Changes to the TBR and review policy

This blog is fairly new and to a certain extent I’m still feeling my way around, finding what feels right and what I’m comfortable (or not) with. Today I gave my poor neglected To Be Read list a little love. I removed the books that had already been read and reviewed and added a some that had yet to see digital light. I also made a few changes in the process.

For one, I removed all ebooks. This is not to suggest that I am not reading them, I am. In fact I’m reading more than ever before. I finally got my greedy little hands on a Kindle. The problem is that I’ve been over zealous in my downloading. Does anyone else think the free ebook lists are addicting? I have so many now that I don’t know what to do with them all, figuratively speaking. They are all, of course, unproblematically stored in the one miraculously small device for safe keeping. But I’ve decided to stop listing them. I probably couldn’t keep it up anyway, so why try. Best to just acknowledge me limitations and move on. 

Secondly, in light of my new electronic acquisition I have started accepting ebooks for review. This comes with a caveat, however. As just noted, I now have tons of ebooks at my disposal. I have created a collection just for books provided for review so that they won’t get lost in the imaginary literary landslide, but any ebook I accept will have a lot of competition for my attention. Know this before you email me and don’t expect it read quickly. Physical books are still my preferred reading method and will still probably get read first. It’s nice to have options though.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one. I love my new ereader, I really do, but it’s hard to beat the familiarity of an actual book.

    If I submit an e-book for review, and happen to do a print run of the same book later on this year, can I “upgrade” my submission from e-book to paper at that point ?

      Yeah, I think I’d be fine with that. But if it is one of the latter ones in the series I would want at least an ecopy of the previous so I could read them all. It’s really disjointing to pick up in the middle of a story, don’t ya think?

    I understand completely about picking up in the middle. I will be in touch with you soon.

    Thank you for bringing that Goodreads group, “Connecting Readers and Writers”. I joined a GR group long ago about ancient and medieval surgery, and I completely failed to participate. This time I’m going to keep with it!
