It’s check-in time for my Netgalley update. Back in January I celebrated my 7 year blog anniversary and introduced a new individual challenge I am taking part in. I had picked 25 books on the Netgalley queue that I planned to read to help my Netgalley feedback ratio. It isn’t as easy as I expected.
I can’t believe I have completed another month of my Netgalley Bingo challenge. When I started this I didn’t think I would get so much done on this card, and then COVID happened and I had more time to read than not. Now we are down to 4 months left in the year and I have 3 books left for my coverall. Can I do it? I’m still not sure. But even if I don’t finish I’m calling it a success.
Speaking of success, I’m really proud of my success in getting my Netgalley ratio up. I had dreams of doing this for years but I would be distracted by new shiny (which admittedly is what got me into this ratio mess). But I had a goal and I was going to try and reach that goal. Well I reached it!!!!! I hit 70%! I can’t believe in January I was at 57% and I managed to get the percentage to 70%. It may not stay there, but I’m still aiming for that 75%.
Do you find yourself acquiring more books then you read? Share your experience in the comments.
I was doing pretty well not requesting ARCs but then like you said, COVID happened. Great progress!
