So I came across a post the other day from Lila @ The Bookkeeper’s Secrets, where she discussed joining this challenge hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat that’s all about tackling that massive pile of ARCs. I think this is a fabulous idea so I’ve decided to join in on the fun. Not only is a fun idea to just bang through your ARC list but there’s also opportunities to win some amazing prizes. And come on, who doesn’t love winning free book swag?! All you have to do is make a post about joining the challenge and then add the link to Read.Sleep.Repeat’s list. All are welcome!
For those of you who aren’t sure what ARC stands for, it means Advanced Readers Copy. These are books that have been sent out by authors, publishing companies, etc. to different book reviewers in exchange for reviews to drum up interest in the book prior to it’s release date. It’s a fantastic marketing tool. I just appreciate all of the free books, haha! 😉
Now, my list of ARCs isn’t too bad but I do have quite a few pending requests that I should be hearing back from any day now. So I’ll just go ahead and add those to the list for now and hope that I get accepted for all of them! These are all ebook copies at the moment as well. I’d like to thank NetGalley for making it far too easy to just request book after book after book. I have a sickness and it can’t be cured!
