None for me this month too.

Hey I am still new to this so I am learning how it works. I won an Ebook and then a paperback book. How long does it take to receive the paperback book usually?
Also how long do I have until I need to review the Ebook I receive?

Thank you!

I'm getting Poppy Gee's Vanishing Falls. Thank you!

lkemeny1, I've had good luck getting my paperback wins here within a week or so, but on other sites I'm on, there's a significant delay in physical book shipping with a bunch of publishers at the moment due to covid issues.

maig 6, 2020, 11:10am

>16 lkemeny1: It varies, but I usually get paperbacks in 2 - 4 weeks, though a book is not considered "late" by LT unless two months have passed. However, with the slowdown in delivery of non-essential packages due to the pandemic, I'm expecting it to take somewhat longer this time.

>7 browner56:

Same for me -- I've followed Temple's articles on LitHub and especially love her "literary lists". Curious to see if any of that works its way into her novel.

General question, but shall we assume that the post is pretty slowed up with COVID19 precautions right now?

maig 13, 2020, 5:02pm

I won a copy of The Psychic Soviet. It arrived today and is blank inside. I double-checked to make sure this wasn't suppose to be some sort of experiment or prank on the part of the writer/publisher. I can't tell.

Editat: maig 13, 2020, 8:54pm

My copy of A Reckless Love arrived by mail today. Pretty good in the current situation.

>23 minacee:

Hilarious, Cold War shenanigans continue.

But I presume unintentionally so. Have you tried treating the pages with lemon juice and carefully holding a lit candle?!

maig 14, 2020, 2:16pm

>23 minacee: The edition you would be reviewing hasn't come out officially yet, so it's possible that there is some kind of printing foul-up, but I hunted around the web a little and was able to confirm that the original edition from 2014 did have real content, and was printed as spiral bound book with a pink plastic cover sized to fit in a shirt pocket.

Was the blank book spiral bound? (Supposedly the little pink book was intended to call to mind Chairman Mao's "Little Red Book".) Just curious. I have no idea if it is supposed to be or not.

maig 14, 2020, 6:18pm

I won Phantom's Curse and Great American Deception. Has anyone received theirs yet? I'm curious (and worried I bit off more than I can chew with two books!)

maig 15, 2020, 9:17am

The copy I received was not spiral-bound. It definitely is pocket -sized with the "Little Red Book" vibe to this edition. I agree with you in thinking this was a printing foul-up. I did similar digging around and did come to conclusion it was to have real content like the 2014.

maig 15, 2020, 11:16am

>29 minacee: Perhaps you should mention this to katemcangus. She can contact the publisher and get it straightened out.

I used to work for a printer and I am surprised that blank sheets made it all the way through the binding process. Very odd. At least you can use it as a journal.

maig 15, 2020, 8:09pm

Has anyone received the ebook Unplugged by Joe Barrett? I thought I received an email today with the book attached, but when I checked my email later, it wasn't there anymore.

I may have misread the email. I have an email for another book (The Cooperating Witness) that uses the word "unproofed," so maybe I misread that as Unplugged.

maig 16, 2020, 4:15am

Got my "Cockroach" book today. Arrived this morning.

maig 17, 2020, 9:55am

I'm delighted that I won Little Wonder: The Fabulous Story of Lottie Dod, the World’s First Female Sports Superstar by Sasha Abramsky... and also pleased to report it already arrived via USPS Media Mail. Thank you!

maig 19, 2020, 1:45pm

OK, now I've definitely received Unplugged, through an email that arrived this morning.

maig 22, 2020, 4:24am

I won these two books:
Carnal Knowledge by Tamayo, Rachael
The Loveable Resident by Faderan, Mary
I am so excited. I have not received my books yet. I will keep you updated

maig 22, 2020, 4:26am

I won this book as well, have you received your book yet?

maig 26, 2020, 11:49am

Happy to have won Great American Deception & nearly finished it.

maig 28, 2020, 11:12am

I also won Vanishing Falls, which seems like it will be a great thriller (though I was really holding out hope for David Mitchell's Utopia Avenue)! Excited to dive into this one, I have a good feeling it will be a pageturner. Have you received your copy yet? I suspect there will be significant shipping delays due to the pandemic, but I seen some people have already begun receiving their books.

juny 9, 2020, 2:51pm

Took a while. Post office is backed up (and it looks like this had to come across the border) due to COVID.

Anyway, my April win arrived yesterday or the day before.
These Nameless Things by Shawn Smucker

juny 22, 2020, 9:12pm

I won and received The Iceman Kills by Steven H. Smith, which I just finished and LOVED! I will be posting a review to various sites shortly. I also won Smoke and Ritual by Melissa Sercia, which I'm starting tonight.

juny 23, 2020, 5:56pm

I won The Unsuitable: A Novel - just wondering if anyone has received it?

juny 28, 2020, 10:57pm

I won Recipe for Persuasion but haven't received it yet. I haven't had any big delays with mail. Anyone else received their copy yet?

juny 29, 2020, 12:02am

I won The Lightness by Emily Temple from the April batch, but it has not arrived yet. That’s too bad because I was really looking forward to reading this one.

juny 30, 2020, 12:32pm

I won Deceit and Other Possibilities audio form the April batch.

Delays in mail understandable, but I hope I see it soon. I've already received and reviewed my May win so really looking forward to this one!

AMAZING!!!!! Since there is not a Books Received from April thread, I'll put it here. I had been promised a copy of Utopia Avenue, which I was mad to have. It never appeared until today!!!!! Not only did it appear, but Penguin sent a first edition hardcover signed by David Mitchell. I am thrilled beyond saying.

Method of Delivery: USPS
Sent from: NYC
Sent to: Southeastern NC
Packaging method: cardboard mailer

Thank you, Early Reviewers!!!! Most especially, thank you, Kate.

I just got mine too, just came here to gush about the beautiful *signed* hardcover! Wow!

set. 17, 2020, 1:28am

>47 LizzieD: & >48 albanyhill: I'm feeling a little left out: I got mine today, but it wasn't signed and it was slightly warped and the corners scuffed up from being shoved into a mailer that was quite big enough.
