So let me start this off with I had no idea about what an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) was this time last year. I was in the dark about so many things, one of which was booktube. LOL 😂 I know right, where have I been?!?
But, on a serious note I didn’t know about these resources. I barely knew about Goodreads until one day I happened upon a video that got my brain wheels turning. 🧐
I saw on some random video them watching a lady talking about books on YouTube and they discussed NetGalley and everything book lovers would need or like to know. Don’t ask me what video this was as my memory is shot and unfortunately this was a year ago. Sorry! 😥
Anyways, I decided to look up these things and when I discovered NetGalley OMG. My mind was blown away by what I was missing! So many e-book ARCs that are easily requested and you can even if you are lucky get auto-approved through publishers for ARC requests. Holy Canoly. Mind blown! 🤯
This has been an invaluable resource to me ever since then and I do a lot of my ARC reviews on this site in general. I wanted to spread the word just in case there are more if you out there that were hiding under a rock like me! 😁
It’s free to sign up and you only need to submit general information such as name and email address. Eventually you will want to provide your Kindle email so when you want to send the ARCs to your device, they actually get to you. 👌
I love NetGalley and find it to be such an invaluable resource to someone like me. I hope you will feel the same! 💖
