[ARC August] – 2017 Sign Up

ARC August is the yearly read-a-thon where you try to tackle as many advance readers copies as possible during August. The event is hosted by Octavia and Shelly (at) Read, Sleep, Repeat.

Initial Thoughts:

Praise be that I have the opportunity of reading several highly anticipated Fall 2017 releases. There is no rhythm or rhyme as to what I will read but I do have more favourable choices in the lot.

As always here are the rules:

    • Any Advanced Reading Copy counts as part of this reading challenge; your backlist books count
    • No blog necessary to participate, but you’ll need to include some form of social media as part of your sign up
    • Use the #ARCAugust on social media to check-in

Twitter Chat

  • We will be hosting TWO twitter chats one on August 7th and one August 28th. Both chats will start at 8pm EST and of course we’ll be using our #ARCAugust tag.
