You have to buy the book even though it is free. As long as you have an Amazon account, it is fine.

I have same difficulty though I am an Amazon customer. When I click download for free from Amazon it leads me to purchase link and not to free download link. I do go through book review , add it to shelf and read review/ reviews from else where. 1) Is it sufficient to enter BOTD raffle 2) how do I connect my account of book club with my Amazon account if that might be the bar.Thanks

Even though it costs nothing, you still have to buy it.

1. As was said above, you need to buy the book even though it is free.
2. You can't enter the BOTD raffle without buying the book.
3. You should enter your Amazon Reviews Display Name on the Preferences tab of your RT page.

Today's BOTD isn't free. You buy it from Amazon.

You go to the book page on Amazon and click on "Buy now".

It can get confusing at times - there have been a few books where it says that it is free on Amazon and when I go onto Amazon there is a cost. I understand that you have to buy some books but when it says its free and Amazon charges....is a bit frustrating.

It may be due to your location.

Not all BOTDs are free. If you want to download the BOTD when it is free, you need an Amazon Account.

If you mean review books, you have to join the Review Team to get them. Please read the FAQs as they explain it.
