Anyone who loves to read and review, I'll give you the code to download my books for free in ebook version. My foremost reason for offering a free book is because I appreciate what you do. Without good reviews, my book just sits on the shelf and only a few people knows about it. I know at least 60 people personally who read my novel because a friend recommended it to them, and they're telling me how much they enjoyed it, they're discussing the characters and events in my book and can hardly wait for the next book in the series to come out. About my health related book they're successfully using the dietary advices and herbs. Would you think out of 60 people at least one or two would take time to write down what they telling each other and me about my story? Nope, not one. I'm getting great reviews from total strangers instead. I asked a few people, and I'm getting excuses such as 'I don't have an account' or 'I will, I just don't have the time' and 'It's easy to tell you, but I don't like to post it for anyone to read about what I think.'
I understand, and I'm not pushy about it, I asked only three out of many, and I'm extremely happy that they like my books.
However I need reviews that make my book more popular, therefore I thought that I'll ask the avid readers here at Goodreads who love to read but cannot spend a lot of money to buy books, and are not shy about writing down their opinion to consider reading, reviewing and perhaps recommending my books to their friends. Please let me know if you're interested, and I'll message the code to you for free download.
Authors who would like to offer free books to reviewers, please join me and post your book here as well.

Thanks for your help.

I'm planning to read your book Gladys, not only because I read those reviews and I want to give you my opinion, but because the story sounds very interesting. I just couldn't get to it yet. Message me the code, and I'll read it when I finished the one I'm rearing now. I see that you reading the short first part of my Ilona's story, I'll message you the code for the whole first book.

Kim (kimeleon) | 4 comments I will read an review, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to do it straight away. Got a little backlog going :/

Is it something I could be emailed/downloaded? Can read at my own leisure then, otherwise have to battle the rest of the family for the internet.

I can give you the code for smashwords, you can download from their site to your PC but I haven't quite figured it out yet how to get the file to my Kindle. I'm trying to transfer Glady's book, I have to read the manual which I hate to do. If you know how, let me know. If it's more convenient, I can email my book to you in PDF. Let me know

Kim (kimeleon) | 4 comments I don't have a kindle so PDF would be alot better for me. I can give the download a go unless it is already on email?

I copied these instructions on transferring smashwords books to the kindle from Patti on the UK kindle forum, hope she doesn't mind:

For those who do not know it, putting your Smashbooks purchases onto your Kindle is easy peasy,

Make sure you download the correct version for your ebook reader. The Mobi format is the one for our trusty grey friend.

Once you've saved it to your hard drive, plug in your Kindle and either drag and drop the file into the documents folder on the Kindle, or copy and paste it there.

The other way to get the file onto your Kindle is to attach it to an email and send it to your Kindle email address. Remember to use wifi and the free.kindle.com address or you'll get charged for the service.

Thanks Kate
That's what I kept missing the whole time, dragging the file to my kindle documents. Duh, one simple step prevented me from reading on Kindle
