Write a Review, Get a Book!

gift certificate

You're always on the lookout for a great read.  Something that will draw you in and make you flip pages all the way to the end.

If you help someone else find a book that's the perfect match by writing a review, you'll receive a gift certificate to buy your own next read!

Here's what to do:

  1. Get permission from a parent or guardian to submit your work -- your review will be public!
  2. Pick a book you enjoyed (one you have read all the way through). It can be the one you just finished, or a favorite you've read 17 times
  3. Write your review
  4. In your review, include your name the way you'd like it to appear for publication
  5. Fill out the form below 

Here's what to write (and not write) for the review:

  • an interesting title
  • a hook that grabs the reader's attention
  • the setting or genre of the novel (if it's a non-fiction book, tell us the focus of the book: a person, a place, a historical event, etc.)
  • a little info about the protagonist or the main events in the story, but NO SPOILERS!
  • why you liked the book
  • which readers would enjoy the book - grade level? interests? guys or gals?
  • here are some sample reviews to inspire you: Review A and Review B

If your book review is chosen to be published on the Student Blog, you'll receive a $10 gift certificate to Better World Books, an online bookstore with thousands of titles under $10!

Limit one gift certificate per person.  This offer is not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash or other goods. Gift certificates will be sent via email.  A valid email address must be included, or the sender voids the prize.
