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?

My answer: I've been a participant in the program since August of 2007, and so far I've received 8 books through the program. I haven't received a book in several months though- I think since February of this year! The books I've received through the program have been a mixed bag- there have been a few that I really liked, like The Genizah at the House of Shepher, and a couple I've hated too. But it's fun to see what's coming out and once in a great while snag a freebie. And oftentimes the books I'm interested in go on my Bookmooch list and I've read a few that way as well. I don't really participate in the LT discussion group.

I do participate and think it's a great idea, but I haven't gotten any books yet! I do get ARCs, though.

This is one I could do. It seems to be a very popular weekly feature, I should try it. I've only done Monday Mailbox and Saturday Review of Books so far. I always read your Tuesday posts though.

Julie said...

Yes, I love ER!!!

And I actually looked at the prompt today, instead of remembering the following weekend when I had two brain cells to rub together. :-)

Marie,
Thanks for Matriomony! Sorry for bugging you, I added you to my address book, so you won't get blocked next time...wishful thinking!!! That is just so strange...weired e-mail programs. Thanks again:)

Tuesday Thingers on Friday :-).

I'm the last one to the party! It's Friday Thingers for me this week :)

Marie, this was a great question. It made me stop to consider that I've been very fortunate in the ER program (both with number of books received and quality). Of the 5 I've received, two were so good that they more than make up for the one I found very lacking!
