A few months back I had a small idea about a kind of sort of ARC Library. Where Bloggers could put there ARCs in a pool and other Bloggers could request to read them. I gave up on the idea because It would be difficult to make it work and there are so many great ARC tours out there but now I would really like to consider it again. It would be fun! Don’t you think? A few weeks ago I saw a post where someone was doing something like this but I cannot for the life of me remember what blog it was! Sorry! If you know what blog it was please tell me!
Here are my ideas so far: Bloggers would put there ARCs in a pool. They would always belong to this blogger though. Other bloggers could request the books they want to read. Maybe it would be on a first come first serve basis? I want it to be different than the ARC tours out there. If that’s possible.
What I want from you is: Do you think this could work? Do you think it’s too much like a ARC tour and there are already a lot of those? Do you have a better idea on how it could work and we could make it different? Please tell!! Also if this gets up and running I would probably need some help with it.
I think I might have found the site I was looking for Book Blogger Library. I don’t want Dahila and Kate to think I’m trying to copy their idea in any way. If I get this started it will definitely be a little different, I want to focus specifically on ARCs. Here is what I have come up with:
You become a member of this group. If you have ARCs that you would like to lend to other people you email me and I post it. You get to choose how many people get to read it and how long they get to keep it. Then the book is returned to you. Kinda like a ARC tour but you are in control! Do you think this would work?
In other news:
I got a job! My first day was yesterday! I am now a receptionist at the JC Penny Salon. And OMG is it easy! The hours are kinda crappy but I’ll deal with it. It’s only 12 hours a week which is great but it’s spread out over four days…..5-8:30 for three days and then 3-8:30 on Saturday’s. But I think the discount will make up for that! I get free haircuts!! And of course a store discount. I could also get my hair dyed for $5!! Too bad I’m 23 and never had my hair dyed or a perm or anything! And I don’t plan on changing that. This job is really wasted on me huh? I might get highlights….we’ll see….I think that once I’m not training I will be able to sneak a book or my Kindle in also!!
If you missed it earlier in the week, I also got my design blog up and running!! Use Your Imagination Designs
I think that’s all I have for this week. Please leave your thoughts on the ARC thing and have a great weekend!!
