This Weeks Topic/Question
April 10th - 16th - Have you ever received a bound galley from a publisher for review? What did you think about it? Were you surprised at anything? (submitted by Elizabeth)
I've received bound galleys (ARC's) from publishers for review. At the time I was thrilled that I was getting a book in the mail from a publisher and/or an author. I was so excited and I treated it like it was a special present from a close relative. But now I am not so thrilled to get them. I have too many books now to keep up with and there are so many out there that I want to buy. So I have been in the business of giving them away to people who will read them and review them. There are just so many out there, what's a girl to do?
But I do miss a good cover and I miss reading the synopsis on the book. Those are the two things that draw me into a book. So when one shows up missing those two things I am so not interested in reading the book.
What about you?
