- Subscribe to Shelf Awareness. They send an email five days per week. Publishers often advertise their galleys there.
- Join Goodreads. This is a great place to keep track of books you want to read and review the books you have read. There are different groups you can join including groups where bloggers post about books that they are giving away for free. There is also place on Goodreads called First Reads. This is a place where publishers advertise galleys up for grabs. If you do get lucky and win a galley there, be sure to go back to Goodreads and post your review there as well as your blog.
- Join Library Thing and go to Early Reviewers. This is another place publishers advertise galleys up for grabs. If you do get lucky and win a galley there, be sure to go back to Library Thing and post your review there as well as your blog.
- You will most likely start getting emails from Bostick Communications. They somehow found me before I even added my email address to my profile. LOL! They offer review copies for mostly self-published books. If you don’t start receiving email from them and you want to, go to their contact page and let them know that you are interested.
- Hachette Books has several groups in Book Ning where you can get books for review and also sign up to host book giveaways on your blog. These groups include:
- There are also many other groups on Book Ning where you can get books. Be sure to browse through the various groups and join the ones that are of interest to you. Note, that coming up in July there are going to be some changes to Book Ning. At this time, it is un-known how this is going to effect the various groups.
Another website I love is West of Mars – Win a Book. They post a lot of the giveaways that other book bloggers host.
NetGalley is another great place to get ARCs. They come in the form of ebooks, so it is best to have an e-reader, unless you don’t mind reading off of a computer screen.
Please note that many of the above options are only open to people who live in North America. There are other places where international book bloggers can get ARCs. Since I live in North America, I just don’t know them.
