I'm so excited to have won Perfect is Overrated! I was first introduced to Karen Bergreen months ago when I won Following Polly. It's been my favorite Early Reviewer book so far. I'm sure that Perfect is Overrated won't disappoint either!

Darwin's Ghosts by Rebecca Stott! I wanted only this book, and I wanted it enough that I knuckled down and wrote reviews for two ER books that had arrived in March.

Edited: Jun 26, 2012, 11:17am Top

Polo in Britain: A History by Horace A. Laffaye - really excited as I love this type of reference book. I wanted this one so much it's the only book I requested this month to avoid possibly winning a different book instead.

Jun 26, 2012, 11:27am Top

I snagged The Map of Lost Memories by Kim Fay. LT thinks I will love the book, even though LT's confidence level in that prediction is low. I expect them to be right -- by all accounts, I should love the book. Happy!

Jun 26, 2012, 11:27am Top

This is my first time winning a Early Reviewers book and I'll be getting: God Save the Queen by Kate Locke. So excited!!

The Demands by Mark Billingham. Love this series; glad my wait-time between books will be cut down, thanks to the ER program!

Jun 27, 2012, 1:21am Top

Like sangreal (>2 sangreal:), I am super excited to be receiving Grandad, There's a Head on the Beach, the second in a new series by Colin Cotterill, having recently devoured all the mysteries in his Dr. Siri series pretty much back-to-back and absolutely loved them. I've got the first in the new series, Killed at the Whim of a Hat on my bedside table, so I'll be ready to start Head on the Beach when it arrives.

Edited: Jun 27, 2012, 10:28am Top

I won North by 2000+ by H. A. Hargreaves. Looking forward to reading this, as I always enjoy a collection of short stories. Touchstone for this one doesn't work as well as most of the touchstones.

Jun 27, 2012, 10:56am Top

Now this should be great! Comic Books and the Cold War by Rafiel York.

Jun 27, 2012, 10:59am Top

I will be recieving Getting Over Mr. Right by Chrissie Manby. Looks like a fun and interesting read.

Jun 27, 2012, 12:35pm Top

Jun 27, 2012, 3:56pm Top

Another new reviewer here and I'll be receiving Rising Shadows by Ashley Townsend. Looks like a fun read! Looking forward to it. :)

Jun 28, 2012, 1:18pm Top

PolarisBeacon - it's on its way. Should be there by early next week at the latest. Enjoy! The folks at SDSHS Press

Jun 28, 2012, 6:54pm Top

#60 - Thank you - looking forward to reading it!

Jun 28, 2012, 7:56pm Top

I'm getting Jersey Joe Walcott: A Boxing Biography. In the 3 years (36 months) I' ve been a LibraryThing member, I've gotten 22 books. What's crazy it that I seem to have become an almost automatic "sports book reviewer," as 7 of those books are about sports figures and most of those books have come in the last 6-9 months or so.

It's crazy because, while I follow sports and enjoy books about sports and people in sports, I read way more than that. Not that I'm complaining, I've received a lot of good books.

Jun 29, 2012, 12:57pm Top

Lake Country by Sean Doolittle

Dennis Lehane raved about it, so that convinced me to read it. I hope he was honest so I believe him in the future.

Jun 30, 2012, 1:08pm Top
