Review Copy Clean-Up: Challenge 1--Show Off Your Pile


Okay, people, prepare yourself for the horror that is extreme review copy backlog! I'm going to have three separate lists for you.  Books for review for tours this month (I'm not including any for later months, as this is a March event), the never ending hard copy to-be-reviewed pile, and the impossibly long list of to-be-reviewed eBooks.  It's quite a nightmare.  I probably should have posted this on my horror blog.  It would have fit right in over there.  *L*  Now I know there is no way I will get through all of these this month, but having them listed down here (and I'm going to create a page with a list here on the blog so I can cross them off as I go) perhaps shall light ye ole fire under me derriere (my attempt at medieval speak) because let's face it, if getting behind on review books was a punishable offense in the middle ages, I would be facing the executioner's block, noose, pyre...you can choose my imaginary punishment.  ;O)  Oh, the horror....

Hey, it's only a bit over 40.  On one girl's blog, she said she had over 80 so I guess I'm not the worst...but I'm pretty darn close!

How about you?  Is your review copy pile as ridiculous as mine?

Happy reading!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. You are far braver than I! I don't think I would go so far as listing the review books I have!

  2. I have about the same amount of books as you do waiting for reviews. It's very scary!

  3. DOn't feel bad, I think you have a lot of company in this area. I also have an embarrassing amount and have made peace with the fact, I'll never read many of them as they just don't appeal to me.
