorite program, this one is pretty simple as well, although I haven't cared much for their books. They always notify through make sure you check your email if you want to know about books! They will also send you an email when you request a book, and they will tell you where to send your review....

New Leaf publishing
Books from Answers In Genesis, and more, this program looks exciting to me. But I only just signed up. The company has to make the decision before letting you join.....But it's worth a try!

LASTLY....what do you do with these books if you DON'T want to keep them after reading them? Why....SWAP them, of course! :) You are not allowed to sell the books you received in exchange for a review, but definitely suggest swapping through this fantastic program:
When you sign up, through the below link, they will ask you on the page if anyone referred you. I would be SO happy if you would say I referred you! (my name on the site is ''MAZZOU'') THANKS A BUNCH.

Trade Books for Free - PaperBack Swap.More about the site....
You simply join, just start listing books you have which are in good condition, and when a book is requested from you, you package the book and pay for its shipping. When the book is received by the other member, you will get a credit (1 credit per book!) to use to request any book off the site for YOURSELF! :) Oh- when you list 10 books, the company automatically gives you 2 credits as a gift. :) And the referral system gives you 1 credit every time a friend lists 10 books. It's much simpler than it sounds! ENJOY. I have, so far, received 4 great books in like-new condition! Very exciting.

Book Review: Primal

PRIMAL by Mark Batterson
paperback 2012

Are you living your Christian life to the fullest? How much do you love God? How much wonder do you have for our Creator, Lord and King? How much love do you have for those around you? How much love do you have for God, for that matter?

In this his second book, Mark Batterson encourage, challenges and beseeches Christians to examine their life..and to go a step furthur, or rather, in his own words, a step deeper in your walk as a believer! And while you're at it, to go MORE than a step deeper. Rather, MILES deeper, back to the true meaning of following Christ! In Him is ultimate life, ultimate peace, ultimate fulfillment.

This book's contents are divided between five chapters: The Heart of Christianity, The Soul of Christianity, The Mind of Christianity, The Strength of Christianity, and Discussion Questions. Within each chapter are several topics, each packed with old and new revelations of wisdom and truth. Sure to inspire you!

I include my favorite quotes from the book:

''Does your heart break for the things that break the heart of God?''

''Our country needs a reality check.''

''Just as you are responsible for your actions, you are responsible for your re-actions! Compassion is always the right reaction.''

"It's easier to act like a Christian than it is to react like one. Anyone can put on an act. But your reactions reveal what is really in your heart. And if you love God with all your heart, you won't just act like it. You'll react like it too.''

Although there were moments in the book which made me cringe (such as weak descriptions of God's humor, Jesus' ''wild side'', and references to God thinking His children are well as the author's statement that ''joking can be a form of praying''. Excuse me? I don't think so!), the book is worth the read! I recommend it. A refreshing point about this book is that the author writes with much knowledge- this is not just another easy reading book, even though it is passing simple to read through.
