Goodreads Hacks: Your Guide to Book Giveaways

Here’s a question for you: Do you like books? Well, of course you do. Here’s a followup question: Do you like FREE books? OK, I think you’ll see where we’re headed with this.

Every year Goodreads readers win thousands of free books through our popular Giveaways program. In fact, more than 400,000 books were given away last year alone. Publishers and authors offer the giveaways to build buzz for their books. Not only do you have the chance to win a free book, but many of the books are months away from publication so you’ll be one of the first readers to discover and review them.

Insider Tips for Giveaways:

New Kindle giveaways:

We have good news for everyone who loves to read Kindle books. Our Kindle ebook giveaways program is now out of beta, which means you can enter for the chance to win even more books. Some of the books on offer include [give titles by big name authors with links to the giveaway pages for them]. Another perk? You’ll get the Kindle books right away instead of waiting up to six weeks for a physical copy of the book. You just need to make sure your Goodreads account is linked to your Amazon account so you’ll get the book. You can do that here.

Choose either print, Kindle ebooks, or both:

When you’re on the giveaways page, you can specifically filter for Kindle or print books at the top of the page.

Find out about giveaways for books on your Want to Read shelf:

We’ll let you know when there’s a giveaway running for a book you have on your Want to Read shelf—it’s another reason to keep updating your shelf with new and noteworthy books as you hear about them.

Filter to find your perfect book:

You can browse book giveaways by most requested, popular authors, recently listed, or ending soon. You can also search for giveaways by your favorite genres. So, go right ahead and search for books ranging from science fiction novels to the latest memoirs.
