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.

Hello my name is apple_pie_sunshine25,
I'm new and would really appreciate it if someone would help me navigate this website. I'm open to any tips, tricks, and book conversations. Also I'm struggling with figuring out how exactly I should get to work. Do I need to buy a book, or do they send us a book free of charge?


Thank you for reading this, I hope to hear from you soon.

Check out 'book of the day' and start by commenting on the Official Review. You should get an email about the book of the day. Also, check out FAQ, and guidelines for writing reviews. Good luck and welcome to the site!

If there is anything you need clarification on, let us know - the site can be a bit daunting, but once you get the hang of it, it's really great :)
Good luck!

I agree with Bianka! Also, for more information on the reviewing process, the "guidelines" tab under your "Review Team Page" button will be a great place to start. Good luck! (:

When you do BOTD. Always mention something in the book when it comes to your comments. You can keep yourself from being disqualified. Comment on other people's book reviews A Lot. Friends will notice and return the favor. That will give you points.
