Friday Blog Hops!
This week's Book Blogger Hop by Crazy-for-Books is being hosted by Tea Time With Marce.
This week's question:
What Book were you determined to read this year but didn't?
Oh, wow, there are quite a few. My bookshelves are bulging with my TBR books and my Kindle is packed with unread books!Two books that I have downloaded but not yet read are City of Women and The Chaperone.
Both of these books are currently full price in the bookstores, but I paid $2.99 for each of them on Kindle Daily Deals! City of Women was a Kindle Daily Deal and I found out about it with 10 minutes to before the deal expired. I was so happy to get it at that price. However, I haven't read it yet.
At the Friday Feature and Follow, hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read, the question is:
What have you learned from book blogging that you didn’t know before about the publishing industry?
I must admit that I knew nothing about Advanced Reading Copies and that I could get free books to read before they were published. I was vaguely aware that big time book reviewers from places like The New York Times must get books ahead of time, but I didn't know that bloggers could get them!
I also knew nothing about book publishing conferences such as Book Expo America, which I attended last year!
