I've added title to my only very slightly shorter hand written "to - read" shelf. My policy is to download the sample on Amazon and if I like what I've read I purchase the book. There are a lot of books on my list so don't be surprised if you don't hear anything for quite a while! Best of luck with seeking reviews - have you tried Rosie's Reviews and Readers Favourite?
