FREE Books and Awesome Opportunities for YOU!

Saturday, January 17, 2015
Hello, all of my awesome minions! I have a really cool opportunity for you guys who enjoy reading! I have a ton of books that I would love for you to review for me right here on Of Spectacles and Books! And the best part is... you get to keep the book if you review it for me! I know most of the people who follow my blog are book bloggers, so know that I am more than happy to link back to your blog, and you can even add a small bio to the end of the review if you want! I'm hoping this will be beneficial to both parties, bring more people to my blog as well as your blog!

You can select one book at a time to review (I don't want someone to hog all of the books and leave others without much choice). If you select one and review it for me in a timely manner (though know that I am VERY flexible on the post date), I may or may not decide that you can get two next time if you wish. So it's all a matter of turn-around time. If you read a book or begin reading it and decide it's not for you, and you don't want to review it, all I ask is that you send it back to me for another person to enjoy. I don't mind negative reviews on my blog if you find that you don't like the book, I just hope that your review will reflect a professional attitude.

I was just overflowing with books, especially since going to the Scholastic warehouse sale the past three times they've opened, and some of these books were really good that I knew people still wanted to read, so I figured why not.
