Hey Guys, I've already gotten an email from an anonymous blogger plus 2 comments that were somewhat snoddy. I didn't start this contest to make everyone mad. I started it because I wanted to share my love of reading with others! I just want to give the excitement and joy to others as I have had reading these, so please don't take it the wrong way that I hosted this contest. I didn't do it to offend anyone. I wanted to give everyone a chance to read these books that I was lucky enough to acquire. One comment said I asked publishers for ARCS and that was wrong of me. Let me clarify that, I have gotten about 10 books total from publishers!!! And that is only because there were books I really wanted to read. The rest of the ARCS I have gotten through various ways. I have gotten ALOT from Bookmooch and Paperbackswap. You can find me there giving away books as well.
The ARC's I read and really love, will be bought in hardcovers to put on my keeper shelf! My main source of books are from the internet (bookmooch, pbs, Amazon and Wal-Mart). No Borders or Barnes and Noble here so choices are limited! I've been reading for as long as I remember, from the days of Goosebumps to The Babysitters Club!
I have gotten alot of the arcs I own by 2 certain friends, I will refrain from mentioning their names or they will have loads of emails to answer. I have traded books, I have mooched books! I do not go to publishers very often! Granted, that it would be totally rad if they sent me books but I don't like to ask so when I do, its a huge thing for me!!
Also included is that a lot of the books aren't reviewed yet in the contest. They are scheduled posts, and haven't published yet. I've been super busy all summer and have been scheduling posts so each week it evens itself out. I am a college student and I took 4 classes this summer and have been extremely busy. The reviews will be posted, so stay tuned.
Sorry that this is rather long, I just kind of got sad when people were getting mad at me. I just wanted to share all my books with you fellow bookies.........
