NetGalley

Feed Your Readers, the NetGalley Challenge

Duration: Monthly

How to Participate:

The NetGalley Challenge is designed to not only get you to read your NetGalley books, but to also advertise your reviews for others to see because after all, that's what NetGalley is all about.

Though you may pop in/out at any time, the NetGalley Challenge will run on a monthly basis so you are able to see progress being made.


1. At the beginning of the month, post any/all of the following:
a: How many books on your NetGalley shelf
b: What books are on your NG shelf
c: What your Netgalley feedback ratio is

2. During the month, read the NetGalley books that you can AND update your post with your reviews. (You can do this after each book or wait until the end of the month.)

3. At the end of the month, update your post and with:
a: What books you read
b: Link(s) to your review(s)**
c: Your updated shelf count
d: Your updated books to read
e: Your updated ratio

Then start a new post for the next month!


But Wait, There's More

Do you ever get so caught up in your reading that you don't want to stop to write your reviews?

Thinking about that, it was decided we need a "Review Weekend", once each month, set aside to write those reviews you've been not doing in favor of reading!

Review Weekends will vary randomly each month and is meant to be a time set aside to review. Take one, or both days and get caught up on reviews so you can spend the rest of the month reading!!

The next Review Weekend is set for August 13th & 14th



**When linking your reviews, please link only to the book(s) here at GoodReads. At this time, linking to a personal blog is not allowed. Thank you!

Thanks, Marcelina! I got the email, but was busy at the time and didn't read it. I probably would have forgotten to go back to it.

Yep. Since starting in August I've added three new books to my shelf and finished none.

Is anyone else finding NetGalley particularly evil at the moment? I seem to be getting a couple of emails a day and today a publisher sent me widgets for two more books

Yep, I think that NetGalley has at least sent 2 or 3 emails out so far this month. I don't like ads, I don't like when companies/websites constantly send out these types of emails. So there's being so evil ^-^ that it's hard for me to not be tempted and resist the requesting of more and more books. :/

Lara | 676 comments NetGalley Review

I reviewed Shadow Falling (The Scorpius Syndrome, #2) by Rebecca Zanetti and am really enjoying this series (this is book 2). https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

However, when I went to post my review I found I had been approved for two more books!

I know, right? It's those widgets that are evil. They make it way too easy to add them to my list.


message 46: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2628 comments Got another NetGalley email today. Read now for the first 200 members. I was strong and resisted :)

I also finished a book today. Just need to write the review now.
