ARC August!

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Octavia at Read. Sleep. Repeat.!

Here are the details copied from Octavia's blog:
ARC August!

If you’re like me you are probably up to your ears in ARC’s and review request. Scratch that. If you’re like me then at this point there is a giant pool somewhere filled with all the ARC’s and review request you currently have. And I know what your saying…

“Octavia there isn’t enough hours in the day”

“Octavia I’m just not in the historical-paranormal-high-fantasy-fiction mood today”

“Octavia! I just want to be lazy today!!

I know this is what’s going through your mind because I say the same things! But today I’m giving you a chance to get over your excuses and make a dent in that giant ARC pile. So here’s the skinny on this challenge:

You: “Octavia how long will ARC August last?”

Me: “Umm…all of August. From the 1st – 31st.”

You: “Octavia what kind of ARC counts?”

Me: “That’s a better question! All ARC’s count. NetGalley’s, Edelweiss’s, physical copies, upcoming releases….past due releases (yes I’m looking at you).
If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.
