What do you do with ARCs after you finish reading them? I am starting to get quite a few piled up.
Here are my options as I see them:
- Donate them to my High School Media Center until I get the finished book. (But some are for adult books that would not be appropriate there.)
- Give them away in contests. (But, if the finished book is now available, won't I be cutting into the author's sales for the book? That seems wrong!)
- Throw them away. (I absolutely hate the idea of throwing away books although I can force myself to do so if it is the best option.)
BTW, I love getting eARCs from NetGalley because they don't cause this sort of dilemma. I don't feel bad when I delete the file from my Kindle after reading it and writing the review.
