I’ve seen many reviewers and bloggers mention NetGalley before and I’ve always wondered what it was and how it works. However, I had never gotten around to signing up. Until now. A lovely author contacted me about her new book and she mentioned that it was available for request on NetGalley and that prompted me to sign up.
I genuinely have no idea what I’m doing or how it works (I should probably read the FAQs or whatever) but I’ve requested that author’s book and I’ll see what happens next. I am a bit wary about all of the books being digital editions but it makes sense in commercial terms. I’m not one for e-books unless they’re theory books that I’m reading for a project. I’m sure I’ll get used to it though if I get approved for any books.
Do you use NetGalley? What are your thoughts about it?
