Bloggers! Readers! Writers! Book and canine lovers of all ages!

Your attention please!

Kimber here. Cuz Mom is going a little bit crazy. Well. I guess I should say crazier than usual. But it’s a good kind of crazy. The smiley kind if ya know what I mean.

Here’s the doggone lowdown on Pages & Paws:

We’re overwhelmed. Requests for book reviews have been flooding in like a tsunami. We love it! But we just can’t keep up.

Also, in case you’re wonderin’ – and even in you’re not – we hereby declare that we officially DETEST WordPress’s “Gutenberg” Block Editor. P.U.! Gag me with cat nip!

Wait. Where was I?

Oh yeah. Temporary closures to book review requests.

Mom and I, we read every single email. Personally. We try to respond to every request for a book review. Cuz we know how hard you author humans work. How much time and effort you put into writing your magnum opus. (Mom’s word. I have no idea what that is. But it sounds good. Can I eat it?)

For more, see: Kimber’s 8 Book Review Rules.

But we’re inundated. (Also Mom’s word. Another smiley kind of thing.) We get scores of requests for book reviews every day. We accept about half. Even so, we’re struggling to keep up.

So if you’ve contacted us to request a book review recently and haven’t heard back, it’s not cuz we’re hidin’. Or out chasin’ the cat. (At least one of us isn’t.) We’re just trying to catch our breath and keep our heads above review request waters. Okay?

So thanks for contacting us. We love hearing from you and will do our barkworthy best to keep up! But…

Temporary Closure to New Review Requests

To be fair to the huge stack of waiting-to-be-read books already in our review pipeline, please be advised that:

We are currently closed to book reviews.

We will reopen the queue on June 1.

Hopefully we’ll be caught up by then, at which time we will re-open our review request queue.

In the meantime, thanks for your patience. Keep those cards and letters coming and Keep Reading!
