As you can see, I get most of my books directly from the publisher and occasionally from authors. Unfortunately, as you can see, I’m not able to buy many books. I do buy them or ask that my family members buy them but they’re often books that I’ve already read from an ARC and want to support the author or books I won’t review (like 20th in some random series). If I cut out my ARCs, they would be less reviews but I’d still have a lot to review because I do get books from my library too.

**If I had done this in the first couple of months I started, it would look nothing like this. Only recently have I started getting this many books from publishers and I’ve been at this a year and half.

Wow. I’ve never gotten a book from a publisher or author. The closest is the book I won off Goodreads lately, and I haven’t read/reviewed it yet. I get nearly all my books from the library, or they were on my shelf already. In the last 20 I read, 5 were ones I’ve owned for a long time, 6 were ones I bought this summer, 6 were library books, and 1 I got for free at ALA (ARC). Interesting…

It was so nice for publishers/authors to offer you books to read and review, esp new ones ^^ I got most of mine from publishers/authors too. I wish I could buy more myself though. It feels great picking books from a bookstore.

Yeah, mine looked a lot differently when I started too!
