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.)
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!)
