Well, now I have done it. I finally signed up to Edelweiss. Because that is just what I need, more places to get awesome books from, right??
For some reason I thought I could not sign up because I am from Portugal but I guess that only drastically decreases my chances of actually grabbing the books I want to read so I figured, why not give it a try?
It seems that it is migrating from Edelweiss ‘classic’ to Edelweiss+, at https://www.edelweiss.plus
I never tried the old version but I can imagine this is more user-friendly than the previous.
At first I struggled with it but the help articles were very useful.
However, there are still several features I don’t know what they are for.
I still don’t get why, when I am trying to do a search, I don’t immediately get the option to only view titles available for request. I have to filter first by publisher or publishing date or format or whatnot.
So I am a bit confused about the site’s purpose. Obviously we get to request review copies, but what else is there to it?
Alas, I added some of my previous reviews and requested several titles – only 10, not bad huh?? I am really trying here.
I didn’t find many of the titles I got from Netgalley, though. I wonder what the criteria is to putting a book up.
Also, does it have a feedback rate like Netgalley? What exactly to the publishers use as criteria for accepting a request?
Do you use this site? I would love your opinion of it and any info/tips about it, really.
I have seen a Friend option there, I guess that means you could add me?
Looking forward to your comments!
