For the first time in a long time I didn't win from January's batch. No big deal since when I started entering in August 2016 to December of 2019, I've won every month except for 4. That's a pretty good record if I say so myself so I'm not upset. I have plenty of books to read anyway.

To all who have won, Congrats and enjoy.

I'm excited to get the chance to learn about Julia Sorell Arnold in An Unconventional Wife: The Life of Julia Sorell Arnold .

I have a general question though: Does anyone know if the 90 days to review a book starts counting down from the day requests are cut off? Or the day you're notified of the win?

>2 Carmen.et.Error: I think it's 60 days from when you mark the book received.

Hopefully Mr. Nobody arrives later rather than sooner as I just got a stack of library books. But it doesn't matter, really.

Thank you, Taphophile! (Not sure how to tag you)

I'm looking forward to reading The Traitor's Pawn by Lisa Harris.

>3 Taphophile13:

Well, no. Otherwise, you could just never mark the book received and have forever to review the book!

The time starts when you win the book. After 90 days from when you won the book, a failure to write a review may be counted against you. See https://wiki.librarything.com/index.php/HelpThing:Er/List

I know what the ER FAQ says, but my question was more when the start of the 90 days was; when the deadline is hit for requesting the titles? Or when the reviewers are notified what they've won?

Does that make sense?

I snagged two ebooks: SQL Quick Start Guide and Silent Manifest. I've been doing better since I started requesting ebooks as well as print.

Gen 31, 2020, 9:09pm

It would be when you were notified. It wouldn't make sense for it to be the deadline for requesting the titles, as the winners wouldn't be chosen yet.

All right, thank you! Good to know!

Poo. Two months with no book. I have gotten some good ones though and it's not something I was crazy about so I'll get over it. I promised myself I'd read more of my own unread stuff as well. ;)

Happy to have won 2 books!

I won an audio book--Trouble in Mind (touchstone not linking to correct book). Does anyone know how audio books are delivered? I assume it will be some kind of electronic file and not physical media. Just wondering.

Feb 4, 2020, 10:59am

>24 WildMaggie: I've won 3 audiobooks and two of them were physical box sets of CDs, the other was a snail mail letter containing a website and access code that I could use to download the files.

Feb 4, 2020, 11:44am

All of my audio wins have been CDs.

I have won my first e-book. I have been requesting for a while, but this was my first time requesting an e-book. I feel more confident with them, but I'm wondering how I get it. Do I get an email from the publisher? How long before I should receive it? I'm worried it will get lost in my filter. Any advice? Thanks!

Feb 6, 2020, 3:55am

>27 sdbookhound: It depends from the publisher. Some of them send directly the books, others ask you which version do you prefer (epub, mobi/azw or pdf), others send you a link to download the book.

Time needed to get it is variable too. It could be some days or more than a month (and sometimes the book was never sent)

Feb 8, 2020, 3:28pm

Ok, thanks! I'll just keep an eye out.
