LibraryThing.com is THE place to go for scoring free books!
Interested in finding out an easy way to increase your chances of winning free books? Check out this website!
My go-to website for winning free books:
I've been a member on LibraryThing.com since late 2010, and while I prefer to use GoodReads.com on a more regular basis for my annual reading challenge, adding books to my virtual shelf, discussing various authors and novels, etc., LibraryThing is my go-to place for one thing:
Winning free books.
This includes books from their Early Reviewers 'club' (managed by Library Thing) as well as Member Giveaways (where individual members - including independent authors - list books they're giving away). Giveaways include anything from ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) to novels that have already been published. The books can be either bound copies or digital.
I've had more luck at LibraryThing than at their ‘competitor’ site GoodReads (where I think I won two books total after entering countless giveaways). As of this date (August 2012), I've acquired 18 books from Library Thing's monthly Early Reviewers list. That's almost one every month! I've also had great luck with their Member Giveaways, scoring 20 wins there.
Sure, there were some stinkers in the stack, but for the most part, I’ve enjoyed the books I won. And it’s been exciting to ‘discover’ a new author.
But there is a downside to the site. For me, the primary one - what keeps me away from their site as a daily/weekly user - is that they have a limit to how many books you can put in your shelf. If I recall correctly, it's somewhere around 200; after that, they want you to pay for membership. This may be a non-issue for many people, but for those who like to accumulate tallies of books they've read, it can be a problem.
Still, it's a great site for book lovers in general and I highly recommend it, especially if you enjoy giveaway contests. We all like free stuff, right? So if you're like trying to win free books, this is the place to go.
So why don't you check it out now? Signup is easy - just go to www.LibraryThing.com and click on the "Join Now" button to become a free member. After that, you can head over to the Early Reviewers section and check out their giveaways for the month.
