Feature and Follow #18

Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers — but you have to know — the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

Here’s this week’s question:

What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?

When I started book blogging, I thought it would be just about me buying a book then doing a review and posting it on my blog. Then I started getting authors contacting me and I thought, wow, free books. But now Harlequin Australia have just started sending me finished books to review. I didn't realise that the large publishing companies seny you copies of books to read, for free!! I was so excited because they happen to be by some of my favourite authors!  

What do you think?

What's your FF?
