Book Blogger Hop - 2/28 - 3/6

 Question of the Week:

Have you stopped accepting books from either authors or publishers to try to catch up? If not, do you think you would ever do that?


My Answer:

I have cut down accepting books from both publishers and authors, but I don't think I will totally stop.  

It is too much fun getting new books in the mail and being able to read the ARC's or self-published books.  :)

What are your thoughts?

  2. I agree, I love getting something other than bills in the mail! And I've discovered authors I love, that I wouldn't necessarily have tried otherwise. Here's my answer

    Happy Hopping & have a great weekend :)

  5. My biggest problem is that the Indy authors have figured out what I like to read! So my answer is no-I haven't stopped accepting books-if I ever have a short tbr list it will be a miracle.

  6. I haven't had this as a problem yet, but I would definitely stop accepting books if they were piling up... but I confess I'd love to get a box of new books from a publisher - maybe someday :) Here's my response: http://reading2011.blogspot.com/2014/02/book-blogger-hop.html
    Great question!

  7. My answer straight away is totally NO. Now if I was reviewing just myself I might have to think otherwise as I am quite a slow reader but luckily hubbie reads and reviews to and he can finish a book in one night if its that good. We do only review books that we think we will enjoy though x

  8. I've also had to decline a few books for review. I just didn't have the time to read them.

  9. I agree, it is to much fun getting books in the mail and that's why I could never completely stop accepting them!

    I hope your mom is doing better!

  11. It is difficult to turn down books when you know you would like them, but you have to be realistic. If you don't have the time, you have to decline. :(

    THANKS for stopping, Monique.

  12. THANKS for stopping, Sharon.

    I definitely only read books I know I will like. Too many good books and so little time to do otherwise. :)
