One of the perks of working in a bookstore is the privilege of reading books long before they're published. Because of this, our staff has read advance copies of books that went on to become mega-bestsellers — titles like Twilight, The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games and many others — all before they reached the general public's radar.
Interested in reading books before they're published? If you're between the ages of 12 and 17, consider joining B.I.T. (Before It's Trendy). If you're not 12 yet, don't worry. We now have Little B.I.T. just for you!
Both groups get access to advance reading copies, and in return write brief recommendations for books you love. If your recommendation is published, not only will it be placed in our teen section and around the bookstore, but you'll also receive Changing Hands trade credit!
So what's the catch? We have a limited number of books, and therefore a limited number of spots. Download the applications below (pdf). If you're interested in B.I.T., download ourTeen B.I.T. Application and return it to us at Changing Hands Tempe when complete. If you're interested in Little B.I.T., download both our Little B.I.T. Application and the Permission Form and return them to us at Changing Hands Tempe when complete.
