Books for Teen Readers

Great Opportunity for Teen Readers
Simon & Schuster will provide free books and advance reader’s copies of their latest fiction and nonfiction titles in exchange for brief book reviews.  Students on the Pulse IT Board between the ages of 14 and 18 will receive one book per month so long as they continue to submit their book reviews.  Participants must have guardian consent.   (
HarperCollins offers First Look Teen, a program to preview books in a variety of genres.  Each month, they offer advanced copies of books for teens to review.  25 reviewers are selected at random to review each title, but they must enter the program to be eligible.  Interested teens complete an online questionnaire and must have an email account.  The questionnaire will ask about their reading preferences so that they will be entered to receive only books in a genre that interests them.  (
Random House offers a teen reader program called Random Buzz through its website.  The website is a community created to bring readers interested in reading and discussing new Random House books for teens.  As a member, you get access to news, promotions and prizes, while interacting with fellow members.  Members must complete activities to earn ‘Buzz Bucks’ towards advance copies of books being discussed on the site and other items.  They can also earn Buzz Bucks through answering polls, trivia and surveys, and communicating through other forums.  (
