The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

Apparently I grabbed last week’s question from the 2022 Book Blogger Hop list. But that’s ok because I don’t think I was participating in this meme last February. No harm, no foul!
This Week’s Question
Do you use other sources for ARCs besides NetGalley? (Bonnie @ Bonnie Reads and Writes)
This will be a short answer. No, I say! Most of my ARCs are from NetGalley. Only recently did a publisher add me to their physical copy distribution list. (Which I was ecstatic about!) Those ARCs come directly from the publisher. But I request physical copies sparingly and only when I have a feeling I’d like to read them again. Otherwise I’m perfectly content with digital copies–saves space, of which I have none anymore! I’ve entered giveaways, some of which are ARCs. I won one ARC in this manner, which was awesome, but also isn’t something to rely on as a way to source ARCs.
