Thing-a-ma-jig

Today's Tuesday Thingers question, posted over at Wendi's Book Corner, is whether or not you were aware of the Member Giveaways program that is available via LibraryThing.com.

I was not. This seems like an interesting premise (where authors can give away copies of their own books). I had put my name into the hat for a couple of advance review copies via Library Thing, and never been picked, so I kind of gave up. I know, my dedication is so compelling, right? Anyway, maybe I'll swing back over to LT and check out both the early reviewer selections for this month and the Member Giveaways section.

Thanks to Wendi for making me aware of this feature.

I only one one book in the Early Reviewers program and then gave up, too. Although, part of my problem is that my TBR is so large, I really don't need anymore books. LOL

I've looked at the members giveaway and it looks interesting, but I haven't participated.

Don't give up!!
I figure more books offered, more chances!

Don't give up on Early Reviewers! It took me two or three months before I finally received a book, too. You should definitely give it another try.

I have been playing the ER game since the beginning and went through a long spell when I did not get books. The thing is there are more and more people participating - but Abby and LT folks are doing a great job getting more and more books to meet the numbers. Still when there are only 20 books and 1000 people ask for it, the odds aren't great!

The ER program is of more interest to me than this new member giveaway thing (so far).

It took a few months for me to get a book through Early Reviewers, so you might want to give it a try again.

:) I'm still getting the "sorry you didn't get an Early Reviewers book this month, but . . . " LOL - I know I'll eventually get one, so I'll keep trying too!

Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week, we're taking a look at the new LT Memes. ~ Wendi
