Want To Be Our Book Reviewer?

Then keep reading

By Anna Saunders

It’s that time of the year again!

PRIMER is on the hunt for a book reviewer!

For the past year, we’ve had the wonderful Sheree from Keeping Up With The Penguins reviewing our books, and now it’s time to pass the baton to a new up-and-coming book reviewer.

Now, in partnership with Booktopia, we are launching ‘Pick Me PRIMER’ to find someone to write a monthly book review for us for the rest of 2020.

We’ll select and send you the book to review – and we’ll pay you $100 for each review. The reviews will run on PRIMER’s site and social channels.

Plus, every couple of months we’ll send you a stack of (free) books to enjoy! (Because we absolutely love books but there’s only so many we can read ourselves.)

If this sounds like a dream gig (which it is!) then here’s what we would like you to do:

1 Post a photo of one of your favourite books on Instagram or Facebook – or repost the photo from this story (you can also find it on our Instagram post, here). In the caption below, tell us why it’s your favourite book in 90 words or less.

2 Please tag PRIMER and Booktopia in the caption and on the image, and include the hashtag #PickMePRIMER

Note: We are NOT judging you on your photography skills! You can post a beautiful flat lay or a simple photo of the book cover. If your social media page is set to private (or if you’re self-conscious about writing a book review on social media), then post the image and tag it as described above but email us your review and a screenshot of the post at info@primer.com.au

3 Last but not least, please ensure you are signed up to our newsletter (which you can do here) and that you’re following us on social (Instagram, here, or Facebook, here) to be eligible.

Entries close 5pm on 5 June. We will announce the winner one week later on the 12 June.

Know someone who would like to be paid to read and review books?  Please forward this to them.

And if you love books, don’t forget to join PRIMER’s book club facebook group.
