We’ve* added an easy way to keep track of all the books you’ve won from Early Reviewers. This new page shows you all the books you’ve won and whether you’ve written your reviews yet. You can also mark if you haven’t received a book yet, so that the lack of a review won’t count against you. Once your LTER book comes in the mail, you can mark it received and then add it to your library right from this page.
As we say in the Rules and Conditions for Early Reviewers:
You are not legally obligated to review books you receive through LTER. But subsequent LTER dispersal decisions may take your number of reviewed and unreviewed books into account. A book will be considered “reviewed” if a review is posted to LibraryThing and is comprised of at least 25 words and not obviously nonsense. Reviews may include but not solely consist of a URL.
So write those reviews!
Talk about it in this Talk thread.
Note: You’re not required to actually mark whether or not you’ve received the book. If you’ve reviewed it, we’re going to assume you got your copy. The received data is mainly so we can keep track of books that have gone missing in the mail.
Update: The next step is to add a similar page for Member Giveaway books. We’re doing it as a separate page since the requirements are somewhat different between Early Reviewers and Member Giveaways. But the MG page will also let you see what you’ve won, mark books as received or not, and (importantly) remind you whether or not the member requested a review with the giveaway.
