Anyone interested in receiving books for review? We often get requests from publishers so I'd be glad to make arrangements for members of this group to receive review copies with the understanding that reviews would need to be written in our Reviews section. If you are interested just let me know. :)
We are still working out the possibilities but I'm glad to know thre's some interest.
If we are to encourage book publishers to provide review copies for the group members we need to get some active conversations going on about books. So I suggest you start by posting reviews and discussing them. Maybe lists of your favorite books for readers of different age groups.
Hi. I would love to help with reviews. I am also an author and could possibly ask my publisher to have her kids books submitted here for reviews? I am sure a few of the authors (myself included) would be happy to even send a hardcopy free if it will be reviewed by a great group of moms. I am not sure how this would all work but I love books, writing and encouraging kids literacy so let me know! Thanks.
Thanks for your interest everyone! As Cynthia mentioned, we can begin by posting our reviews in this group and generating discussion. I will mark on my calendar to post a new review every Wednesday. If any of you would like to join in then maybe you will choose a day of your own. We can also discuss what Mothering members may be looking for in a review. We can address these needs by and coming up with a format to follow when we review books.My inspiration is the site: http://www.commonsensemedia.org/. They have sections, such as "What's the Story?" "Is it any Good?" "Explore,Discuss, Enjoy" and "Book Details" that help guide the review and offer a familiar format for the site's readership. Do you have any ideas?
