About to run the notifications. What's headed your way?

Mar 1, 2012, 12:05pm Top

I won The Games by Ted Kosmatka. Really wanted this one. Can't wait to read it!!

Mar 1, 2012, 12:08pm Top

I snagged a copy of sacrificial Magic by Stacia Kane. Fantastic series.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:10pm Top

One Blood by Qwantu Amaru is heading my way.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:13pm Top

I snagged The Woman's Fibromyalgia Toolkit by Dawn A. Marcus. I am looking forward to using this and hoping it has some good advice and ways to help cure or lessen the effects of my symptoms. Very excited!

Mar 1, 2012, 12:15pm Top

I'm delighted to have won Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik. Apparently unlike in the previous ER offering of one of her books, this time having all of her previous books and a few dozen other extremely similar works actually helped.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:16pm Top

The Kings' Mistresses by Elizabeth C. Goldsmith.

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 12:18pm Top

I got Crucible of Gold, too!

Mar 1, 2012, 12:20pm Top

I'm getting Constellation Games by Leonard Richardson - looking forward to it! Thanks, Jeremy and LT (and the publisher :)).

Mar 1, 2012, 12:21pm Top

I'm getting The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker!

Mar 1, 2012, 12:21pm Top

Utterly thrilled to be getting The Replacement Wife by Eileen Goudge!! Really wanted this one, and it's an ebook too, so it won't be a long wait either. Feeling very lucky right now.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:26pm Top

I'm so excited. I got Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato. I've never read this author but I'm always on the lookout for new authors. As a result of the Early Reviewers reading program I have discovered new authors to enjoy. I'm still waiting on a book from January. I hope I get it soon. I like to review books ASAP. I think speedy reviewing helps me get future books.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:29pm Top

I won The Last Song by Eva Wiseman. For two seconds I thought I had somehow gotten a copy of the stupid Nicholas sparks book, LOL!

Mar 1, 2012, 12:32pm Top

I'm so happy! I'm getting The Sound of Red Returning: A Novel by Sue Duffy.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:33pm Top

a new author for me - Mark Mills and the book is House of the Hunted. Excellent. I hope it's a good one.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:34pm Top

I can't wait to start reading The Deep Zone.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:40pm Top

Why rattlesnakes rattle by Valeri Helterbran

Mar 1, 2012, 12:42pm Top

I'm getting Unstuck: Your Life. God's Design. Real Change.

I'm glad I won anything this month. There weren't very many items that I thought had a close enough match to my collection for the algorithm to pick me. I added this one at the last minute. Now I'll have to see if my books from Dec and Jan would arrive before this new one.

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 12:50pm Top

I won Fated I am excited to read it.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:51pm Top

I'm very excited to receive a copy of The Eden Prophecy by Graham Brown!

I'm new to Library Thing very surprised that I won. Can't wait to get it and start reading.

Mar 1, 2012, 12:54pm Top

I've snagged A Black Hole Is Not a Hole and I am really looking forward to reading it.

Mar 1, 2012, 1:00pm Top

I've managed to get Isaac: A Modern Fable, my first ER book in 2012 (and first one in months). I hope that the book will be as interesting as the summary written for it.

Mar 1, 2012, 1:05pm Top

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda excited :)

Mar 1, 2012, 1:07pm Top

Drat, I knew putting all my eggs into the Cultural History of Chinese Language basket might not work out for me. And as time passed without a notification, it became clear.

Whoever won this, please do a thorough review! I'm envious times infinity!

Mar 1, 2012, 1:18pm Top

Getting The Woman at the Light: A Novel by Joanna Brady looking forward to it!

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 1:20pm Top


Mar 1, 2012, 1:21pm Top

I'll be reading The Pather Panchali of Satyajit Ray: An Illustrated Study by Surendar Chawdhary. Love the film and the director so this should be very nice!

Mar 1, 2012, 1:29pm Top

I'll be reading The Woman at the Light by Joanna Brady. Thank you, LibraryThing!

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 1:44pm Top

I got Assassin's Code by Jonathan Maberry, I'm so excited! He's a fantastic writer

Edited: Mar 6, 2012, 1:11pm Top

So excited to learn I have The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen on the way. Thanks LT!

