After hundreds of hours of writing and editing, my story has finally reached that time: beta reader time. Prolem is, I don't know much about beta readers. I know what they are. What they do. A few sites on where I can start looking for them. But that's really about it.
I plan to finish my last pre-beta round of editing tonight or tomorrow, and I would like to try to find a few beta readers by next friday. (I leave to go to London for spring break on saturday. Woot woot! Hence the deadline...)
What I would like to know is what is your experience with beta readers? Have you used beta readers? Would you like to? Where did you find them? Your shared experience is greatly appreciated.

P.S. If you want to know more about my story and are interested or know someone who would be interested in being a beta reader for me, feel free to check out my "back cover story"
