Welcome back!

Hope y'all had a good holiday season and a happy New Year!

So, guess what happens Sunday?


Yup, welcome back to gifs. Nope, that wasn't just a 2012 thing. We've hit over 450 followers with my stick figures and bizarre humor, so we're gonna keep that going of course.

Anyway, back to the point (is there ever one?). Let's go over a few easy peasy reminders for how breaks work.

Yes, so we've been off the last two weeks, but as far as ARCycling is concerned, those 2 weeks never happened.
So, on December 16th, did you:
- Get two books? Great. You're on Time Out for the next two weeks.
- Get one book? Cool. This Sunday is your last chance to get another book before Time Out.
- Were on Time Week Time Out Week 1 when break started. You got one more week of Time Out.
- Were free and clear when break started. Well, by golly, you're free and clear now!

Now, for some more fun news!
Slowly, but surely I've been watching my Review Archive number rise and this makes me a happy pig-tailed girl. So I said to myself, "Kyle," (no, JK, but if you get this very small 90s TV show reference, let's be best friends) "Jennifer, how can you reward people who have been awesome AND encourage more peeps to get reviews in?"

Sending out gifts would be uh, expensive, besides what do I even have? Bookmarks? No. Boring. But then I thought of something. And when we reach 100 reviews in the Review Archive, Jennifer might just have a giveaway to only those reviewers on the Review Archive. And it might just be one entry per review.  Which might mean that if you've submitted 10 reviews, you get 10 entries. Which might mean you have a 1 in 10 chance of winning. Which might be awesome. Jennifer might not know the exact prize right now, but it might involve a big randomized box of books/ ARCs to the winner. Might.
So, chew over that might-be situation.

And for those of you who are sitting on books to be reviewed, chew on that as well. And don't mind me as I have Fry stare at you...


  1. Newbie question: how do I sign up to receive ARCs?

    1. Oh, one more thing: I loved Boy Meets World! :)

    2. Disregard newbie question! I found the answer. Do not disregard Boy Meets World fandom, though. That can stay. :)


  2. Yay, welcome back!

    Hopefully 2013 will be the year I actually get an ARC from here! :P

  3. Happy 2013! If you never receive one of your ARCycling books are you still responsible for the review!

    1. Nope, but you should let me know which ARC and such. Shoot me an email about this. I have a way of coercing donors into mailing... or something like that.

  4. Can't wait! (discovered this site a week ago and is excited it get started! :)
