    Organizing ARCs

    I am just curious what people's thoughts are on how they organize their ARCs. Do you keep them all together or do you have the ARC of a title right next to the hardcover copy of it (assuming you own that copy of course). Right now the ones I have are mainly paired with their hardcover release, but I am debating whether I should move things around and have all the ARCs together

    I have all my ARC's together. I have hardcover versions of about half of them but do not store the dual ARC's with them. I like how the ARC's looked together, I am not sure I would like them mixed in with the hardbound books.

    I'm with Martin, to a point, I keep my ARC's (not that I have a whole bunch) separate from their HC, LE, etc counterparts (see 1st photo) although my King ARC's are grouped kind of generally with some of my other SK stuff (see photo 2).

    I keep mine separated as well. Just looks better that way in my opinion.

    I've only got 7 arcs, so it's pretty easy to separate them.

    I to keep my ARC's together.Not with there hard cover brother.Ithink they look good as a group and people tend to notice them more and ask questions about ARC's and then I get to bore them to death talking about my collection.

    That's true. All my arcs ar from CD, so they all have the sane binding.

    As opposed to the far less common, but far more dangerous ... (in)sane binding

    We all know the only sane thing about Squire is his binding

    I hate it when my fingers stop thinking. Spelling goes out the window! Of course, if wasn't trying to type a breakneck speed...
    I barely was able t omake 36 errors a minute in high school. And thats only because it was one sentence that you typed over and over again for 60 seconds.

    I don't remember. But after the first time through, your fingers start remembering rhythms and positions. If it had been transcribing text, it would have been around 23 words a minute...

    I keep all editions of my books right next to each other, whether ARC, trade, limited or even paperback editions. I'd never be able to keep track of what I have otherwise.

    I keep all of my ARCs together on the bookshelf separate from their hardcover counterparts. I only have about 15 of them and they are all from CD though, so they fit nicely together.

    I'm getting my first ARC shortly so I guess my only option is to put it with everything else. For now...

    The first one may be free, but then you are hooked.
