Early Reviewers June bonus batch: Rewired

The June 2010 Bonus batch of Early Reviewer book is up! We’re giving away 15 copies of Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn, by Dr. Larry Rosen. Check out Larry Rosen’s website and blog, Rewired: The Psychology of Technology, on Psychology Today.

I’ll be interviewing Dr. Rosen at the end of the month, about how available technology (iPods, video games, computers, cell phones) are affecting how we absorb information. Dr. Rosen’s book is primarily about how children’s brains are rewired by access to these technologies, how the way we’ve taught is not taking these rewired brains into account and what we can do about it.

I’m taking questions from LibraryThing members. If you’d like to ask Dr. Rosen a question, please post it here. If you’d like to purchase the book, you can get it on sale, through our friends at Book Depository for US$11.49 (and free shipping!)

To request this book, make sure to sign up for Early Reviewers. If you’ve already signed up, please check your mailing address and make sure it’s correct.

Then request away:
http://www.librarything.com/er/list

The deadline to request a copy is Friday, July 2 at 12PM EST.

Eligiblity: Publishers do things country-by-country, and this particular giveaway is only available to US and CA folks.

April/May Early Reviewer Bonus Batch!

Surprise! We just sent out the April Early Reviewers winners. But we have the opportunity to give out a few more books quickly. So here it is: A tiny bonus batch, closing on Tuesday.

  • The deadline to request a copy is Tuesday, May 4th at 6PM EST.
  • Canadians: Both books are available to you, and one is for you alone!

The War Memoir of (HRH) Wallis, Dutchess of Windsor by Kate Auspitz

“Was it the greatest love story of the twentieth century or a bloodless coup?

She was the first person to be named Woman of the Year by Time magazine. Yet Wallis Simpson is one of the most reviled women in history. The social climbing divorcée was portrayed as a snob and a voluptuary who came close to destroying the British monarchy. But could she have been the pawn of Allied statesmen determined to remove a Nazi sympathizer from power?”

The book comes to us from Viking Canada.

Gnoll Credo by J. Stanton

From a world in which Avatar is Fight Club instead of Disney’s Pocahontas, James Tiptree, Jr. wrote The Dice Man, and magic doesn’t work any better than it does here…
…we bring you The Gnoll Credo. Sell that ‘enchanted’ sword and come join the hyena-people. Don’t wear your good clothes.

The book comes to us from 100 Watt Press, and also appeared in our March batch, when it was requested 820 times.

How to participate. First, make sure to sign up for Early Reviewers. If you’ve already signed up, please check your mailing address and make sure it’s correct.

Then request away! The list of available books is here:

Early Reviewers February batch is about to close

If you enjoy reviewing books, and like getting free books in the mail, then this is the month to request an Early Reviewer title. There are 3,495 copies of 107 different books, all of which are either not published yet, or just recently published.

In previous months we had half this many copies available, which means this month twice as many members will win a book!

Points to note:

  • E-books are listed at the bottom. Each ebook says “This book is an eBook, not a physical book.”
  • You never know what you may win, so only request books you’re interested in reviewing yourself.

Sign up for Early Reviewers here. The February batch closes this Friday, February 26th at 6pm EST.
