Welcome to the How to Read for Less series here on Unputdownables! For five Wednesdays I’ll be sharing about some of my favorite ways to read for less.
Giveaways & Free Books (and how to find them):
I’ll make this super easy. You don’t need to/ want to read through a bunch of paragraphs hearing me talk about the awesomeness of giveaways (aka free books) do you? Instead I’ll make a tidy little list that you can bookmark and come back to whenever you are in need of a new read.
- Unputdownables Giveaways Page: This is an updated page that lists giveaways (with links) that I have found or been given the alert for. AND Unputdownables Early Reader Program that I’ve started to give my subscribers a chance to get books before they are out to the public. (Please, you think I’m not going to plug my own blog?)
- GoodReads First Reads (must have an account on GoodReads for this).
- Twitter: #bookgiveaway , #BGRT (book giveaway re-tweet), or #bookgiveaways (follow these, or just periodically check them, people are doing all the work for you, all you have to do is go to the sites and enter). Find out how to use Twitter here.
- LibraryThing Early Reviewers (must have an account on LibraryThing for this).
- Blogs: Frequently visit (or better yet, subscribe!) to your favorite blogs and enter in their giveaways. It’s free and easy (will usually only cost you a comment, or a couple of lines on a form). There are too many great blogs to check out in the universe for me to list them all here, but a good place to start finding favorites is on the Indie Lit Awards page of Directors and Voting Members (you’ve gotta love a page where bloggers are not only organized by genre, but you can also see blurbs about each of the blog authors).
Do you have favorite giveaway sites that you frequent? Share them here in the comments section! Do you often do giveaways on your blog? Fell free to share the link!
