NetGalley--A Great Place For Book Lovers

I think I stumbled on NetGalley through Goodreads one day, and I am so glad I found it.  NetGalley is a place where many publishers offer up e-galleys of books that are to be published in the near future.  You sign up for free, create a bio so publishers know who you are, and request e-galleys.  If they approve them, you download the e-galley to your computer, and then to your e-reader.  You get the e-galley for 60 days, and they just ask that you review it and mention NetGalley.  

I  love this place!  So far, I have managed to request and receive probably about 10 books that I would have read anyway in a few months.  And they're free!  Not all publishers are on NetGalley, but most are.  It's a lot of fun to look around and see what's on offer.  I've written reviews for 3 of the books I've read.  

So here's my shout out to NetGalley.  Check out their website and see if it's something you would like.  For me, it's helping me to read more of what I want to read, and not have to decided what to buy.  Now I don't have to give up any of the books I want to read because I have a limited book budget.  


  1. Thanks so much for this info....books have become so expensive it is nice to have a way to save a little money in this regard.



  2. You're welcome, Jo! There is a wide variety, so there's something for everyone.

  3. Just started "A Discovery of Witches" and wanted to let you know! :-) Can't wait to really dive into it.

  4. Jewels: the beginning is slow, but hang in there! Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  5. You can redownload he galley as many times as you need. It expires in 60 days but you can download it again if you didn't get to it.
