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 Feb 19/20



**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!

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Do you ever find yourself so behind on reviews, like you got over five to write, and you start forgetting what they're about. Then you get so stressed because you don't feel like you can just sit and read, instead you feel compelled to review but you never seem to do?

Yeah, that's me right now. Any suggestions, how do you peeps deal with it?


message 22: by Kazen (last edited Feb 02, 2017 03:58PM) (new)

Kazen It may not help much with this batch (sorry!) but I like to highlight on my ereader as I go through the book. Good parts, of course, but also bad parts, plot points, characterizations that are telling or good or annoying - all the stuff that makes me perk up. That way I can go through my notes later and jog my memory.

Hope that helps... I'm curious to see how other people tackle this problem, too!

Karen ⊰✿ | 14336 comments Mod
For the most part, I forget really quickly what a book was about, so I always review as soon as I finish. So sorry, I'm no help at all!!

Ok, I've exceeded my January Netgalley reading by getting one book read so far for Feb :)



A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
review


message 25: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments I review as soon as I've finished the book as well, but also use Kazen's trick of highlighting or quoting the book here just to jog my memory over particulars.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

Ugggh all of you guys are so organized about this. That was very helpful, I'll try to remember highlighting. I'd try to write a review immediately after I'm done reading, but I don't do well with pen and paper, and I don't always have a desktop & keyboard which is the best way for me.

Also another random question: how do y'all actual enforce a requesting ban? I've tried dozens of times to stop requesting more, but my self-control is weak and so on I sometimes get bored and start clicking. Any methods that have actually worked?


message 27: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments OMGOMG My new book has come up on Netgalley!! The Last American Hero by Nicole Field

And also two of my friends, which I have just requested. Peter Darling by Austin Chant Behind Bars (Pandemonium #2) by Meredith Katz


I am so bad at Netgalley. It's kind of you to say we're organised, Mars, but we really have to be with such poor impulse control.

Michelle | 465 comments That's so cool Nicole!

I just got approved for The List by Patricia Forde it doesn't come out for a while but I'm excited to probably read it soon :D
I also couldn't resist and got The Invisible Hand Shakespeare's Moon, ACT I by James Hartley . . . Got 3 new books and haven't read anything. . . Feb is going great


message 33: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3231 comments Mars - I also write my reviews as soon as I finish reading so that I don't forget too much. Sometimes, I keep a few notes, maybe on my notes app on my phone or on my laptop. It just helps me to remember things I want to comment on. I do that more often with nonfiction books.

I don't know about requesting bans. The only way I don't request is to not go on the site. I have also looked up some of the books (if they are previously published or soon-to-be published) in my library. Just knowing I can still read them for free sometimes helps me to not put the book on my shelf where I'm obligated to it.

Kristie | 3231 comments I just got Never Let You Go Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens . I've never read a book by Chevy Stevens, but I've been interested in many of hers. I'm looking forward to this one.

Of course, since I haven't read any, that puts my monthly total at +1.

Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments Well, I've just finished reading and reviewing Peter Darling (review)
And Keeping Love Alive as Memories Fade: The 5 Love Languages and the Alzheimer's Journey (review)
So that totally means it's time to request new books, right??

...that's the way the proverb goes, right? ;)

Nicole Field (nicolefield) | 1778 comments Still making it through the backlog. That's my new year resolution, I've decided: to get down to 0 books that have been on my shelf for three months. And I am now down to 4.

I'd also really love to have no more than 20 books on shelf total, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. Maybe next year's resolution...
