Have I Stopped Accepting Books to Try To Catch Up?

Friday, February 28, 2014

I decided to join in a Book Blogger Hop at Beck Valley Books at least for this week!

This week's question is from Elizabeth at Silver's Reviews

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: There are times when I don't think I'll like the book that I will say no thank you to the author. That being said the authors, especially the Indy authors who contact me on their own, are getting to know which books I will accept and which I will not. Then of course there are the books that I see other book bloggers reviewing and decide that I just have to have that book! Once in a great while I even win a couple. My biggest problem comes in that I then feel obligated to review on my blog, put the review on Amazon and usually Goodreads every single book I read-and of course somehow notify the authors that I have done so.

Thankfully I am a very fast reader because I rarely say no--and as for catching up--why do I doubt that will ever happen? Somehow I do manage to keep up!!

This hasn't been a problem for me :( But I'd have to set limits if I had too many books sent to me, to make sure I had time to read them all. Here's my response: http://reading2011.blogspot.com/2014/02/book-blogger-hop.html

Happy Hopping!

My first time too this week !! 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. I won't review books that do not interest or appeal to me.

TERRIFIC that you can catch up and still accept. I am quite good about getting everything done, but I have cut down and am more particular about what I will read. :)

Happy Hopping!!

I have declined books before, either because I don't think it is something that I would like or because I don't have time for it.
Here's my answer

It's hard not to accept a book for review, especially if it's one I think I'd really really like.
