Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing business?
A: That advanced reader's copies actually exist, for one.  Beyond that, I feel that when I become an author, I'll have an advantage because I know how books can be promoted.  And when I want to give away some ARCs of my own book, I now have a whole network of people I can contact.  

Book blogging has also really upped the amount of books I read, and I've come to realize that being an editor would be a nice profession.  So, through book blogging, I've gained an interest in a position within the publishing business.
