Sean Wallace – Book Reviewer?

A while ago I signed up for LibraryThing‘s Early Reviewer program and each month I’ve been picking the books I would be willing to review if they sent them to me.

Here’s the deal: free books are good, right? LibraryThing has arranged deals with an ever-growing list of publishers that in exchange for free copies of books their community will write reviews. I suppose they probably sell it on their fancy algorithm that matches books to interested and ostensibly informed readers. I figure, hey free new books, sounds fun.

So this month I finally got chosen for one. It’s not my first choice, but if I write a review of it, even a one-liner, I’m more likely to score more free books in the future. It’s called Hedge Hunters: Hedge Fund Masters on the Rewards, the Risk, and the Reckoning, which is a mouthful, but I’m sure it’ll be at least slightly interesting. I think I got it because I have Den of Thieves in my library, which is about scandals on 1980’s wall street.
