Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

You indeed posted it on the wrong forum. :wink: I moved it to the correct forum.

You are eligible to view books for review and the books should appear on your "Review Team Page". However, it takes time and much more posting (quality posts mind you) to get the free books. Off topics posts and one word posts don't count by the way. Good luck!

I understand your question has somewhat been answered.

I am concerned when you say that you went to the Review Team Page and still didn't understand. What does it say on the Review Team Page? If there are no or very few opportunities available to you, that page should automatically check the reasons and provide an explanation. If it is doing that out of error or is otherwise unclear, I would like to modify it to make it more friendly. Thank you.

Ah, this is enlightening! I have been going round in circles! Another question: Do I need a reader to get books or is my laptop fine?
Thank you!

Have you joined the Review Team? You need to do that before you can choose a book. The FAQ explains the process. After you join the team, you will find further instructions on your RT page. Good luck!

You don't have to register your device. You just need a way to download the review books onto your device if you join the Review Team. Many books are in Kindle format so you would either download them onto a Kindle or another device with a Kindle application. For example, I have Kindle for PC on my laptop and desktop computer. I also have a Kindle Fire. If you have an Ipad or other type of tablet, you would need to download the free Kindle app.

In addition, some review books are in other formats such as PDF, ePub, MOBI, etc. It depends on the particular book. Many of the books are offered in more than one format.
