Book of the Day Giveaway--January 12th 2021

Post by Thea Frederick »

I don't think any other topics about this have been created, I checked but didn't see any.
The book of the day giveaway is not working for me. Is this the case for anyone else? When I click on the link to take me to a sample of the book it takes me to the book on bookshelves instead with the option to review it. I am already reviewing a book so I don't know why it is giving me that option. But I can't find out how to access a sample of the book. Any ideas?

Thank you!

There is a link on the Shelf to the site that has the book:

Anyway, you just have to sample the book, not to buy it.
