    I have been subscribed for a long time, and I have been following you on Facebook for quite some time now but I don’t Twitter/Tweet or anything close, just good old pc use. Hope that qualifies me. I have entered just about all of your weekly RIF book contests. Would love to win a book soon. Thank you for giving us some great book information each week.

  • Daniel Albert

    I’m new here. I signed up a few days ago. Thank you for having a website for readers. I am an avid reader, and I read just about anything, but my favorite genres are mystery, suspense, thriller novels. I also dabble in espionage, and SF. I look forward to be an active member and contribute whenever possible. Thank you.

  • M. Iorio

    I see the last posts here go back to five months ago and I don’t know where else to post this so I’m hoping a mod will see this asap. Is there anywhere I can contact a mod privately about an issue I’m having with my account? It’s urgent…..thank you for anyone who can help me.

    I am so excited to get the info on this site! I am a voracious reader but tend to stick with known authors I love. Hopefully this with give me a chance to spread my wings somewhat. Thank you for that chance!

  • Laurel Hamilton Eden

    Aside from the pleasures I get from holding a book in my hand, imagining its possibilities, and then reading it, I love deciding who will next have the opportunity to share my experience. I’m a big believer in reading it forward.

    • Kira, editor @ Read It Forward

      Wonderful to hear, Laurel!

  • Tam Joyce

    I love this site. I have won some books and am finally writing reviews. I won the Elders by Ryan McIvains. It is a book I wouldn’t have picked for myself, but I enjoyed it. It brought to life the missionaries and the temptations, doubts and trials they encounter. Next I won The Martian, again I don’t usually read science fiction. I really liked this book, felt like I was there working hard with the hero. I passed it to my 17yrs old neighbor who really enjoyed it also. Next I won What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman. It was humorous and touching, a very enjoyable read. One of my new favorites is Ruby by Cynthia Bond. This book takes you into the life and world of Ruby. I don’t want to put in any spoilers. I want to thank Read It Forward for introducing me to new books and new authors. My friends are happy too, as I pass the books on to them.

    • Kira, editor @ Read It Forward

      So great, Tam, thanks!

  • Mandy Shunnarah

    I’m a book blogger actively seeking ARCs. If there’s a copy of a book I really want and I’m going to cover it on my blog, how can I guarantee myself getting an ARC of the book? Giveaways are great, but they’re sporadic and I want to provide active, consistent coverage of upcoming books.

  • krazykat

    I am so excited to find out about Read It Forward, I am just now finding out about it. I heard about it from Book Riot’s podcast (one of my favorite bookish websites).

    • Kira, editor @ Read It Forward

  • Caroline Bock

    Okay I’m in two book clubs, I’m a writer, you have me hooked.

  • Penney

    I have won a few free books and have enjoyed reading them. I haven’t heard about a lot of the authors but they are really good. The first 2 books I won for my granddaughter. Princess Pig and Rat Attack by Molly Coxe. They are adorable. They have a lot of bright pictures that really kept her attention. I’ve won and read 9 1/2 narrow by Patricia Morrisroe, False Tongues by Kate Charles, Bye Bye Love KJ Larsen, The Perfect Game by Leslie Dana Kirby, and Map Makers Children. All these books I enjoyed reading. My favorite was The Perfect Game. It keeps your attention and surprises you in the end.

  • Penney Ganley

    I read Luckiest Girl Alive and I thought it was a good book. It kept my attention and it made you want to read to the end to see what happened in the end.

    I was notified October 24TH that I had won the book Felicity by Mary Oliver. I still haven’t received it. Should it take so long? Is there a problem.
