As the First To Read program is shutting down in July, Penguin Random House has just launched a new program: Reader Rewards.
If you purchase books from this publishing house, you should definitely take note!
Details about the program:
In this free program, you can unlock personalized book picks, earn points by buying books, and redeem points for free books. How neat?!
I signed up and poked around a bit. When you sign up, you choose at least three of your favorite genres. Then the platform recommends books within those genres.
Here’s what my dashboard looks likes when I log in:
There are elements mixed into the main dashboard like quizzes and “Which types of (insert genre here) books do you like to read (select any that apply)?” that help fine tune your recommendations.
It seems like this will be a pretty neat program, and an great incentive to readers that typically purchase books from this publishing house.
Looking at my shelves, I have quite a few books from Penguin Random house, so I would love to make better use of this program moving forward.
Thanks for reading!
