I just want to stop and say thank you. Thank you all so much for believing and for loving this event as much as I do. It’s a very scary thing to come up with an idea you’re passionate about and then share it with people you’re unsure will like it. So thank you for your continued support in ARC August.

Ron Burgundy Love You

But back to our regularly scheduled program!  It’s that time of year when we look at all the ARCs we’ve acquired from Netgalley, Edelweiss, publishers, BEA, RWA, ALA and friends alike and try our damndest to make a dent in that teetering pile. The rules are simple. Any ARC, old or new, physical or ebook, tour or publisher provided. As long as it is an ARC it counts towards this challenge. You can be as optimistic about your goal (20 ARCs in August? SURE!) or laid back (eh..3) as you want! This challenge is solely for YOUR benefit. It’s your chance to clear your shelves and get those Netgalley ratios up!

Ok so when this post originally went up it was a tiered award plan. But since that was AGES ago and Shelly and I have changed our minds I want to update you all.

The new plan is to have ONE person win a stack of ARCs….these ARCs specifically,

PLEASE NOTE! THESE BOOKS ARE A US ONLY PRIZE. OUR INT WINNER WILL RECEIVE ONE TBD GIFT-CARD


Who’s excited?! I AM!!!!! ARC August is always my most productive month and I love watching my ratio increase. Sign ups will open July 1st and close July 31st. Each week a linky will go up where you can share your progress. At the end Shelly and I will confirm the books submitted so PLEASE review them somewhere. Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, Pinterest, your blog, Tumblr! If we are unable to confirm submittals you may be disqualified so PLEASE leave something. Even if it’s just a sentence or two.

Shelly and I will post our progress below and we can’t wait to see everyone’s goals and accomplishments!
