    I myself, don’t get arcs, but I love watching this challenge from the sidelines. From an author standpoint, we really appreciate it 🙂
    Happy reading everyone!

  2. Lorna

    I get ARC’s, but not near as many as most. So I keep pretty up to date-I think I have 4 to read right now. Good luck with your challenge!

  3. Stormi

    I will be signing up for this one when it gets closer to time and I know I will do better with this one than I am with the TBR pile one since I have so many ARC’s that are coming out I need to read I haven’t had a chance to read some older ones or a book I have on my TBR pile…lol. 🙂

  4. Genesis

    I want to sign up! I’ll be on a cruise from the 15th-22nd so I won’t participate in the chat but I know I’ll get some reading done 🙂 When do we exactly do a post of our goals? May 1? What else do we need to do exactly in terms of posts? I’m new at this so I don’t know much..or anything lol.

  5. Kay

    I should do this! I don’t have too many ARCs but it would feel good to get caught up because I have a feeling I will be getting a lot at BEA. lol I also would love to get some posts scheduled and I always love a readathon.

    YES! I am so doing this challenge as well! I started to panic when I thought it would be books published before May 1, so thankfully this challenge isn’t that. I have 16 arcs that come out in May alone. I NEED this challenge in my blogging life!
