Interested in reading books before they're published? If you're between the ages of 8 and 12, consider joining Lil' B.I.T. (Before It's Trendy)!

Lil BitYou'll get access to advance reading copies (ARCs), and in return, write brief recommendations for the books you love. If your recommendation is published, not only will it be placed in our middle-reader sections and around our bookstores, but you'll also receive Changing Hands Bookstore gift cards!

So, what's the catch? We have a limited number of books, and therefore a limited number of spots. We evaluate applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. If you're interested, download our Lil' B.I.T. Application and fill it out (and have your parents fill out the Permission Form) and return them to us at Changing Hands Tempe when complete.
