ARC Question

So, yesterday I received my first advance reader copy book from Librarything's Early Reviewer Program. I am really excited, I have been signing up for books for months and have never won one until now.

The book I got was "The Secret Holocaust Diaries: The Untold Story of Nonna Bannister". I can't wait to read it. I have "The Diary of Anne Frank" on my list to read in the next month or two. I think that I will read these books together. And do some sort of comparison and contrast.

But anyways, the question that I have is what do you do with the ARC copy once you have read it? Do you keep it and add it to you collection?

I really don't have the space for another book. My copy says for "promotional purposes only".

Would it be okay to give it away on my blog?

What do you do?


  1. You can hold a giveaway for the ARC. If you're in doubt, email or tweet the publisher and ask.

  2. If I don't want to keep an ARC, I give it away on my blog. I figure it gives the author/publisher even more coverage that way.
