Either I'm In Or I'm Out...






In my mind...NetGalley is like Project Runway...you're either in or out and it's always a surprise...
and it is fun...
and suspenseful...
and like waiting for a package in the mail. You never know if that email will grant or deny a request to read and review the books you want to read and review.

I love that there is an "expiration" date on the book...it motivates me...
I need motivation...
It would be even better if they sent some Godiva chocolates when a book is finished.

Mmmm...

I also love that once a book is read...I delete it from my iPad2.

No clutter...no figuring out what to do with it...press delete and bye bye book!!!

The down side is when my party invitation doesn't come...
When the book I think is perfect for me is refused by the publisher for reasons unknown!!!

Usually the reasons are that I don't live in Canada or the UK, I am not a librarian or I don't have the correct profile...

I am so bad with rejection of any kind...

Sigh...

Lately I am on a roll with NetGalley...with luscious books coming my way...the people at NetGalley are helpful, skilled and kind. They even checked over my "bio" to make sure it is what it should be...

If you use an iPad, NetGalley books format beautifully on Bluefire Reader. I love reading them this way.

For me...it's all about good formatting.

Here are a few of my recent NetGalley books.




























Now I need to get to them before their expiration date!!!

  2. I got one or two books from net galley and didn't get them read in time, so I've given up with that. My problem is, I would forget about them once I downloaded them because they weren't staring me in the face.

    1. I was that way in the beginning because I didn't like they looked on my Kindle...now it's a whole new ball game.

  3. I think I'll avoid Net Galley...I don't need any more obsessions! lol

    However, it is lovely to get books you're wanting, no matter the source.

    Outside the Lines is wending its way toward me! I got the "it shipped" e-mail yesterday. I loved Hatvany's Best Kept Secret, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

    I want to read Blue Monday, too, as Nicci French is an author I've enjoyed.
