Where'd You Go, BookishFirst?

I feel like you guys have kind of up and disappeared on us, @bookishfirst_team.

No new books for this week yet. No new Friday question. No real shipping updates on many titles. Email responses are fairly generic.

I understand things happen, but we’re still your “customers” and deserve more updates, if even just a general, “hey guys! we’re sorry about the lacking ARCs, but unfortunately the publishers haven’t given us any updates…” Or something like that. We shouldn’t have to do the leg work of trying to get the publishers to talk to us, as most don’t anyway.

Maybe it’s just me, but it just feels a little odd. :woman_shrugging:


I was a little confused to! I noticed there weren’t any upcoming a day ago and I thought maybe they just hadn’t shown up yet? But now it’s Saturday so I’m guessing there won’t be any this upcoming week.


Usually they announce when they won’t have any giveaways. I wonder if they’ll do one of those pop up ones on this forum again
