Haha. I just read the details and found out Giffin's publisher decided to give a book to everyone who entered... so I'm not as lucky as I thought, but at least I still get the book :)

Is the GoodReads contest thing the same as the FBF? Or do they pester you with a lot of spam, etc? If not, I would be interested to enter into the GR one too!

You can register to get ARC on that site to review - they base winners on random drawing + activity on the site + how well the book fits your genres... so if you wanted to add your books to that site you would have a good chance of getting some ARCs :)

I just won an Emily Giffin book on GoodReads.com :)  Do I need to do anything or will it just arrive?  Would this book be considered an ARC?


Question:   When I entered the contest, I thought it was because I read something about it here in the forums.  Thought someone had said if you don't want to put your address you could enter only your pbs email or nickname..  am I imagining this, or possibly confusing it with Free Book Friday, another site I read about here.  Thank you by the way for sharing these sites.

You had to enter your address when you entered the giveaway on Goodreads :) It is not an ARC because it has already been released!

I think you are thinking of the PBS member was giving away a book on her blog, she allowed us to just put our PBS name.

I don't know if anyone else does this, but pretty much every book they list on FBF, I am adding to my WL! It's a great way to hear about books that I want to read (and they ALL seem to be big winners to me!).
