I got an email this morning from Amazon.co.uk inviting me to join their Amazon Vine program.Â The same program has existed on Amazon.com for a few months. If you haven’t already read about Amazon Vine, here is a quote from the email
As a member of this exclusive community, you’ll have free access to pre-release and new products, as well as the opportunity to be among the very first to review them.
So they want to offer me free pre-release books in exchange for me reviewing them.Â I’m okay with that (particularly if I can hold of the third book of The Green Rider series)! I am already registered for a similar program, LibraryThings’s Early Reviewers, but unfortunately it is not currently open to people in the UK so it is great to find a program I am eligible for.
Amazon Vine is an invitation only program so I’m chuffed to have been invitied; although I’m not completely sure if it is because I’m one of their top reviewers (ranked 2616) or because I buy from them on a regular basis.
However, I have done some reading about the Amazon.com version and it appears that thing haven’t gone completely smoothly, so I will see how it goes. I will let you know how it goes and hopefully provide you with reviews of new books.
