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 Jan 20/21



**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 just requested a few too. I'm hoping to do better in January than I did in December.


message 9: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2563 comments I've made it one of my new year's resolutions that I won't request more than I read and review in a month. My ratio looks ok but I have too many archived books sitting on my shelf.

Weirdly on NetGalley my shelf has more books than my feedback ratio would suggest. My ratio is based on 30 unread, my shelf has 33. I have no idea why.

I have two shelves--one for recent books and one for those that were approved over 3 months ago. Perhaps your extra three are older books?


message 11: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2563 comments I thought that myself but I have 29 on my older than 3 months shelf. I thought maybe it was the oldest ones but there's more than 3 from around the same time.

It's a mystery. I just hope they don't suddenly add them back to my feed back ratio calc as it'll push it down.

I have far too many older / archived books too. Out of my 13, only 2 are on my "current titles" list. The rest are older than 3 months. I really want to start getting to titles within the 3 month timeframe. Right now, my oldest was downloaded Feb 22, 2017. Every time I pick it up something else comes up. It's not that the book is bad, but I just can't seem to get through it. I think I'm going to have to put aside a day and just read it.


message 14: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2563 comments I have 4 on my current shelf with the earliest archive date Feb so it's not too bad. It's those older books I really must get around to. My oldest is June 15 and is from when I first joined and went a bit nuts.


message 15: by Michelle (new)

Michelle | 465 comments I like to read one of my newer books and then one of my oldest ones (or sometimes at the same time) & that way I get to the books I'm most excited about (and remember what they're about :D) and don't feel guilty for abandoning my oldest books :D.

The only downside is that some of my oldest books are in the middle of series and I didn't realize that before requesting them, so I need to read like 2-3 books for one of NG. :/


message 16: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2563 comments I've been caught by the later book in the series thing a few times. I wish they would make it a bit more obvious.


message 17: by Karen ⊰✿, Fiction Aficionado (new)

Karen ⊰✿ | 14471 comments Mod
I really dislike the shelf being separated into "over 3 months" because I read by publication date. Sometimes books are granted 6 or more months in advance and even the publisher requests the reviews closer to the release date. So I find it a really useless separation that actually makes it more difficult for me to work out what I need to read next.
(excuse the whine lol)

Yes!
This and advising in advance if it is a PDF or Kindle version would make a huge difference


message 19: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3282 comments I agree, Karen. I feel like if they’re on the older list I’m slacking. But some on that list for me aren’t even archived yet.

And YES on the pdf format. I almost requested a book recently and read the reviews which stated that it was a pdf and some people had difficulty downloading it.

Michelle | 465 comments Karen ⊰✿ wrote:

Yes! I recently changed phones and my new one won't let me read them. Aaand to make things more fun, the battery of my old phone doesn't work properly so if I read 10 pages of any PDF it'll turn off.

For me personally, either adding a little sign that says it's a PDF or making a little blog on how to read PDFs in different devices would save me so much stress.


message 21: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 2563 comments I don't know if it's on that older than 3 months list I can pretend it doesn't exist :) Seeing 4 on the screen makes me happier than 33.

I've only been caught by the pdf thing once and it was a cookbook. I didn't realise they self destructed after a certain period.

Kristie | 3282 comments Theresa - You’re NetGalley shelf is the books you still have to read and review through NetGalley, so your “current” shelf plus your “older than 3 months” shelf. Some people choose to only list the books they plan to read for the month, especially if they have a lot. That is up to you.

Kristie | 3282 comments Hahaha. I just got two emails requesting reviews for books I haven't requested. I'm hesitating. I'm not sure I want to add to my pile. I still have, I think, 3 pending.

Tiffany Marin (tiffers919) | 102 comments Kristie, I get that a lot, too, lol. Not just on Netgalley but through email. All of a sudden I’ll have new books in my email because an author liked my reviews or something. I end up so far behind because of that and because I have books that I want to read that were already on my tbr list. I love it though! I need a job that will just pay me to stay home and read. 😁

Tiffany Marin (tiffers919) | 102 comments This may be a dumb question but where do I find my “older than 3 month shelf”?


message 50: by Kristie (new)

Kristie | 3282 comments Tiffany - On NetGalley, when you go to "your shelf," you can click on "give feedback." Under there, it says "Current titles (#) | Older than 3 months (#)." You can click on either current titles or older than 3 months to see those shelves.
