Withdraw a Review Promise

If you've downloaded a book and realized it's just not for you or that the book has been misrepresented, you can withdraw your review promise. We understand that a certain level of withdrawal is normal, so you won't be penalized for it.

If you withdraw review promises because you claimed too many review copies, we might limit your account in that case. If we notice that you're not leaving any reviews on most books that you claim, your account could be banned. A late review is better than anything, so if you ever find yourself having claimed too many books, we recommend you go through your books slowly before downloading new ones.
