Taking a break from the bookish training at work, as I am currently in my cozy hotel room in Chicago having spent the day acquiring Advance Reader Copies from book buzz sessions and indie publishers.. and resting up for more of the same tomorrow morning. And if the idea of having acquired 31 physical print books today with more to come tomorrow wasn't enough, I signed up for NetGalley this week while doing the latest week of bookish training at work (thank you, EarlyWord), and thanks to reading time in the air yesterday I've already reviewed one preview excerpt and have started to be approved for other digital galley copies.
Reading and writing about books - I am pretty sure 10-year-old me would be delighted to find out what she grows up to do.
I am going to need to be well organized to stay ahead of publication dates, though. One of my digital galley titles is being published next week, and four others are released later in February. I am itching to devise an organizing scheme, but as I'm not home there's only so much I can do.
The list for February, as of right now and subject to additions at any time:
The Highlander's Folly, Barbara Longley (2/3)
City of Savages, Lee Kelly (2/3)
The Glittering World, Robert Levy (2/10)
Seeker, Arwen Elys Dayton (2/10)
The Accidental Empress, Allison Pataki (2/17)
Finding Jake, Bryan Reardon (2/24)
Future Crimes, Marc Goodman (2/24)
Expect reviews soon.
