Already applied for Jacob Hills By Ismita Tandon Dhanker. I had read her previous book and found it to be good.

Me being a big fan of non-fiction books, have applied for the only non-fiction book among the 7. Generally this category doesn't have much competition and hence I am hoping for the best :D

Aren't there three non fiction books : Silent Cinema in India, Billionaire Boy and Bong Mom’s Cookbook

Ha ha. I did not notice the cookbook! For some reason, I chose to overlook Silent Cinema in India as well. I translate 'Business' as 'Non-Fiction' internally, and that seems to have carried on in my comment as well :)

I checked the forum but it seems everything is related to that "Get Published" contest...I wanted to know if this is a part of that contest. Because if so, it's useless for me because I haven't participated in it.

Sfurti Juztamom

No, there is a book review section, check that

Prasanna Rao

I think it should be for all Indibloggers and not just for those who participated in GP contest :)

Ok. So you have to seek approval to write a review about a book you want to?

Ranjith

I doubt if they have rules.

Just go to http://www.indiblogger.in/getpublished/ , click the 'Apply to Review' button of any one of the seven books and you are done!

Nandini Deka

no need to seek approval....once u apply u'll get mail that books are sent on first come first serve basis....so if u apply amongst the first ones...u'd get lucky and get the book....then read and write review on ur blog and then post the link back on the indiblogger review page...simple

Sfurti Juztamom

I think its firstcome and first serve for each book and open for all indi bloggers

I received 'Jack is Back' two months after applying for it. And 'toke' took around five months to arrive.  I think that the books are sent in batches.

I chose Tower of Silence this time. The last time I had chosen Toke by Jugal Mody and my parents were horrified when the book arrived. It had come directly to my house instead of my hostel room. Hopefully the book will arrive soon, else I'll miss it again as my semester break draws to an end.

Hope they will inform us before sending the book and not just send the book across. Depending on the time they are planning to dispatch the book, I may have to update the address where I will like to receive it.

Ranjith
from hyderabad

They won't! Frown

I received the second book just the day after I reached my hostel. If the book arrived a day earlier or if I had gone to my hostel a day late, I would have missed that book...

Any idea when they'll confirm about the selection? Anyway I think they're not much bothered whether you review it or not after you receive it... Somehow i find BA's book review program more systematic apart from their ridiculous 7 days reading+reviewing time :-)

Ranjith
from hyderabad
5 years ago

They never send any rejection mails or not even mails saying that you will recive your book! Frown

Isn't it good that they don't bother whether you post a review or not? You can throw away the book if you find the story stupid enough - like your experience with Toke. Tongue out

 

Anunoy Samanta
from Bardhaman

Certainly so... But i heartily wish to complete a book and review it... Anyway all is well :-)

I'm not sure if applying for the books is still open. Visit this page : http://www.indiblogger.in/getpublished/ If it is still open, then you will see buttons named 'Apply for this Book'. Click on the button corresponding to the book that you want to review.

Does it show in your InDispatch?
Anunoy Samanta

books sent by HC doesn't seem to be recored at Indispatch... telling from my past and present experiences Wink

and one more thing, it's directly sent to you by HC, not IB Smile

Ranjith
from hyderabad
5 years ago

For me, the book Jack is Back was recorded but Toke wasn't recorded. If I am correct, 'jack is Back' was sent before IndiDispatch came into existence while Toke was sent after IndiDispatch. So, it might be that IB didn't update IndiDispatch after its launch. Innocent

I got both Toke a month back and The Tower Of Silence delivered now. My IndiDispatch doesn't show anything, it simply says that I haven't been sent anything. Can I do something about it?

Ranjith

Can I do something about it?

It looks that those books are not shown in anyone's IndiDispatch.

If you want them to be shown right now, contact Renie. Sealed
