Follow Friday (42)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

This week's question:

What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?

For one, I didn't know that publishers sent out advanced copies of books for review so far in advance. And I definitely didn't know they sent out copies to people like us, regular, everyday people who just like to talk about books online. That's crazy, right? I thought review books went out to serious and highly respected book reviewers and publications only!

Every day I feel so lucky to be a part of the book blogging community! 

What have you learned about the book publishing industry?

  2. I know an author so I knew of ARC's but I was nervous about them, like I would get in trouble if they caught me with one. New follower PageGirlsPageofBookReviews

  3. I did not know about ARCs. I remember when I was starting to blog again this past May, I was wondering what ARC stood for, as everyone else was saying it a lot lol

    Old Follower!
    Happy Holidays! :)

  4. This seems to be similar to other blogs that I've read :) I was exactly the same. I've yet to pluck up the courage to go beyond Net Galley haha.

  5. ARC's and review copies was one of the first things I learned and it still amazes me :)


  6. It's great to get the arc copies.

  7. I knew publishers sent out review copies to libraries and book reviewers journals, but had no idea that they sent them out to bloggers either. It is awesome!

  8. I didn't know that about ARCs either. Makes it so cool.
