More Early Reviewers books from Random House

Our second batch of books for LibraryThing Early Reviewers is available. Like last time, Random House has given us some advance copies of books that are soon to be published. We’ll distribute them to LibraryThing members to read and review. Note: The current batch ends July 16 at noon Eastern time—this Monday

This batch of books includes:

Some notes:

  • The number of actual copies have SOARED. Random House gave us 420 copies this time, up from 95 last round. That’s thanks to you all; if they hadn’t liked how this was received, they would not have been so generous!
  • Canadian residents are now eligible to join in the fun.
  • There’s some non-fiction in the mix this time—I know that was a request before, so I hope this goes over well enough to get even more next time.
  • One of the offerings (Not that You Asked) is a sampler—not the full book. We aren’t sure about whether to include them, but we thought we’d give it a try. Notably, asking for and/or getting the sampler will in no way affect whether you get other books.

So, what do you have to do to get a book?

  1. Sign up for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
  2. Check out the list of available books and indicate which one(s) you’re interested in reading and reviewing. You can apply for as many books as you’d like, but you can only apply for each book once.
  3. Wait and see if you’ve won a book!

Read the complete Rules and Conditions. By the way, if you got a book last time, and didn’t review it, while it may hurt your chances a bit, it’s not instant death. We have a LOT of books to give out, and we don’t hold a grudge.

We’ve got an Early Reviewers discussion group going on as well.
