Free book for bloggers (and reviewers)

By | 2008-09-22T09:39:04+00:00 September 22nd, 2008|

Would you like to receive a free book, before the book even releases in stores? If you are willing to post an on-line review, (and you respond quickly) you’ll get a copy of my newest book, “Rest: Living in Sabbath Simplicity.”

I’m looking for readers who are willing to post reviews of Rest. The first 20 people to leave a comment on this blog will receive a free advance copy of the book’s page galleys. Please only leave a comment if you are willing to post a review of the book on and one other on-line place (could be your blog, website or some other on-line seller). Just to clarify, you don’t have to have a blog, you just have to be able to figure out how to post a review on amazon. You could go to one of my other books right now and post one, if you want to practice. 🙂

Those who post a review (and let me know) will also receive a copy of the book once it is actually printed.

I know you’re going to love this book, which offers a fresh look at Sabbath as a spiritual practice. You’ll learn how to let go of legalism, and embrace the freedom of the gift of God’s rest.

    I’ll bite. I’d love to review it. You know I used to write book reviews, don’t you? Even had a quote picked up in the New York Times. ‘Of course, that was like 19 years ago. 🙂

    I’m game. I’d love to read and review your new book. I enjoyed “Breathe” and “Oxegyn”, and I’m ALWAYS ready to give my opinion. 😉

    I would love to because that is my topic study for this month. And I am not really sure where to go after “and on the 7th day God rested.” And I keep hearing “sabbath” here and there. I think God’s whispering it to me.
    Anyway, where do you want the review? I hope not my blog–because I don’t have one! So if that disqualifies me, I’ll be ok! 😉

    Hi Keri,

    Would love to read and review “Rest”. I have enjoyed Oxygen and listening to you on Midday Connection on WMBI.

    I would love to read your book. I am trying to figure out how to incorporate a sabbath into my weekly rhythm. I enjoy reading your articles through the Today’s Children’s Ministry newsletter.

    I would love to receive your book and post a reply. Having just recently returned to the work after 13 years of being at home, I desperately need to practice and honor God through sabbath in my life. Plus you are one of my favorite authors!!!!!

    I would love receive your book and post a reply for it. I have read “God’s Wisper in a Mother’s Chaos” and it was great, and now I am reading Breathe with a group.

    Hi Keri,
    I’m an avid reader and have posted reviews for other books on Amazon/B&N/etc. I would enjoying reading your new book and posting a review on some sites.
    In the past four years, a time of rest has become essential for the well being of my body/mind/spirit. First, severe injuries forced me to rest – but even after my physical healing, I realized I needed times of rest regularly to function at my best.
    Actually, I posted this quote on my blog last year –
    “We are created in the image of God, and he modeled for us a way of life that makes sense for how we are created. Here’s how to dance the dance of life, he said: work, be creative, use your imagination, throw yourself into it, whether you are washing dishes, reading to your kids and running a household, or trading stocks, reading corporate reports, and running a business. …At the end of each day, stop. Take a rest, eat a good meal, get enough sleep, and refresh yourself. Take time to think about your day, to notice where God was in it and where you were blessed, and to say, “It’s good.” Then go back at it the next day. And after six days, take a whole day off. And say, “It’s really good.” Spend a whole day just pausing, just reflecting on how really good it is, and then start the dance again, at a sustainable pace.” – Keri Wyatt Kent, author of Breathe

    Count me in. Sounds like a great read. I had saved an article re: your book “Listen” and just now sat down to research it online for my Moms Bible/Spiritual Group. To my surprise, I find this offer but also many other good books that I think my group members would really appreciate!! I can’t wait to tell them about these books!! Thank you!!

    Hi Keri, I am behind as usual! I would be willing to read and review this online. I always enjoy reading your perspective on these practices.

    I would love to review the book. How quickly would you need online reviews to be completed? Not unlike Breathe, it would be difficult to rush through something on Sabbath rest. However, at this time our family it transitioning between employment, so I have some extra free time.

    I’m thrilled with how many of you have said you’d like a review copy. They will go out very soon, and I’d like the reviews to be posted before the book releases in January. So, you’ve got three months–maybe two and a half by the time you get the manuscript. I agree with JeanD, you shouldn’t rush through a book on Sabbath.

    I am reading Breathe right now, and have gained so much from it already. In fact, I just wrote about it last night on my blog. I’d love to read and review Rest! Thanks!
