This thread is now open for you to join GROUP 109 by adding your GR (not Amazon) book link. We have 10 places – I’ll add your name as you sign in. We’ll aim to get started in just a few weeks so once you’ve signed in watch for a message that we’re ready to start.

When you add your goodreads book and author links it not only indicates you want to join the group – it indicates you AGREE that you are WILLING TO READ AND REVIEW ANY ALLOCATED BOOK within the set 12 week limit.

This is a ‘clean’ group i.e. absolutely NO explicit sex, NO violence. If you enter your book (fiction or non-fiction) in this group and it contravenes the ‘clean’ criteria, the other members will be able to provide evidence of the contravention to the group moderator, in the form of the offending passage(s) and if the group moderator agrees there has been a contravention the members will not be penalised for not giving a review. The contravening member will still be expected to give their 4 reviews.
There is no genre filtering.
Allocation is entirely random and there will NOT be any rearranging of the listing to accommodate genre preference. The ONLY circumstance in which you may duck out of giving a review is if YOU provide a stand-in reviewer.

Let’s be honest here – we don’t all like the same things but we all want reviews. The only way this group can function is if we trust each other to behave honourably. And it IS perfectly possible to give a fair-minded review of a text that does not coincide with our normal choice of reading matter. If you need a few hints/tips, please see this thread:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Make sure you have an author profile set up before you join and that your book is available for sale on amazon (not pre-0rder).

Please let me know as you sign up if you have been reviewed by, or have reviewed another author in the group. It is permissible to review an author more than once if a different book is available, but reciprocal reviews within the group are strictly prohibited.

Your group moderator will be
Noorilhuda

Slapped wrist for you Stjepan, you didn't say you've reviewed Loralee already.
Luckily she has other books you can read.

Please remember the commitment you are making to your fellow group members. If you pull out after the start date for any reason it is the other members who will be faced with the problem of finding a replacement, or missing out on reviews, through no fault of their own. Please don’t ask the moderators to chase after replacements as we just don’t have the time.

It is the responsibility of the author to get their book to their reviewer in a format the reviewer can manage. Everyone must be able to accept PDF. There are no set dates for the start of each round. You can each work at your own pace, within the limits of the round deadlines.

When you have posted your reviews, please post the three links to your reviews in this thread.

All reviews must be posted to GR, Amazon .com and Amazon.co.uk.

Postings to any other sites are by agreement by both author and reviewer.

If I’ve missed something that results in you being asked to review someone who has already reviewed you, please let me know asap.

To exchange book files, my advice is to use PM to give email addresses to each other (save the chance of spammers getting your addies from this open forum). Happy reviewing, everyone :)

Noorilhuda | 524 comments Thanks Margaret.

@ Mary T Kincaid, Kathryn Harrison, Angelique Bochnak - have you been contacted by Tara yet?

@ Laura, don't worry, have sent Tara a msg too - people do lose track especially around holidays! Like Loralee mentioned, you can start with any book - the only requirement is that you finish all 4 by the group deadline.


message 48: by A.M. (new)

A.M. Bochnak (ambochnak) | 9 comments I have received Tara's book. She sent it to me early last week. She was very responsive to me so I would agree with Noorilhuda, it's probably the holidays.
