Net Galley

I just got an email telling me about Net Galley. Am I the last one to learn about this? It's a site where bloggers and librarians can request free e-galleys of books to read. I am not one to get ARCs usually since I have access to all the YA books in my school library every day, but this seems like an interesting idea!

Here are some of the books that I noticed in the YA section of their catalog:

Tyger, Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

Iron King and Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

Have you tried using Net Gallery? Did you like it? If you haven't what do you think of the idea?

I'm reading my first Net Galley book right now, on my nook. I think it's a fantastic idea!

I have been using NetGalley for awhile now and I think it is fantastic. I do prefer paper copies of books because then I am not tied to my computer to read the book but it is nice to have access to such great ARCs for reviewing.

I like the idea of NetGallery, I've gotten access to a lot of books and recently finished my first one. Reading on your PC is difficult though so I got a Kindle... I like the idea of NetGalley but without an e-reader, it's kinda... weird lol.

I've never heard of it, until now.

Jill, Christina and Marie--so glad to hear you are using Net Galley and that it's good!

Bonnie--good luck trying Net Galley on your PC. I am going to try it when I get back from vacation

I'd not heard of it before, but I signed up and am already 150 pages into my first book. Thanks so much for the heads up.

Lisa--I like that I am the one who posted about Net Galley and am now probably the only one who hasn't used it yet! I'm glad you are into your first net galley book!

I heard of netgalley recently. After buying my nook, I signed up for too many books, now I'm trying to keep myself under control. LOL

Aths--I am going to look into Net Galley more seriously when I get home at the end of the month. People seem to really like it
