I only signed up at Netgalley about six months ago, but I have really been enjoying my experience so far. Friendly publishers (an especial shout out to Bookouture!) have shown me I don’t need to have thousands of followers or need to live in the UK/US to be able to receive ARCs of some pretty darn good books. And the only thing I might regret is that I didn’t sign up sooner!!
That said, like most Netgalley users, I tend to go a little crazy with the request button and getting to the mythical 80% ratio has been a struggle. So when I saw this 2017 Netgalley challenge at Bookish Things & More I just HAD to join. It’s a year long challenge that will hopefully inspire me to pay closer attention to the ARCs I request and read more of them as well… There are different levels, but I will be aiming for the following goal:
Silver – 25 Books
In the six months since I’ve joined this year, I managed to review 40 titles and I have another 12 ARCs pending, so I think this number should be pretty doable.
I will be looking forward to this challenge! Is anyone else joining? And what is your personal experience with Netgalley?
