Review Policy


I love to read and write about books, and I'm happy to entertain review pitches from publishers, publicists, and authors. My tastes tend to be rather eclectic, but most of my reading is literary fiction and mysteries/thrillers.

I am most interested in books 
reading novels by authors whose work I've enjoyed in the past. I organize my Book Review database by author.

I'm focusing on reading quality literature, including the books nominated for major prizes.

Given the option, I prefer to read books on my Kindle. I utilize both Edelweiss and NetGalley for digital review copies.

I do not generally read self-published works.

If you're unsure if your book would be something I'm interested in, please ask.

Timing and Posting of Reviews:
In general, I try to minimize setting specific review dates before receiving the book. Reading and blogging are hobbies, and I enjoy having freedom with what I read. If you have specific expectations about when you want reviews posted, please include that information in your pitch.

I post no more than one review a day, so each review will be the top story on my blog for one day.

I also post links to reviews on Twitter (and attempt to alert the publisher and author if I have their Twitter name). I share my reading on GoodReads, Litsy (nomadreader), and LibraryThing.

Accepting a book for review is not a guarantee I will review it

Due to the large number of review pitches I receive each day, I do not respond to those I am not interested in. I choose to spend time reading rather than responding to review requests that do not fit my reading tastes.

Please email me at nomadreaderblog (at) g mail (dot) com with your review requests!
