ARC Entitlement | A Discourse

So I just read this article by Publisher’s Weekly that did a short review of BookCon.  In it there were a couple of interviews with attendees who felt displeased with the lack of free stuff – both ARCs and swag – available for them to get from publishers.  And all I could think was, really?  That’s what’s important to you?  Getting as many free books and stuff as possible?
