This month is my first blogoversary and I have been thinking a lot about the past year.
Getting started as a book blogger is hard -- finding a routine, all that tech stuff, what the heck is a meme, anyway?
Getting hold of books to review can also be a challenge. No one sends ARCs to a brand-new blogger. NetGalley asks for stats. Some libraries have amazing YA collections, but others don't.
I was lucky when I was starting out -- a couple of bloggers generously shared their overflow of ARCs with me. While I'm in no way a "big" blogger and have only just requested my first physical ARC, I do have a bunch YA ARCs and finished copies that I'd love to share with other bloggers.
If you're a U.S. blogger who is trying to get your blog off the ground and struggling to find books to review, I'd love to send you something -- no cost to you and no strings attached. If the book you receive is an ARC, it would be great if you could review it on your blog. But I'm not going to check up on you :)
Here's how it will work. If you're interested in being on my RAK list, please fill out the Google Doc. It asks for your email, the URL of your blog, and what you like to read. I'll email out a list of what I have and you can email me back if you are interested.
So sorry that I can't make this international. I can mail a book within the US for under $3 using Media Mail, while it costs $12 to $20 to send a book internationally. But most of my giveaways are open internationally!
10/13/12 UPDATE: I got a bunch of responses and I will get to everyone! Sending out four books today :) After I get this round of books sent out, I'll put up another post and anyone -- returning or new -- can sign up again. If you don't want to miss it, you can subscribe by GFC, RSS or email.
