This week, our question is inspired by all the group threads that are dedicated to finding the next great book to review.
In order review books on your blog - you've got to GET books!
Today's question: How do you get your books for reviewing? (Feel free to participate in the poll below, you can check more than one answer) Do you track them somehow (excel, database, etc), or just put them in a tbr (To Be Read for anyone that doesn't know) pile?
How Do You Obtain Your Review Books?
My Answer: As far as how I get my books, it is really a combination of everything except going to the library - my tbr pile is simply so big that there is no need to go to the library, and I really enjoy reading arcs, so the books aren't usually in the library yet.
I do request a few books via cold requests, but participate with WildCard Tours, Hachette promotional tours/giveaways and get a lot of new books from Shelf Awareness and Bostick. LOL - I've got some really great contacts but I don't seem to be organized enough to keep them all straight! That is a project I'll have to do in the near future.
As for how I track my tbr books, I'm trying to keep track of them in Excel, but actually might switch to an access database if I can figure out a few things.
Looking forward to reading everyone's answers!!
