Do you love to read like I do? If you have visited a book store lately, then you know that new books are not cheap. But there are many options for finding free books for those that are willing to do a review, enter a giveaway or write an email. Here are some of my favorite ways to find FREE Books!

Penguin/Random House has a program called First to Read. As a First to Read member, you’ll discover the hottest upcoming books from Penguin, read them months before they are available in stores for free, and have the opportunity to let us know what you think.
Contact Authors Directly
If you have a favorite author, then do a quick internet search for their contact information. Most authors will have a website with contact information. If they have an email listed, then send them a brief email requesting a sample copy for review. Typically this works best with new or independent authors.
Contact the Publisher
For Bloggers: If you have a book that you are interested in reading, do a little research to see who publishes their book. Many publishers will send an advance reader copy to members of the press.
