To request or not to request: how do you limit ARC requests?
I came back to it a couple of weeks ago because I really wanted to read The Last Neanderthal. I ended up just throwing a few extra books on there that I was interested in. I figured I'd only be approved for one (indie), and the traditional publishing houses would reject me outright. I was wrong. I went in requesting 4, expecting 1. I came out with 3. (Not to mention: I was just approved for an impulse request that I put in two weeks ago. EEK!)
This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it was definitely a wake up call. No, four TBR books is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but these are in addition to other books I own or want to borrow!
And the point of all that jumbled up mess up there?
There's not really. Since restarting this blog, I very much want to start utilizing ARCs again. I just need to find a balance that works.
