Question of the Week:
How do you handle unsolicited books that appear in your mailbox? Do you add them to your queue? Do you write to the sender and explain you didn't ask for the book and are not sure when you will be able to read and review the book? Or do you simply not read the book at all?
I add them to my queue only if it is a book I am interested in reading and if it is in the genres I read.
I normally do write back to the publisher or author and tell them that I am not sure when I can fit the book in, OR I tell them it is totally out of my reading genre and won't be able to read it. To me, that is the courteous thing to do.
If it keeps occurring, I ask the author or publisher to please check with me before sending unsolicited books so it saves them money on postage.
