    Okay, once again you got me. I love Challenges that get me to do what I know needs done. Especially when it’s in the company of other book lovers and book bloggers. Count me in. And thanks for keeping book blogging fun with your Challenges.

    Well, I haven’t done all that well with Taking Control of my TBR but some books read is better than none, yeah? So I’ll do Clean Sweep in May because I have more ARCs than I know what to do with. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for offering up another challenge to get my reading piles under control!

    Just signed up! I decided to keep my goals modest – the number of ARCs I have to read in May, plus one. If I get more done, that’s icing on the cake! Thanks for hosting this, Kimba!

    I have a small question… Does books provided by authors or publisher in exchange for a review count or only ARC copies? I’m just not sure what books count…

    Thanks!

      Any copy whether finished or advanced arc count. They just need to be books or audios gifted or provided to you by publisher or author for review.
