Books Received

This is the list of books I'm sent by publishers and authors.  While some of these are books I've requested, the majority simply show up in my mail box.  I try to read as many of them as I can each month/year, but reading them all is somewhat impossible, given their number and all the other things that need to get done.
ARC = Advanced Reading Copy (unfinished copy, usually without final cover art and before final copy edits), also known as a galley.
