I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Tuesday (Thursday) Thingers - 16 October 2008
Today's topic: Early Reviewers - do you participate? How many books (approximately) have you received through the program? Have you liked them generally? What's your favorite ER book? Do you participate in the discussion group on LT?
I do participate in the ER program; it is one of my favorite LT features! I started with the program in July 07, and the last book that I received was in April 08. I keep hoping that I'll get selected for another one soon! I've received 6 books from the program, and for the most part I've enjoyed them all. The first book I received in July 07, Tipperary by John Delaney, was a huge disappointment. I had enjoyed his book Ireland immensely, and was surprised by what a muddled mess this new book was! Not deterred by one bad experience, I kept requesting. The subsequent books that I have received have all been good, with a few topping my reading list for the year such as Meg Waite Clayton's The Wednesday Sisters. I admit I generally don't participate too much in the discussion group, but I stop in to see what other people have to say about some of the books that I was interested in but didn't get accepted for.
