Goodreads in 4 Simple Steps

Some of us are having trouble leaving reviews on Amazon for Read-to-Win. Here is a great alternative. Goodreads is a networking website just for bookworms! It's perfect for finding book recommendations, following friends and authors, and reviewing your favorite books. Here's how you can create an account and leave a review in four simple steps...

Step 1: Go to Enter your information into the circled boxes, and you now have an account! Simple as that! There will be self-explanatory steps to customize your profile, find friends, and choose favorite genres; but right now let's focus on reviewing.

Step 2: Type the book's title into the search bar and the select the right option.

Step 3: Click on the small green arrow under the book's cover. You can choose to mark this book as "to-read", "currently reading", or "read" on the pop-up menu. In this case we are leaving a review so mark the book as "read".

Step 4: Choose your rating, write your review in the box below (I use Chautona Havig's no-brainer method), and click "save". Your review is now published!

Enter the direct link to your review in the Read-to-Win giveaway! If you have any questions, feel free to comment below.