Mar 1, 2012, 1:39pm Top

More Like Her by Liza Palmer - Awesome! Nice switch from the non-fiction of late!

Mar 1, 2012, 1:40pm Top

Looks like I'm getting A Black Hole is NOT a Hole ... since this is targeted at a 7-12 age range, I may do a basic over-view and ask my 12-year-old daughter to have a go at it from her perspective!


Mar 1, 2012, 1:42pm Top

good idea, BTRIPP. I've requested and won a book on running which I requested for my runner husband to review. Worked out great.

Mar 1, 2012, 1:44pm Top

I snagged The Little Red Guard by Wenguang Huang.

Mar 1, 2012, 1:46pm Top

I won Absolution -- just what I need!

Mar 1, 2012, 1:59pm Top

Mar 1, 2012, 2:01pm Top

#33 I won a book from LTMG that was for elementary school age. I read it but asked my grandsons to also read and I incorporated their comments into the review. I think it made a better review!

Mar 1, 2012, 2:04pm Top

I won Automotive Diagnostic Systems: Understanding OBD I & OBD II a book I requested because it relates to my occupation as opposed to my avocation.

Mar 1, 2012, 2:22pm Top

I also won Naomi Novik's Crucible of Gold. I'm not quite current with the series, though, so I have a few books to read before it arrives! :)

Mar 1, 2012, 2:49pm Top

I got The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker. I requested this so long ago I had to check to see what it was about. But when I did it made me a happy camper.

Mar 1, 2012, 2:59pm Top

I'm so excited about getting a copy of Alyson Noel's Fated! At first I wasn't sure I'd get selected, but yay that I was!

Mar 1, 2012, 3:05pm Top

Mar 1, 2012, 3:18pm Top

I will get The Little Red Guard. I'm looking forward to it.

Mar 1, 2012, 3:32pm Top

I'm looking forward to Zombie Island by Lori Handeland. Sounds right up my alley!

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 3:37pm Top

I'm getting Why Rattlesnakes Rattle by Valeri Helterbran. Looks like fun.

Mar 1, 2012, 3:37pm Top

I, Iago. I certainly hope it's better than Iago: A Novel by Donald Snodin, which I reviewed about a month ago.

Mar 1, 2012, 4:07pm Top

I'm getting Fated by Alyson Noel! So excited; I really wanted this one!

Mar 1, 2012, 4:23pm Top

I got a rock, no just channeling Charlie Brown!!

I won The Deep Zone by James Tabor

Mar 1, 2012, 4:26pm Top

I'm thrilled to be getting Faith Bass Darling's Last Garage Sale by Lynda Rutledge

Mar 1, 2012, 4:36pm Top

I'm getting Son of a Gun.

Mar 1, 2012, 5:07pm Top

I am getting Vacation on the island of ex-boyfriends by Stacy Bierlein. Can't wait to start. It sounds very intriguing!

Mar 1, 2012, 5:18pm Top

I got Prague Fatale by Philip Kerr. Love this series and can't wait to get this next installement.

Mar 1, 2012, 5:19pm Top

Redemption Day By Steve O'Brien.

Mar 1, 2012, 5:28pm Top

Nothing for me but that is not surprising considering I didn't request anything. I originally requested the new Anna Quindlen book but unrequested it when I decided I would probably be pressed for time to read and review it. And that was probably a good decision because my December win came yesterday. Yay!!

Mar 1, 2012, 7:09pm Top

i'm getting "Being Lara" i actually had forgot i requested anything this month, so this is a nice surprise. i'm still working on last months win. i've been taking my time, i have so many books to read my reviews are behind a bit, but i still get them done. :)

Edited: Mar 1, 2012, 9:04pm Top

I'm getting The Man Who Planted Trees which was the one book I requested.

ETA: My husband and I actually planted a new tree in our garden this year - an eastern redbud! :)

Mar 1, 2012, 8:01pm Top

I'm pleased to have won The Patient Survival Guide: 8 Simple Solutions to Prevent Hospital and Healthcare-Associated Infections by Dr. Maryanne McGuckin. I work in a children's hospital, and I, my partners and the medical staff actively work to prevent nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections in our patients, so I'm eager to read what the author's recommendations are.

Mar 1, 2012, 8:45pm Top

I'm happy to win Lady John by Madeleine Robins, the sequel to my previous win, The Heiress Companion. This makes my 10th e-book win between LTER and MG. Thanks, LT!

