Prosfirst of all, this is a very abnormal HIT and probably breaks all sorts of TOS. BUT, this is a very common requester that i've worked for in the past, and i know her to be trustworthy.
the time depends on how long it takes you to 1. redeem a gift card, 2. purchase a book 3. receive the book (i chose kindle, but the timer allowed for physical delivery if that's your thing), 4. read a chapter 5. provide a few written responses based on the chapter. i got wordy in my responses because it was a very generous HIT and deserved generous feedback.
the HIT is a survey link to provide your email address so the requester can send a gift card to you. the gift card covers any version of the book so it's almost a bonus depending on your choice. she emailed me the gift card within an hour or so with another link for the actual survey, then followed up with further instructions to avoid confusion.
it was all very, very simple, and actually pretty awesome. the book is actually really interesting and i plan on finishing it.

ProsProbably one of the coolest HITs I've done. This is a Harvard Business Professor who wrote a book that wants a specific chapter reviewed for her research. So basically she gave me a $25 Amazon gift card to buy the book, it was only 12 bucks, so $13 is essentially a bonus.
I read the chapter and answered the survey questions. Reading took about 20 minutes, writing took about 10, and ordering the book took about 5 minutes. So that's where my time estimate is coming in. I had to wait for the book to be delivered so the 7 day timer was helpful. Awesome requester. Also responded quickly to an email question I had.

• Week-long timer.
• She responded fairly quickly to a question.
• Chapter was long, but mostly interesting. It's something I'd also read on my own time.
• Received a $25 Amazon gift certificate, which I partly used to buy the Kindle version. After I completed the HIT, I decided to return the ebook as insurance in case the HIT was rejected.
Cons• Need to order book, read the introduction and a long chapter, and then write about the chapter. But I probably wrote less than others.
• Other than the upfront bonus, the requester is a slow payer.
• Likely a TOS violation because she needed an email address to send the gift certificate.
