ONLINE BOOK CLUB Pay: $5 to $60 Receive a free book and get paid for your review of that read. To begin, sign up, simply with your email.

WORDSRATED Pay: $200 Get paid for every read book. The focus of WordsRated, a “non-commercial research organization”, is on books, literature, and publishing data.

As "Bibliofile-at-large" contractor, you’ll be given books to read, and asked to give specific details about each book. E.g. how many sentences were given to male in contrast to female characters, or other specifics that appear in the book.

BOOKLIST Pay: $15 for each review Booklist reviews help guide school and public library workers in purchasing and suggesting books.

Booklist reviews are 150-175 words long, and exist to help a librarian put that book in the hands of its ideal reader.

Becoming a Booklist reviewer starts with filling out a reviewer application. Be clear about your experience and interests so that you can be paired with the right books.
