October State of the Thing

State of the Thing logoWe’ve just sent out this month’s State of the Thing, LibraryThing’s monthly newsletter of features, author interviews and various forms of bookish delight.

This month we have over 2,000 free Early Reviewer books available, interviews with Kristin Hersh and Sara Gruen, a new feature and a list of the popular books this month.

Check your inbox or read it online.

I got to interview Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses fame, about her memoir Rat Girl. Kristin talks about bipolar disorder, synesthesia, getting to look back on her life 25 years later — and how Colum McCann should totally be a band.

We also have an interview with Sara Gruen, about her latest novel, Ape House, which features bonobos, the media circus and a well-meaning journalist in the middle. Sara talks about meeting the real bonobos at the Great Ape Trust that inspired her simian characters and cheerfully admits to being an animal person. She also lists her favorite ape resources for anyone who’s read Ape House and wants to learn more about them. Last but not least, the interview features a photo of Sara at the Great Ape Trust giving kisses to one of the bonobos!

If you don’t get State of the Thing, you can add it in your email preferences. You also have to have an email address listed.

TOR Early Reviewer books!

Wow! Added to the already expanded batch of Early Reviewer books for this month, we have three books from the publisher Tor! That means we’re up to 87 different titles and like a bazillion copies available to you, for free, to review.

See, what happened was I asked the Early Reviewers what publishers they’d like to see in Early Reviewers. They gave me their wish lists, and at the top of lots of them was Tor! Tor! Tor! So, I asked Tor to ask if they had any books they’d like to offer. They said “Sure!”

So, if you enjoy reviewing books,  like free books (if you read this blog, I bet you do) and dig awesome sci-fi/fantasy, you might want to request one of these books.

MORE Early Reviewer books!

I had just blogged yesterday about the newest batch of Early Reviewer books, which featured 1,906 copies of 72 different titles. For whatever reason*, a number of publishers asked if they could add book to the October batch after it had opened. Of course I let them. Who am I to stand between voracious readers and a big pile of books? We’re now have 84 different books, with 2,086 copies!

If you are one of those folks who jumped in and did your requesting yesterday, you might want to go back and see if there are any other books you’d be interested in reviewing.

Oh no! New books?! Take me back to the Early Reviewer page directly!

*My guess is they were all outside jumping in piles of autumn leaves, at least those located in the northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Everywhere else, I’m going to say it was a case of the Mondays.
