NetGalley offers free ebooks in exchange for your opinion. You must create an account and build a profile that explains how you share reviews online. Think Amazon, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, your blog, or even the NC Conference Media Center’s online catalog. You can designate Christian as your reading preference. After you are signed-up, you can browse the available titles by category and request what you would like to review. If the publisher approves your request, then you can download the ebook to your device. Log back in after reading to submit your review and request more free ebooks!

Once approved, you must review your book within 90 days and then request another one to keep your account active. Currently, they are not accepting new applicants, but keep checking back because they have some popular titles to offer.
