Robert Strupp | 7 comments Going to try for reading 6 'new releases,' although some may be 2017 since at my Barnes & Noble Café & Lending Library it's sometimes difficult, I mean, always difficult find the new releases.


message 8: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany Marin (tiffers919) | 59 comments Do the books I’m reviewing count as new releases ? All of them are due to be released this year.

Jenny Clark | 1510 comments Mod
Tiffany, yes they would count since they are due to be released this year. I wolkd say if you have any due even for next year they should count too, but Renee woukd be the final judge on that.

I can see how that could happen - they are very opposite goals, Tiffany!

I’m sorry, I wasn’t ignoring you but I didn’t get a notification that you had replied, so I just saw this. Yes, they’re very much opposite goals. I’m thinking about starting to alternate, like read one ARC, and then one from my TBR list.
