Readers Voice


Due to popularity, the Bookshare Reader's Voice Contest has been extended to October 31, 2009.

Have you ever been really moved by a book? Has a character ever fascinated you? Bookshare wants to know, and so do other Bookshare readers!

Through October 31, U.S. Bookshare Members in grades K-12 can participate in the Reader's Voice Contest and win some great prizes! Participants must download a new book in the months of August to October and write an online review of at least 100 words answering the following questions:

  • Did you like the book, why or why not?
  • Who was your favorite character and why?
  • Would you recommend this book to other readers and why?

  1. Login to Bookshare.
  2. Go to the Book Information page of the book you read.
  3. Select "Write a review" from Related Links.
  4. Rate the book from 1 to 5 and write a review.
