I want to use my points to claim my free book but I can’t figure out how! Help please!!

Hi! Once you’ve collected 2000 points (we’ll email you when you do!), you can exchange them for the book of your choice from the current raffle. Simply click the green “Claim this book with your points!” button on that book’s page and the book is yours – without needing to write a First Impression or enter the raffle. Make sure you’re signed into your account so you’ll see the green “claim” button. Hope this helps
