Free books to review?

I'm so excited! I've seen mention around the web about receiving free books if you publish a review on your blog. Bethany House, one of the Christian publishing houses, participates in this type of program. If I see a book at the library by Bethany House, chances are I'll enjoy it. So, I went to their website and filled out the form to be a book reviewer.

A few days later, I received an email stating that there were several nonfiction books eligible for book reviews. I chose one that sounded like something I would borrow from the library and read. The email said that requests will be filled as books are available, so I wasn't sure I would receive one.

My book came in the mail today! I'm going to be reading The Rewards of Simplicity: A Practical and Spiritual Approach. This is definitely something I would have chosen from the library and it also fulfills one of my 2010 reading challenges.

Now I need to read the book and write an honest review of it, discussing why I liked or disliked it. I'm really excited about both the book and the chance to review it.

That is really neat! It sounds like an interesting book! Very cool that you have the opportunity to review it!

I have still been enjoying your Bible Reading posts, though I am behind now and slowly catching up a little at a time ;o)

Thanks! I haven't started reading it yet as I'm trying to finish some books that are soon due back at the library.
