hi all,

i have been on library thing for a while, i guess, depending on whether you consider dec 2006 a while. i'm from new york, but i studied in the netherlands and moved to joburg in october of last year.

i am a member of the early reviewer group, and have enjoyed getting advanced reader copies (ARCs). now that i'm in south africa, there aren't any participating publishers. i was going to start petitioning and writing to plenty of publishing houses and see if they would be willing to give ARCs in exchange for reviews, etc., on this site or also for their own use. but before i do that, i thought i would ask the members of this group if there is any interest, or if i should just pursue this on a personal basis rather than pushing for books that would be available to all south africans in the program.

I've only just been alerted to the existence of this group! Can I still respond to your question? With a resounding, "Yes please!!" :)

I'd be very interested to know if you've had any success with SA publishers?

I joined the LT ER program but there are rarely any books available South Africans, so I've withdrawn...

Hi Moonstormer,
Not sure if you are still on here or not, but I wouldn't mind getting some reviews of the books I publish...

I think there are many Indie publishers who would like their books reviewed, but most are now e-books.
