While the Shutterfly book itself was physically lovely, our jury rated the photo reproduction in our test book as merely OK to poor. Unfortunately, the photo reproduction was uneven. Our jury judged the book production cheap and the photos uneven and generally disappointing. Plus, our jury rated the print book generally unappealing. The software, though nicely flexible, was limited, and photo reproduction was uneven with, none of the photos turning out great. We put out a call to our friends and fans for pictures of people with their pets.
As a result, we were able to put together a collection of photos from a wide variety of sources, ranging from phones and point-and-shoot cameras to DSLRs. The photographers were mostly amateurs, though one was a pro and a few were serious hobbyists. We did no editing of the pictures other than to crop some of them. Mixbook and Apple did a nice job balancing.
Others had difficulty with it. We designed a page photo book with these photos. To test the flexibility and creativity each software allowed, our design included rotated and resized pictures and clip art, along with angled text. We took advantage of the best each service had to offer in terms of templates, layouts, clip art, text and backgrounds.

I got it from a good friend, who works with authors, and she says that paying for book reviews is unethical, and that no author will do it who is worth anything.
In the beginning, some will do it just to get a few reviews. I hope that this makes sense. I applied with the Contena site and they say that my spot is reserved and that they are full…wow! But, where do I find other places to sign on to be a book reviewer? There is only one place on your list that I qualify for, and since I am an avid and a speed reader natural are there any more companies that accept new book reviewers? I can do one or two reviews a day—depending on the length of the book.
I can read a page book in hours, and I have a photographic memory. From what they say in their FAQs, they do talk about paying for reviews and I believe that at some point, once you prove yourself by doing multiple reviews for them, you might get paid. You have to earn points by posting on their book forums a lot of posts are required it seems…. A new reviewer is only offered a few books to choose from and though you do get a free book, many of the choices are very poorly written and not edited.
The first book I reviewed had been self published and was not very good. But……this person deserved a well written review and I tried to give them one.
I offered constructive criticism and wrote what I liked about the book. The forums are fun; there are lots of opportunities to talk with people about books and other subjects having to do with books.
