Guess what?  I got invited to join the Vine review program.  That’s very exciting for me 🙂  For anyone wondering what the hell I’m talking about here are the details:

Amazon Vine™ is a program that enables a select group of Amazon customers to post opinions about new and pre-release items to help their fellow customers make educated purchase decisions. Customers are invited to become Amazon Vine™ Voices based on the trust they have earned in the Amazon community for writing accurate and insightful reviews. Amazon provides Amazon Vine™ members with free copies of products that have been submitted to the program by vendors. Amazon does not influence the opinions of Amazon Vine™ members, nor do we modify or edit their reviews.

Yippee!  I am now a “Vine Voice”.  Apparently you get two newsletters a month and you get to choose two items to review from each newsletter.  Since my invitation has come between newsletters it looks like I am choosing from what’s left of July’s newsletter first and then the August newsletters will be in a week or so.  I picked two books from what was there, kind of the best of the rest.  Hopefully the next selection will be more my speed.  The books were Sons of Thor (children’s) and Lennox (crime fiction).  They look ok but not anything I’m desperate to read, though you do need to review 75% of what you get so I will have to read them asap to be able to get anything else to review!
