The February batch is up: 2,771 copies of 112 titles, one of our largest batches ever. Lots here, including Naomi Novik, Scott Westerfeld, Anna Quindlen, Philip Kerr. And (I was tickled to see this), books covering everything from auto-repair to zombies - how bout that? :-)
For some reason the 2nd book down A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends is displaying with a cover that says "College Acceleration". I think it's pretty funny. :)
The description for "A Voice for Kanzas" says it is in PDF format but it is not marked as an e-book
Oh dear. That's the worst UK selection for a very long time, hardly any books available, and those that there are, aren't my cup of tea. Time for a month off ER I think, and see what March brings.
Not a good selection this month, in my opinion. The book on the Titanic passengers did look interesting, among a few others, but no really good finds this month for me.
I found two; one fiction (espionage) and one not ( 19h & early 20th century nature photography) and will be equally happy with either.
Nothing interesting for me this month, but that's OK; I've been lucky the last few months and need to catch up on my reading and reviewing!
The two that I want absolutely the most (the Novik and Beckett titles) are not available in Canada, but I did find something to request, which is an improvement on the last two months.
Well, the past couple of months have been pretty good for non-fiction, this time not so much. I found 3 "plausible" books to request, but it was pretty slim pickings this time. I've won something in each of the past 11 months, so maybe it's my time to not get one ... we'll see (the three I requested were in very different topic areas, all well represented in my library, so the Almighty Algorithm might still match me up with one of these!).
I requested two books, the Titanic one was very tempting but it is outside the area I am trying to focus on. I trust that the algorithm will not award me a copy of Automotive Diagnostic Systems: Understanding OBD I & OBD II even though I have worked in the automobile repair industry since before either set of On Board Diagnostic regulations were put in place. However, based on the books in my library, I have a good shot at Straphanger: Saving Our Cities and Ourselves from the Automobile
Took a break from ER for a few months but was disapponted with the few e-book offerings for Canada. Still requested one though. Might be competitive with this small grouping.
I haven't been interested in anything in the UK selections since September.
Second month in a row that there is nothing of interest! Am I getting picky?
I admit this selection isn't skewed my way, but then again, very little is. : D Still found two, which is weird. Eh, it swings wide.
Oh, my. I'm rather interested in Fated, but with 150 copies available, I'm not sure I want to risk being a good match for it, because holy moly but A Cultural History of the Chinese Language is soooo up my alley. I wish I could request it twice!
If I don't win it, it had better get comprehensive reviews so that I can make a well-informed decision as to whether it deserves to be in my library. It'd be the only book I request this month, but I know I won't win a few others, so I put in a request just so that I don't forget to look into them when they come out and maybe read them...
On the first look thru, only A Black Hole is NOT a Hole has caught my interest.
