*Publish Your Book Reviews Printable (free with a 10 day trial membership)
When you write them at school, your teacher calls them book reports. But when they are published, they magically become book reviews. Harness the power of the Internet to turn your book reports into published book reviews at these five sites.
Amazon.com,”Earth’s biggest bookstore,” is well-known for their success in building an online business from scratch. It also happens to be my favorite bookstore. What makes it special? I like browsing the book reviews written by other readers. To post your own review, first find your book in their catalog. Near the bottom of the book page, you’ll find a link titled “I have read this book and want to review it.” If you are under thirteen, you do not need to share your name or email address. Barnes & Noble.com ( http://www.bn.com ) also publishes reader reviews.
“Welcome to BookHooks. We have 1019 book reports and more coming every day!” Reviews can be browsed by author, title or genre, and are cleverly keyed with a Spoiler Alert graphic if they reveal too much of the plot. Other features that make BookHooks top notch are their book-related games, and links to author sites. In addition to book reviews, readers can also post stories, poems and drawings. On a tech note, the submission page uses an embedded Word document. If your configuration doesn’t support this, look for the Mac link in the upper-right corner.
Interested in scary books? How about fantasy and time travel? The Seminole County Public Library has pages of recommended kid books, organized by subject, and welcomes reviews on any book on their list. There are hundreds of books listed here, and only a handful have already been reviewed. So jump on in, and tell the world what you thought of that last book.

“I use them [the Surfnetkids Printables] in my class. Mostly as jumping off points for my students to do online research, and for homework. I also use them with my daughter and her class assignments. I share your site with other teachers when I do Internet training, and I have also shared your site with my department. You’re in my most helpful sites to teachers. Keep it up!!!” Carlyn E. Little, Science Department Chairperson, Glades Middle School, Miami, FL
