Unreceived Books, Part 8
This is a continuation of the topic Unreceived Books, Part 7.
Join LibraryThing to post.
Thanks for starting this new thread for unreceived books.
I wanted to reiterate ~
A Tangled Weave by Michael Skeet as Not received (from the May 2019 batch).
I haven't seen Stone Soup Annual 2018 from the April 2019 batch show up in my mailbox yet.
Haven't seen one of my June wins, God Just Wanted to Play Golf, which I was really looking forward to. Rats!
I see there are no reviews up yet, so perhaps none of them went out?
>3 mike1990: Thanks for the update. There was some turnover that led to a number of delinquent books, but I'm told that their backlog should have gone out—I'll follow up with them.
>5 LyndaInOregon: Since publishers have 8 weeks to send out books, June titles aren't really late just yet. That said, that one's an ebook, so do be sure to check your spam folder.
>2 SandyAMcPherson: Yesterday, I finally received this e-book. There was an apology from Five Rivers, about having missed distributing the book. Yay - will read and review asap.
I am still waiting for Grilled Cheese and Goblins: Adventures of a Supernatural Food Inspector from last August and Memory's Exile from May 2017 (!) but I think they are lost forever, even if they are ebooks :-(
I never received Falter by Bill McKibben from the January batch. Or Archeology from Space from the April batch... Or Inland from May...I won’t worry about June win yet.
I don’t know what to do about this issue. I did get the July win and the February one. So I know my information is correct!
>14 nancyadair: You're not the only one waiting on Inland. I just sent out reminders to publishers of May's late books earlier this week, so that one will hopefully be on its way soon!
Thanks! It is the Barnes and Noble Book Club pick for September and I go to the club...hope it comes in time...
I did not receive A Year in Her Life from the June batch. It was an ebook but I didn’t see it in my spam folders either.
Still awaiting three of the four I’ve won this year:
Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out? by Bill McKibben (January)
Entertaining Between Worlds: Béla Pásztor (1895-1966) and His Era by Anna Szalai (February)
Terror in the Shadows Vol. 3 by Scare Street e-book (June)
It’s becoming difficult to maintain enthusiasm for the Early Reviewer program when it seems increasingly likely that the books will never arrive.
I've not received One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir in Essays by Carla Rachel Sameth from the June 2019 batch. It was an ebook, but I've been checking my spam folder regularly and it's not gone in there. I've have got all the other books I've requested, and get LT emails, so I know my details are all correct.
>7 SandyAMcPherson:, Update...
I finally posted my review of A Tangled Weave tonight. My copy seems to be the only one on LT, which is very strange. It was from the May batch (2019) of Early Reviewers, and yes, it did take ages to appear in my inbox (it's an e-book).
I loved the story BTW!
Still haven’t gotten Country by Michael Hughes, either. Same publisher, William Morrow, same problems
Still haven't received my book Country by Michael Hughes. It's the June batch offered by William Morrow. I'm so diasppointed. I really want to read this book.
I'm still waiting for...
Everything Happens for a Reason by Kate Bowler (June 2019 batch)
The Stone Soup Annual 2018 by Stone Soup Editors (April 2019 batch)
I have not received my copy of Alchemy by Rory Sutherland. I notice that a number of reviews of this book have appeared on LibraryThing already so suspect my copy may have been lost in the mail.
Still haven't received:
From Peasant Foods to Superfoods from the January batch
Shipwreck Island from the November, 2018 batch
My mistake. I was out of the country from late July to early September and apparently "Alchemy" arrived just before I left. I just found it in a stack of things I set aside to deal with when I got back. I have a couple of reviews to get out before I can turn to Alchemy but will post a review as soon as I can.
I received a copy of "Cold Warrier" which was offered in May. I did not request it and do not wish to read it. If someone requested a copy and did not receive it please send me your name and mailing address and I will send it to you.
In June I won God Just Wanted to Play Golf but I never received it. I contacted the publisher, and they told me that the author is no longer with them and so they aren't able to share his book.
That's no problem, actually, except that I must remember not to flag the book as received. Is it possible to do something about it?
Tatoosh - same! I received Cold Warrior (which I did not request and do not want to read), but had requested Proud Boys and the White Ethnostate (which I have not received). It's fine if I don't receive the latter, but would like to pass the former along to someone else who does want to read and review the ARC. I'm happy to pay for shipping on this.
I also have not received my ebook copy of A Year in Her Life by Alice Benson from the June 2019 batch.
