As I finish up my ARCs, I usually want to keep them moving. I'd prefer to give them to someone who will read and review them, since I think it's the most fun part of receiving free books!

I have available, if anyone is interested, I, robot. I don't need to be compensated for postage, but I can't afford to send it outside of America, sorry!

(Thanks, lovemybooks for taking care of my wish for The Gargoyle!)

I want to read The Gargoyle if anyone has an extra copy. In exchange, I'm happy to swap another ARC (I've got a stack of them). If you've got an extra copy of The Gargoyle and are interested in an exchange, let me know, and I'll send you the list of what I've got so you can see if anything is appealing.

I'm a little bit late to this, but I've got copies of The White Mary and The Triumph of Deborah that I'd be interested in trading in for something else. I've been eying everyone's reviews of books such as The 19th Wife, The Lace Reader (don't worry, I stocked up on cucumber sandwiches just in case), The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher (which I was supposed to received but am beginning to accept is almost certainly lost in the mail) and a few others that I can't recall off-hand. I'm also dying to read The Wordy Shipmates, on the off chance that anyone who received it is interested in passing it along.

I might also have a few more to list soon, if I can A) finish them and B) bear to part ways with more books. I'm working on it. If anyone is interested in a trade, send over a comment. Hope springs eternal in the hearts and breasts of men, right?

I have a copy of The Organ Grinder and the Monkey (a Bostik request) that I'm supposed to review and it just isn't interesting to me. Normally I'd bite the bullet and make myself get through it, but while I was waiting for the book, the author sent me a note saying to be patient and wait a little longer. In the meantime, he sent me a copy of his first book, Swap. I read and reviewed that (even though I didn't request it) and I just didn't care for it. The second book seems to be similar and I don't want to spend my reading time going through TWO books like that. On the other hand, the author's note was so nice & I also noticed that the second book came directly from Amazon with an invoice of over $20 that the author obviously paid. Rather than writing a bad review on something I know does not interest me, I'd like to offer it to anyone that wants to take the time to read it, write an honest review, and send a link to the author. I know that just because his books aren't my cup of tea doesn't mean that others on LT won't enjoy them. (After all, I wasn't crazy about Twilight or The Lace Reader and both are popular here.) If you'd like me to send you the book to review, please PM me. (US or Japan residents only, please.)

#165 julyso - go to the box where you list American Rust and click on the pencil to edit the book. When it shows the touchstone book, under American Steel,
you will see the word other, under the title, click on other and it will list other titles. When you find the one you want for American Rust, click on it and you will get the correct title for your touchstone then click on submit again and you are finished. Hope this helps for the future becuase you might have the wrong title come up again in the future and that is how you get the right title to post for the touchstone.

Hi, I'm looking to trade, and I've got the following books to trade:

Etta by Gerald Kolpan (an ER ARC I snagged for November but received two copies of by mistake--looks like it's going to be a big book. Description: "Debut author Gerald Kolpan brings to life the extraordinary story of one of the twentieth century's most beautiful, brave, and mysterious women--as it might have been lived. Next to nothing is known about the real Etta Place--where she came from, what her real name was, or what became of her after her legendary romance with the Sundance Kid. This spellbinding novel imagines that Etta is a Pliladelphia debutante whose father's death leaves her orphaned, bankrupt, and a target of the infamous Blank Hand mafia. She then fells west using an alias...")

Immortal by Traci Slatton (a finished paperback I received from a publisher. Description: In the magestic heart of Florence, a beautiful golden-haired boy is abandoned and subjected to cruelty beyond words. But Luca Bastardo is anything but an ordinary boy. Across two centuries of passion and intrigue, Luca will discover an astonishing gift--one that will lead him to embrace the ancient mysteries of alchemy and healing to become a trusted confidant to the powerful Medicis...even as he faces persecution from a sadistic cabal determined to wrest his secrets for themselves.")

The Fireman's Wife by Jack Riggs (an ER ARC I snagged for October. Description: "An unflinching look at motherhood, heroism, love and loss, and the unexpected consequences of our most essential human choices, from the award-winning author of When the Finch Rises.")

Freeman Walker by David Allan Cates (an ER ARC I snagged for September, I think. Description: As the age of seven a mulatto slave boy, Jimmy Gates, is freed by his owner-father, separated from his mother and everything he holds dear, and sent to England for an education. Four years later when his father drowns at sea, leaving him bereft, Jimmy is apprenticed to a London workhouse where he spends six difficult years making saddles, reading heroic novels to his companions, finding the comfort of prostitutes, and discovering the inspirational speeches of an Irish revolutionary. At eighteen, dreaming himself a warrior and a hero, he returns to the States hoping to rescue his mother.")
