Paid-up WLUG members can use this page to request books that they would like to see the WlugLibrary acquire. Ideally, put the name of the book, the publisher and/or distributor, the ISBN, and your name for each request. Maybe check that the book you want isn't already in the WLUG Library Database.

Note: If you say you are "Interested" in a book in this list, then we expect you to at least help write a review of it if we acquire a free review copy of that book.

Priority will be given to books requested by multiple members, and to members who have no outstanding reviews :)

Requested Books

Please put any requests under the appropriate publisher.

Note: I'm not sure if we have sponsorship agreements with all of these publishers, but I think these books look like they might be interesting anyway. See the PublisherAgreements page for people who currently donate or offer review copies of books to WLUG members.
