Announcement: Goodreads Bookswap


I've had a couple people ask me what I do with my ARCs after I read them since they're (supposedly) in high demand. Well, sometimes I pass them on to friends, or I do a giveaway, but I don't really get that many actual ARCs.

I did recently discover the very lovely Bookswap feature on Goodreads where users can post books they would like to give away and other users can request the books and pay a minimal shipping charge (similar to Paperbackswap and BookMooch but without credits). So, I've been posting my ARCs, as well as other books that I receive from various sources (either off my personal shelf, duplicates I ordered for a friend, from my aunt, etc.) over there. So, if you want to browse my shelf, here's the link.

So, that's the fate of my ARCs whether you were interested or not. :)

That is a really good idea. I recently read an article where people were actually selling their ARC on eBay.
I personally believe that if people are doing that, that there is a good chance that it will ruin it for the people who receive these books and read and use them the way they are supposed to.

Thanks for mentioning this Beth, as I have several ARCS I was going to donate to the library book sale but this sounds like a good idea.
