​For Readers:


BookGrabbr is a social media-marketing tool that allows authors to share both full books and previews of their books with readers. Readers, you can have access to these books by signing in through Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn and using their ability to share as a form of currency. The “Share” is the payment! Share the book, and it will allow you to read it. Just click the “Grabb this book” button next to the book and our system will prompt you to share in exchange for reading!

BookGrabbr contains books of many genres, so visit today, "grabb" a book that catches your eye and start reading!


For Authors and Publishers:

Through their unique marketing tool and platform, BookGrabbr helps authors connect to readers that they wouldn't generally be able to connect to through their friends and their friend’s friends. The noise in the marketplace is deafening, and at times can be a bit overwhelming for authors trying to promote their books.

BookGrabbr created a way to generate some more buzz by harnessing the power of each individual author’s social media platform.  Once you create your profile on BookGrabbr it allows potential readers to read a preview of your book or the full copy and then directs them to your site of choice to purchase your book in the format that you desire. And since BookGrabbr doesn’t make any money on book sales, you can send them to a retailer, or to your own personal page or wherever you choose! BookGrabbr's purpose is to help you sell more books, gain momentum and generate exposure.

Book Tour: Leaving Everything Most Loved

Book Title:  Leaving Everything Most Loved
Author: 
Publisher: Harper
Pub Date: March 26th 2013 (336 Pages, Hardcover)
Genres: European Literature, British Literature, Historical Fiction, Mystery, Historical Mystery, Thriller, Mystery Thriller, Fiction
Series: Maisie Dobbs (10)
Disclaimer: I received this book free from the publisher and TLCBookTours for an honesty review.
Description: London, 1933. Two months after the body of an Indian woman named Usha Pramal is found in the brackish water of a South London canal, her brother, newly arrived in England, turns to Maisie Dobbs to find out the truth about her death. Not only has Scotland Yard made no arrests, evidence indicates that they failed to conduct a full and thorough investigation.

Before her death, Usha was staying at an ayah's hostel alongside Indian women whose British employers turned them out into the street--penniless and far from their homeland--when their services were no longer needed. As Maisie soon learns, Usha was different from the hostel's other lodgers. But with this discovery comes new danger: another Indian woman who had information about Usha is found murdered before she can talk to Maisie.

As Maisie is pulled deeper into an unfamiliar yet captivating subculture, her investigation becomes clouded by the unfinished business of a previous case as well as a growing desire to see more of the world, following in the footsteps of her former mentor, Maurice Blanche. And there is her lover, James Compton, who gives her an ultimatum she cannot ignore.

Bringing a crucial chapter in the life and times of Maisie Dobbs to a close, Leaving Everything Most Loved marks a pivotal moment in this remarkable series.

 Jacqueline Winspear is a new author to me. I so nice to find a new author I have not ever read or though try. Her book was refreshing and enjoyable to read.

It nice to see that a woman is a hero and having her own life and having a career she loves to do. Massie Dobbs loves to solve crimes and investigate around her home. She now struggles with if she should travel or stay.

She seems like she loves adventures and want to find out about herself.  I loved the fact that you get to go on adventures with her. She one that will not give up on any crime or miss a boy.  She will get to the bottom of the crime or murder if that the case.

She also struggles with her relationship with James. James seem ready to marry but is Massie? You will follow her and her trials to find out.

Author: 
Genres: Children, Family, Animals
Publisher:  Ideals Childrens Books
Publish Date: 2016-03-08 (20 Pages, Board Book)

Description: As the sun slowly sinks in the nighttime sky, baby farm animals of all shapes and sizes snuggle up with their mamas for a good night's sleep. Little ones will love the cozy animals and the sweet conclusion-a mother rocking her child to sleep. Patti Eubank's expressive rhyming text is paired with her finely detailed illustrations to create a board book that is perfect for bedtime reading. It doesn't get any sweeter than this! Ages 2-5.
 This was a sweet book. It's great for children and parents of little boys and girls. It rhymes a bit. Young readers could read this book. It's best for children.

I love the pictures in the book. They're worth looking at. The author did a wonderful job with the images. They are so realistic and pulls the readers into the book. If you are an animal lover or your child is into animals and want to get them settled down then this is the book for them.
