Every now and again I’m asked if I want to host a giveaway of finished copies or ARCs of a book. Postage and book prices being what they are everywhere, especially in Australia, I generally like doing book giveaways because hey, winning some books is a good thing, especially if it’s an author you adore or an author you’d like to try in a no-risk manner.
But here’s my question: sometimes I can get print ARCs and sometimes I can get finished copies. And I’d like to know: which do you prefer?
Since these prizes are for you, not me, I’d like to get a sense of your preference, especially because I try to ship worldwide whenever I possibly can. These are your potential prizes, not mine!
So! Have a handy poll—and if you have comments, please, I’d like to hear them.
