WIP has new funding for our “Readers Review” offer. Each month we publish a list of books (here). If you’d like to be considered to review one of them, email us and put BOOK REVIEW in the subject line. We will buy the book (or reimburse you if you buy it) and pay $50 if the review is accepted. If any of these books looks interesting, let us know. Or propose a book yourself.
