It is very frustrating.
I don’t want to purchase the books in case they do arrive.
(ETA: this is how it worked a long time ago, my assumption is that this hasn't changed!)
Have you updated your page? Not sure if it matters much, but every once in a while I will go and click the "I still haven't received this book" link to update the date.
I want to say it's now kristilabrie that is handling this problem, but again, she has more on her plate so may take longer to respond...
I'm handling Early Reviewers from here on out. I'm planning on digging into missing ER books tomorrow, and I'll be sure to visit this thread and hopefully update it as I work. Thanks for keeping us updated!
I have one from July 2018 that I won that and was actually my first win, but never received. A Phone Call with a Fish. It is a book that I still plan on adding to my library but when I do, I don't want it to show up as an ER win and thus the publisher getting credit for sending it. Although in my case mine probably got lost in the mail because other winners of that book from that batch got their copy.
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)
Has anyone received any of these?
One workaround, which is far from ideal, is to put a disclaimer at the top of your review that you did not, in fact, receive your ER copy.
(I had one from 2010 that never arrived - not just my copy, either, nobody got that one. I did eventually buy the book, but I didn't review it.)
Otherwise, good idea. I like it. Thanks!
