For nearly a decade, the Jewish Review of Books has brought you insightful reviews of the best Jewish books being published. Now it’s your turn! We invite you to participate in our first reader review competition (with prizes).
Here’s how to enter: Choose any book published in 2018 that you think would interest JRB readers that we have not already reviewed (search our website to confirm). We are interested in fiction, nonfiction, reference works, graphic novels, children’s literature, Hebrew titles, and more. Write a snappy (maximum 250 words) review of the book and send it, along with complete book information (title, author, publisher) to [email protected] with the subject line “Reader Review.” You may send your review as a .doc or .docx attachment or type it into the body of the email. A maximum of three reviews per reviewer will be accepted. Please submit your review(s) no later than Tuesday, November 20, 2018. You do not have to be a subscriber to the magazine to participate.
Winning reviews will be edited by JRB editors and published online. Winners will receive any book of Jewish interest of their choice (up to $100 in cost).
Need some reading suggestions? Look to our previews of books coming out in August, September, and October of this year (we’ll publish one for November in a few weeks). Other questions? Email [email protected].
Looking forward to your reviews!
