    I don`t understand why the old format for pre-pub alert is no longer easily accessible.
    I knew that twice each month there would be a list of new books with a short blurb
    presented (usually around the first and fifteenth of each month). I was able to find
    interesting new authors and the latest publications by my favorite writers.
    Help!!!! Is there some way I can still obtain this information? Right now, I found a
    list for Nov.,2011. But try as I might, I couldn`t get a list for Dec., Jan. or Feb.
    I would love to avoid this problem and not miss out on books I know I`d love.
    Please advise me,
    Bea Schachter
