How It Works

Sign Up
Our team curates incredible nonfiction books each week that we think you’ll love based on your book preferences.

We Send You Free Books
We don’t sell books. We simply take submissions from publishers and authors wanting to get their books in your hands, pick the best free (and nearly free) books and send them your way. You get an email or text with books for download or paperbacks you can select to have delivered to your door.

That’s it! Who doesn’t love free books. As a thank you to authors and publishers a good review on your chosen platform (Amazon, GoodReads, Kobo etc..) is karma gold.

“I signed up for BookMelon a few months ago just to check it out on recommendation from a friend who knows I pretty much always read nonfiction. Wow! They deliver exactly what they promise. Great free books and some .99 books which I have loved. Very happy and I’m reading more than ever.”
