Advanced Readers Copies (ARCs) and Uncorrected Proofs (UPs) are available for preview from Leah Burden (Book Farm Representative), Brittany Gabbard (Blanchester alumnus who works for Joseph Beth Booksellers), and from several book companies. Authors and book publishers just ask that you leave a review on Amazon and pass the ARC or UP on to another reader.
Anytime I come across articles online that support reading, writing, libraries and librarians I like to share them with you here, via our Facebook page, Pinterest page, and/or Twitter feed. After awhile they are then moved to Link Love- Online Article page. Enjoy!

While your application, essays and recommendations give the school a pretty good idea about who you are as a student and a person, they are no substitute for a face-to-face meeting where you can talk about your interests and goals. General guidelines: be on time, dress appropriately, ask questions, find out about the school and its programs, be prepared to talk about yourself, and relax.
