Tuesday Thingers

Today's question: Early Reviewers- do you participate? How many books (approximately) have you received through the program? Have you liked them generally? What's your favorite ER book? Do you participate in the discussion group on LT?

I do participate in Early Reviewers. Since I joined in April of this year I have requested books from every batch and have been lucky enough to receive three: Woman of A Thousand Secrets by Barbara Wood, The Matchmaker of Perigord by Julia Stuart and The Victoria Vanishes by Christopher Fowler.

Out of the first two I would have to say my favorite was Woman of a Thousand Secrets, but I liked both of them. I just received The Victoria Vanishes from this month's batch, so it's too early to say about that one. I try to request books that sound interesting to me and I think the algorithm does it's thing well, too, matching me up with books that fit with my library.

I do participate in the discussion group but not to the extent that I should. I have gotten very busy with other reviews here on my blog and that cuts into my time a little bit. It is a great program and I really enjoy being a part of it.

To be honest most of the discussion isn't really that interesting anyway. It's mostly just people posting their reviews. I try to participate as well, but it's not too exciting.

I've gotten one book and have been notified that another is on it's way. The one I got was fantastic!

I thought The Victoria Vanishes sounded like the most interesting book from the Sept batch!

I agree with Meghan. The discussion group is not that exciting so don't beat yourself up :-)

Thank you!!

About Me

New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