Mar 1, 2012, 9:49pm Top

I'm getting Hollywood Boulevard by Janyce Stefan-Cole. There were several books I was interested in and I am pretty excited about this one.

Mar 1, 2012, 9:50pm Top

I am thrilled to have won A Woman's Guide to Muscle and Strength by Irene Lewis-McCormick. This is fantastic since I am on a weight loss journey and I needed something new to add to my exercising. Now I just need to finish my January read.

Mar 1, 2012, 9:54pm Top

I'll be getting Why Rattlesnakes Rattle. I'm looking forward to it as I enjoy learning about stuff like this.

Mar 1, 2012, 10:24pm Top

I won The Kings Mistresses. I always get excited when I win a book I was planning on buying.

Mar 2, 2012, 12:51am Top

I'm getting Lady John by Madeleine Robins, my first ER ebook!

Mar 2, 2012, 1:31am Top

Paris in Love by Eloisa James. I've enjoyed her romances and I'm looking forward to reading her memoir.

Mar 2, 2012, 9:37am Top

Looks like A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends is headed my way -- looking forward to reading it!

Mar 2, 2012, 10:02am Top

Saving Ruth! winding it's way to Sebago, ME! whooo hoo!

Mar 2, 2012, 10:14am Top

Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato - looking forward to this one!

Mar 2, 2012, 10:22am Top

Another winner of The Little Red Guard here. It sounds fascinating.

Mar 2, 2012, 10:44am Top

I got Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik, my second book of hers that I have gotten as an ER book. (I got Tongues of Serpents as an ER a while back).

Mar 2, 2012, 12:41pm Top

I was never notified either way. What is happening ?

Mar 2, 2012, 12:43pm Top

>73 cindysprocket: - It doesn't look like you requested any in the February batch, so you wouldn't have gotten a notification.

Mar 2, 2012, 2:21pm Top

Lady John by Madeleine Robins. Now to find where I last put my Cybook's usb lead... :-)

Edited: Mar 2, 2012, 7:52pm Top

Excited to receive The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker.

Edited: Mar 3, 2012, 11:25am Top

I'm really looking forward to receiving The Age of Miracles by Karen Walker Thompson.

Mar 3, 2012, 12:10pm Top

Woo-hoo! I got Grace McCleen's The Land of Decoration. It seems to be a "debut" novel, but what caught my eye was the very favorable blurb by Emma Donoghue.

Mar 3, 2012, 5:38pm Top

I just read a review copy of The Hunt it was amazing...

Mar 3, 2012, 6:02pm Top

Snagged a copy of Oxford Messed Up. Looking forward to it!

Mar 3, 2012, 7:30pm Top

So happy to have won Straphanger: Saving our Cities and Ourselves from the Automobileby Taras Grescoe. I enjoy learning about public transportation which I don't have here (suburbs outside of Sacramento) and how city designs shape our lives.

Mar 3, 2012, 7:50pm Top

I received Sacrificial Magic by Stacia Kane.

Mar 3, 2012, 9:15pm Top

I'm thrilled to be getting Anna Quindlen's Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake.

Mar 3, 2012, 11:13pm Top

I won Hide Me Among the Graves by Tim Powers, one of my favorite authors!

Mar 4, 2012, 8:23am Top

I'm getting the same book, and I love learning about public transportation too! :)

Mar 4, 2012, 9:41am Top

Seriously, Just Go to Sleep! :D I'm excited!

Still waiting on my January book, but it's been a loooong time since I've won two in a row.

Mar 4, 2012, 1:11pm Top

Joanne, I also won the Quindlen book. I'm really looking forward to it.

Mar 4, 2012, 1:29pm Top

#84- I disliked his Anubis Gates mainly because I found his characters to be the sort I couldn't find I cared about. Are his other books better on this front?

Mar 4, 2012, 4:16pm Top

I won Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato. Thanks LibraryThing!

Mar 4, 2012, 9:44pm Top

I'm pleased to be getting "The Pather Panchali of Satyajit Ray: An Illustrated Study by Surendar Chawdhary."

