Being a Book Reviewer

I review books for different venues. One of these is called Reedsy Discovery. When you apply to be a reviewer you may be offered an interview, where you will be briefed on expectations.

There is an opportunity with Reedsy to make money as a reviewer. When you join you open an account that money can be moved into based on your reviews. When someone likes your review and comments on it you may be given a small amount of money. If you love to read and can offer a lot of reviews, your chance of getting positive feedback increases.

If you would like to join you can click here https://reedsy.com/discovery/reviewers/apply?referral=christine-bialczak
If you join through my link I will receive $50! Once you are a reviewer you can have this opportunity too!

Check it out. It is a great opportunity to read books for free, while choosing within your favorite genre or venturing out to see what else you might enjoy!

  1. Hi Christine, Can you tell me more about how this works? How many books are you expected to review in a specific amount of time and are they reviews that get posted for potential readers? I’m not that familiar with Reedsy, but I’m interested…thanks!

    1. Alethea, once you are accepted as a reviewer you are given access to a library. The books in there range through multiple genres. You can choose whatever book you want to read, but you are given a timeframe to read. I read a book a couple weeks ago that was only up for review for a few days. The one I picked today isn’t up until two months from now. The thing is, once you pick a book they rely on you completing it. If you can’t for whatever reason, there is a way to record that but it is only for “emergency” purposes. Once you pick the book, you download it onto your computer or reader. After you are done you post a review. The review is supposed to be a certain amount of words long, but I think they really want quality over quantity.
      When you sign up and have an “interview” they explain the whole thing to you. It really is a nice way to read books. Oh, one other thing, while you are reviewing a book it is not available to anyone else, so they do like the reviewers to be actively reading and reviewing.
      I think that is most of the information. I like it and I like to get to read the books for free. I think they have some sort of suggestion if you can’t give a good review but I’m not sure about it. I would think that it would have to be pretty bad to get less than three or four stars.
      Let me know if you have any other questions that I might be able to answer.
