Tuesday Things

Question: Were you aware of the Member Giveaways Program? Have you posted any books in the giveaway? If so, what are your thoughts on the program? Have you requested any books, and if so, did you win any?On another note - does anyone have any special requests for upcoming discussions??

I have seen the new Member Giveaway program on Library Thing and I have to admit that I have not requested nor offered any books yet. I think there are two reasons for that: 1. I have a zillion books that I have read and not reviewed yet, and I have another zillion books that I need to read and review, and 2. I have to admit that I wanted to sort of sit back and see how it works for a bit. I am not sure why I am hesitant since really Library Thing has absolutely never disappointed me in any way, so I am sure that it works perfectly well. I hope that some of you post about your experiences with this new program!

Future topics for discussion - Perhaps we could turn the focus to books that we have in Library Thing - favorite book cataloged, last book cataloged, least favorite book cataloged, etc. Or even more random - books that start with an L! Guess which book? Provide part of a review and let people guess what book? Good grief, difficult to come up with ideas. Thanks for always providing us with discussion topics.

I've checked out the program, but haven't used it either. It's pretty much for the same reason you haven't - too many of my own books to read and also reviews.

I threw caution to the wind and requested a few. Yes, I don't need them either....lol

Yes, I've got zillions, too. But that will never stop me from seeking more books! Especially free books.

I gave away a book using the Member Giveaways, and it worked very well. Everything went smoothly. I posted the book and when the giveaway ended the LT people left a comment in my profile with a link to the winner's information.

I also found out that I won a book last night from the member giveaways.

Maybe I'll reward myself by *requesting* a book after I get caught up with a few more reviews :)

Oh my goodness! I love your suggestions for future topics - they are great. :) I've been thinking that it might be fun to start getting a little more "personal" on the posts, which is exactly what you are suggesting.

Thanks for stopping by and participating in Thingers last week! I've got the post up for this week, we're taking a look at the new LT Memes. ~ Wendi
