In Which I Act Totally Nerdy

Okay, so I know I’m really showing my lame, “just started book blogging LOLZ” self here, but please bear with me…

I got my first ARC EVER in the mail today! I had no idea it was coming. In fact, I thought it was one of my recent book wins from Fizzy Thoughts or Musings of a Bookish Kitty. (Also my first book blog wins. March is a good month for me, apparently.)

Book Kiwi approves

I know seasoned book bloggers get more ARCs than they know what to do with, but for me, this was a huge, awesome surprise. Like most people, I didn’t start this blog to get ARCs–but it sure is nice to…hmm, feel validated, I guess? Solicited for my admittedly unprofessional opinion? I’m probably not explaining myself as well as I could, but it’s really sunny and warm out in NYC, it’s almost time for lunch, I’m sitting at my desk not wearing any shoes, and I just got an ARC!

(And in case you’re wondering, the ARC is The Lonely Polygamist, by Brady Udall. Won this through LibraryThing Early Reviewers!)

    Be as excited as you want! I’ve never received an ARC and don’t believe I ever will… but that’s OK. I like choosing my own books 🙂 Thanks for your comment earlier and it’s nice to discover a new book blog.