Mar 4, 2012, 9:50pm Top

I wanted the Seriously, just go to sleep! So bad, my son isn't the greatest sleeper so I thought it would be awesome. lol

Mar 5, 2012, 8:40pm Top

I'm keeping an eye out for the new Alyson Noel YA novel. It hasn't come yet.

Mar 13, 2012, 11:52am Top

Yes it is!

Mar 13, 2012, 3:31pm Top

I won Prize of My Heart by Lisa Norato and it arrived today. :) So much quicker than I ever expected. Thanks much!

Mar 15, 2012, 1:28am Top

I just posted my review of The Land of Decoration. Definitely a 5-*****.

The book came quite quickly in soft-cover pre-publication proof. It had a lot of typos, but this didn't in any way affect my rating since it's to be expected in a proof copy.

Mar 15, 2012, 4:08pm Top

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda, it looks so good!

Mar 16, 2012, 10:48am Top

I had thought that since The Replacement Wife was an e-book, it would arrive quickly. However, no sign of it yet. Any one else got it, by chance?

Mar 16, 2012, 1:24pm Top

#97- I won The Replacement Wife too and that was exactly what I thought. I thought ebooks had less of a waiting time. I haven't received it yet either, so it's not just you.

Mar 19, 2012, 11:33am Top

I won Fated by Alyson Noel and can't wait to read it!

Mar 20, 2012, 7:29am Top

#98 - The only good thing is that this means that it didn't get lost in my spam folder somewhere. I hope we get it soon.

Mar 22, 2012, 3:09pm Top

I won When I Kill You by Michelle Wan but I haven't received it yet. Anyone else receive this one yet?

Mar 25, 2012, 1:32am Top

i have never waited so long for a St. Martin's Griffin book, they are usually very prompt, which surprises me. I hope I get it.

Edited: Mar 27, 2012, 9:17am Top

Still waiting for my February book, Now What?: A Patient’s Guide to Recovery after Mastectomy by Amy Curran Baker. My coworker just underwent a double mastectomy, so I was hoping to share it with her.

(Never got my September or December book, either. Oh well)

Apr 10, 2012, 12:40pm Top

Has anyone received Naomi Novik's Crucible of Gold yet? I've only received 1 of my last 4 wins. This is getting disappointing.

Apr 10, 2012, 12:48pm Top

104: I still have not gotten Crucible of Gold either. The last Novik book I got via Early Reviewers came pretty quickly, so I'm getting a little worried.

Apr 10, 2012, 12:53pm Top

>104 RBeffa:/5 - Yeah, the publisher says they were sent on 3/13, so I'm flummoxed about where the heck they've all gotten to. Intercepted by French dragons?

Apr 10, 2012, 1:28pm Top

>105 StormRaven:/106: That is a bummer. Our mail and other delivery systems are usually excellent here. I was looking forward to this.

Edited: Apr 10, 2012, 4:02pm Top

104,105 : I also won Crucible of Gold and have not received it although I've already received the book I won in March. I join you in worries.

ETA: 106: Oh that damn Chinese Dragon! I knew she'd be up to something! Whoever said they were mailed is apparently wrong.

Apr 13, 2012, 12:24am Top

Another one who didn't get Crucible of Gold. Drat that Bonaparte!

Apr 13, 2012, 10:07am Top

109: The whole situation surrounding the non-appearance of Crucible of Gold seems odd. I wouldn't be surprised by this from a small publisher, but this seems amatuerish for Del Rey.

Apr 13, 2012, 10:32am Top

I have now received my March win from Del Rey so obviously the Feb batch got sidetracked somehow if there are multiple non-receipts.

Apr 17, 2012, 4:13pm Top

Yep, I'm still waiting on Crucible of Gold, myself. Good to know I'm not alone!

Apr 18, 2012, 3:27pm Top

Still waiting on Eating to Loose.

Apr 23, 2012, 1:29pm Top

Has anyone received Crucible of Gold?

Apr 23, 2012, 3:28pm Top

Crucible of Gold is on its way (again, according to the publisher ...)

Apr 23, 2012, 11:43pm Top

re #115, thanks Jeremy

Apr 24, 2012, 7:24am Top

re #115: second time's the charm?

Apr 26, 2012, 10:40am Top

Anything new on The Replacement Wife from anyone who won it?

May 3, 2012, 9:02pm Top

Received The Replacement Wife today!
