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.

Did you go to Amazon Website seperately or follow a link? usually when I pick a book to review it gives me a link to download whichever format the book is free in. Meaning they may have it free in a different format perhaps? I get many PDF's to download for review but their books are not free on the websites they officially sell on. I think it would be a good idea to use the 'contact' option to talk with an Admin or Scott :)

Books that are free for you to review at OnlineBookClub.org may not be free at Amazon. For the
free version, you got to download the book from the download link/button that is available in
the section in which you chose to review the book!

If you are still stuck, let me know and I will try to guide you through the process.
