    I would really love to join but I’m not very active for accepting ARC this year since I’m in the process of cleaning my TBR first. But I still have I think 3 ARCs that I haven’t read yet. I’m not very active but if I’ll like the book that was offered to me, I might accept. Can I still join?

    I don’t have a problem with reading my ARCs, it’s reviewing them that I’m struggling with. Maybe I’ll join this and challenge myself to catch up on reviewing them. I’ll probably fail but I should at least try.

    Oh I seriously need to join this challenge. I’ve been trying to stick to the reading schedule that I have but the age old ARCs that are sitting on my kindle and bookshelves are crying out to me to be read/listened to and reviewed. So against my moody reading feelings I’m making it my goal to knock off as many old ARCs as I can.

    I would love to join! I’m in Atlanta for the RT Convention the first week of May, but should be able to get through a few!

    I’m definitely ready to read some ARCs. I have 4 that I received recently that need attention, along with a number of older ones that I’ll have to dig out from under beds and other book piles if I finish the first four.
