Discussion Post: ARCs vs Finished Copies

 

I apologize now if I ramble with this one.  It was just something I was thinking about and wanted to see what others thought.

 

What do you think about reading ARCs? 

 

Do you ever feel pressure to read ARCs?  Either from publishers or other bloggers?

Signing Up For ARC August #ARCAugust

 

arc-august-2019

 

As you can see by the banner, this challenge is being hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat.  I had joined in on this right after I started blogging, but forgot to do it last August.  I always have a ton of ARCs to read, so this is perfect.

July 2019 Wrap Up

 

I had quite a few things going on in July, so I’m kind of surprised I finished as many books as I did.  I definitely found some new favorites, too.

Top Ten Tuesday 7/30/19

 

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.   You can find each week’s topic on her site.

 

This week was a freebie and I didn’t plan anything out.  But I decided to try something at the last minute.  I won’t have details for the books because I didn’t schedule this ahead of time.

 

I’m going with Top Ten ARCs I still need to read.  These are ones I already have even though I’ll get more before the year is over.

ARC Check In

 

My husband recently helped me set up a system to track my arcs better.  It’s been great so far and I wanted to share how I’m doing.

 

This does show me how many arcs I have for September and October.  I had no idea there were so many!  I’m hoping this system will help me with requesting less, too.  I’ll have to pay better attention to dates.

Half Year TBR Update

 

This is the first year I’ve done a yearly TBR POST.  Since we are halfway through the year, I thought I would see how I’m doing.  I’m horrible with sticking to a TBR being a mood reader, but I’m actually not doing too bad.

June 2019 Wrap Up

 

I am so happy with my June reading.  I know I read more because of my hand/tendon issues, so I wasn’t able to type online as much.  But I’m really surprised to see how much that helped.  I’m going to try to make a goal of reading an extra hour a day at least a few days a week now.
