    Thank you for organizing this! I have only 1 ARC for a blog tour, so the rest of this month I can concentrate on the ARCs from Netgalley (I can’t wait to get this list down – so I can request more lol). Good luck everyone!!

    really liking the motivation for not only reading the ARCs, it also got me doing 2 netgalley revws and all the att’d xtras for retail + blog + goodreads sites today – whew! HapPy AND relieved =))

    not sure if the widget recorded my 2nd ARC completed entry ?
    it didn’t add +1 to the previous total … not sure what / how to make sure it’s recording accurate totals for me – sorry ); ?

      They show including one for participating in Gin’s challenge. The way to test if you are unsure is to try adding another will say task already done etc.

    • kimbacaffeinate

      So glad we are motivating you Melissa! Good luck and congrats on finishing one today!

    • kimbacaffeinate

  6. Micky

    Quick question. I just found this challenge and I started clearing out my ARC shelves one or two weeks ago. Will I be able to include those in the challenge?

      Hi Micky, The giveaway widget will only allow you to add two books a day, but as long as they are arcs and read in May ..I have no problem with it. Good luck 🙂
