How do you they have so many books every month? I mean here in Australia a paper back costs $10-$15, maybe even more, and don’t get me started on hard covers! I think as a book lover, I have this ingrained love for hard covers because when I do buy one I worship it and before I read it I stare at it for a VERY long time… Please tell me I’m not the only one in this boat.
Anyway, moving on.
Another point is: Your family and friends must be book lovers too or understand your love for reading and books.
You know how I got that point? You are given books as gifts for birthdays or just out of the blue! Not saying anything against my family and friends but they never buy me books… Without owing them money that is Deep breath<
Okay I’m calm.
This usually gets me 3 books maybe? If there’s a sale maybe four.
Then the final point: Advanced Readers Copy or ARCs.
ARCs are given to select people, often established book bloggers, who ask for ARCs before the official release of a book. So these people get to read the books before its out on bookstores. I AM JEALOUS! So jealous that I have probably become very jelly-like… ha ha (Yeah I can’t make jokes but feel free to laugh at my pathetic attempts.) I have been researching how to get these amazing ARCs and realised it is a scary process. You have to email the publishing company for an ARC and hope to every GOD, DEITY and SPIRIT out there in the universe to give you the ultimate privilege of holding within your hands the sacred ARC of a beautiful book. If your not religious then you just do your own thing, we don’t discriminate here. So far I’ve never heard or read more like about a person having to pay for an ARC but I could be wrong because I’m not an expert on the subject, only a mere amateur.
Now that you’ve heard about my struggles, you’re probably sick of me already. Well are you? No don’t answer that. Save me of a broken heart. Anyway, enough with the drama. I hope you enjoy this and maybe I’ll post again soon. Please ignore any, actually ALL the mistakes. I am not sane at the moment.
