Want to be a Book Reviewer?

Curled Up With a Good Book is looking for reviewers! What does this mean for you? You can choose a book you want to read from their extensive list and they will mail it to you for free. Then you get to write a review of the book, and, if your review meets the requirements below, it will be published on the Curled Up website!

Their guidelines in general are fairly loose:
·          submitted in .rtf, .doc, or .txt format attached to email, or within the body of an email
·          length between 750-1800 words (4-10 paragraphs, app.)
·          minimum of first-person interjections or qualifiers ("I think" or "in my opinion," for example); relevant first-person anecdotal asides are welcome
·          place the book (and/or author) and draw comparisons within the author's own body of work and within the larger body of other books in the same vein
·          aim for approximately equal parts synopsis and commentary/critique -- including what and *how* the author does best -- or worst
·          accompanied by a rating of 1 to 5 stars (1/2 star ratings okay)
·          copyright 2009 by Your Name for Curled Up With a Good Book - first-run reviews only; may be posted to personal blogs or other outlets following posting to, noted as "originally published at"
·          light editing for clarity & readability
