Early last month, I was lying in bed and looking at my tottering pile of ARCs by my bed, and I felt sort of a panicky kind of feeling. So many books, so little time! Besides blogging here at Off The Book, I'm also a book publicist - so often I feel like I'm scrambling to write about books all day. Not that I'm complaining - life is awesome. :)
So when I heard about the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge, I decided to take part this year. Here are the rules:
- Link-up and add button to your blog (check!)
- Arc must be read between May 1st and May 31st, 2014
- Challenge starts and ends at midnight in your local time zone
- All ARCS/finished copies that were provided by publisher/author are eligible. They can be in any format (eBook, physical, audio)
- Post start up post with goals.(can be posted during event)
- Tweet using hashtag #CleanSweepARC
- You do not have to post review on blog during the month of May. Just provide a link to Goodreads showing read May 1 to 31st with a two sentence review.
- Twitter Party Wednesday May 14th 7pm (EST) #CleanSweepARC
- Participate in challenges
- The Participant Giveaway will include entries for each linked book read, posting about challenge, start up/results post (can be combined), having button on your sidebar, participation in Twitter party, entering challenges and for following hosts.
- Grand Prize- One winner will receive a new release of their choice (can be audible, novel or gift card) valued at up to 20.00 US dollars. Open internationally.
- Challenge Schedule and entry form will post on May 1st and participant giveaway will close on June 3 at 11:59 (CST)
My goal is to finish ALL of the ARCs & finished copies on my list this month, since I won't be requesting any more until the challenge is done.
