Bonnie Reads and Writes

You can use the Search bar to search for a specific review, keyword, or topic. Indie authors or anyone requesting a book review please click on the Review Requests link on the top right.

I did a lot of reviews years ago and got an email out of the blue from them with the invitation. It is a good program. I’m not sure why they noticed me other than all my reviews.
