Just you and me kid. Received my new book in the mail today:)
Ha! I'm *really* enjoying the Greek one; almost finished with it. Gonna get the Roman one to read next. He's also working on a conpanion volume to Greek Curiosities solely devoted to ancient medicine! I'm very much looking forward to that one.
Yep! Almost all of my books are up (I started feeling really sick after all of the bending over and picking books off the shelves in order to scan them). Now I just have to go through and tag them all, which is probably what I'll spend the rest of the night doing :)
Thank you so much for the wonderful secret Santa books! I can't wait to read both and I'm so excited that they are both books I hadn't had on my wish list, but that they fit my reading interests so well :D I hope you had a great holiday season and that you also received wonderful books!

I'm happy you like the books, it was really a lot of fun to pick them out ;)
Have fun reading!

Kind Regards
Hello again,

I've finally had the Q&A's back from the lovely Erin Morgenstern, so here's the link to them

Thank you for your question/contribution, hope you enjoy reading them!

Kind regards,

Thank you for your question! Once we have author interview/questions I'll probably post it on the page for the book with the reviews. I'll let you know nearer the time.
Hi there,

I noticed that you have reviewed 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern, and was wondering if you had any questions about the book for the author? I work for a book supply company in the United Kingdom, and we often do an author interview, asking questions about the book, inspiration etc. If you would like to submit a question, I will try and include it, or merge it with others that may be similar.

Thanks, Fiona.
I got an email from NetGalley about The Goddess Test today - hopefully you did, too! Happy reading!
Oops - I misspoke (mistyped?) in my last message, I thought you wrote that you've received e-books within a week (misread the part where you said those were physical books). Have you received e-books from Early Reviewers before?

Regardless, I'll still plan to contact Jeremy if there's no word on the book by late next week.

Hi Serena,
I posted a message in the Early Reviewers "April Books Received" thread asking about e-books. The Goddess Test was the first time I've ever requested an e-book and I am surprised not to have heard anything from the publisher yet. Thanks for letting me know that e-books usually are a lot speedier. There aren't any reviews with the ER logo posted for Goddess Test yet so I assume that means none of the winners of it have received/read/reviewed it. I figure if nobody hears anything by the end of next week, I'll send a message to Jeremy inquiring. Let me know if you get an email about the book before next Friday otherwise I'll plan to contact him.

Thanks for your help.
I'd be most grateful if you could confirm that Momigliano's 'Studies in Historiography' includes the lecture called: 'George Grote and the Study of Greek History'
