If you would like to become a reviewer for one of the books announced in the AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW posting for the current month, you will need to follow steps 1-4 explained below:

Step 1: Log in to your LINGUIST user account. If you do not have one already, you will be able to create one.

Step 2: Update personal information and add reviewer specific information on why you would be a good reviewer for the books you select.

Step 3: Select books you want to review from the month's AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW list.

Step 4: Confirm book selection.

Once you confirm your book selection, you will receive an email with the list of books that you submitted.
