    Do reviewers get paid?

  2. Hi, Tara,
    No, our reviewers are not paid, but they do keep the books they review.

    Do you accept reviewers who are originally from America, but who work as English teachers in other countries, such as Taiwan, especially if residents at their original address will be able to mail whatever books need to be reviewed? What about reviewing Kindle additions if available?

  4. Hi, Whitney,

    Write to our review editor, Lisa Kurdyla, at Perhaps we can work something out.

    Thanks for writing,

    RoseMary Honnold, Editor-in-Chief
