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 Oct 21/22



**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!

I liked it, but I'm not sure of the magical realism component. It was a little too minor to be of an importance so felt like it didn't quite fit

Kristie | 3192 comments I just got a protected PDF of Healthyish: A Cookbook with Seriously Satisfying, Truly Simple, Good-For-You (but not too Good-For-You) Recipes for Real Life. However, when I open it, I only have access to a few random pages and the rest are all blank, white pages. I'm currently using adobe digital. Do you guys have anything different I might try? Something you use?

I hate getting protected PDFs. I just want everything to go to my Kindle. I also don't like that they're dated and you can't go back to them later.

Urgh. I hate those PDFs too. I wish NetGalley would say the format available before we request :)

10 books I've added to my shelf so far this month and I have three requests outstanding. Thank goodness I got knocked back for a couple (apparently because "the limit for the number of downloads has been reached for this title!" which seems odd as they only went up today).
