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 December 15/16



**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!

Still have a ridiculous number of books on my shelf but I'm hoping I'll at least get all of my outstanding reviews posted by the end of the year.

Don't feel bad - I do the same thing to myself ALL THE TIME. I even have a folder on my computer labeled 'review notes' which never gets used. *headdesk*

I'm the same way. I just finished the two oldest books off my shelf and they were both over a year old. How embarrassing! I still have one more that's been on there forever to remove, then I'm at least current to within a year. I'm trying not to request any more until I'm caught up to only books that are fairly new, but I do have my eye on one...

Vicki Willis | 351 comments I finished another one (ahead of the publication this time!)
I do like this author, generally, but this one missed the mark for me. It was ok, but not great. I probably will forget about it in 2 days.
