Please do NOT sign up for any tours that you have been selected for at another site. Many sites have to do a random draw for participants and you are taking away the opportunity for someone to read the book.

Steps when receiving a book
:
1) Post that you received the book on the book's thread
2) E-mail starbooktours@gmail.com for the next address
3) Read the book (please move the book to the top of your reading pile)
4) Package up the book nicely and send with delivery confirmation
5) Post the delivery confirmation in the book's thread
6) Write a review and e-mail the review or link to the review to starbooktours@gmail.com

Update!

Saturday, June 5, 2010
I am preparing to mail out the first few books that I have listed below. I will add individuals on to tours while the book is being mailed around as long as the list stays manageable, so please sign up for any book that interests you!

When receiving or sending a book, please post in that book's thread. Many other tour sites use a chatbox feature, but I would like to try keeping all communication for a book in the thread for that book. This also means that if you would like to be REMOVED from a tour, you should comment in that book's thread.

If you know of someone else who attended BEA and is looking for a place to share their books, please have them contact me - there are a few popular BEA books that I will not be sharing from my collection on this site because I got them signed personally to me (sorry guys :\ )

Also please be aware that your reliability from other tour sites is very evident to me in many cases - do not think that signing up here when you have gotten too many strikes at another site will solve your problems. I am well aware of those individuals that do not send books out and I will not ruin the sharing for everyone else by letting you join tours here.

If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below - I am currently reading as many BEA books as I can this weekend so I can get them out to share with you!

You are doing such a wonderful job with the tours and I want to thank you for holding them in the first place (it's very kind of you)

I also wanted to know if there was any possible way that you could add Return to Paradise to the tours. I am really looking forward to this one but if you don't want to- I'll completely understand!

Thanks again

Angel - thank you for the nice comment :)

Morgan - My copy of Return to Paradise is signed so I'd prefer to not tour it, but I can try to find another copy!

Thank you for starting this site. I've enjoyed being on book tours in the past, and the way you've set everything up here looks like it'll work well. :-)
