Hello, long time no see!
I hope you, your family, and friends are all staying safe. To any of those who are providing essential services right now, whether it be in the medical field or service sector, thank you. I know you’ve heard it many times but you deserve to hear it many, many more. Thank you, thank you, thank you! And to the rest of you… you better be staying inside. Six feet apart, people!
Anyway, the title of this post might make you think that these are tips on achieving the golden ratio of requested books to reviewed books on NetGalley… I’m sorry, but it’s not. I myself am sitting at a pitiful 60%.
Instead, I’m writing this as a challenge for myself. I haven’t been reading much at all lately, and even less so from my little (ha!) list of NetGalley titles. So, a challenge to myself, and all other reviewers out there, is to reach that 80%!
The bookworm’s ultimate point of sadness, and also a common excuse for reading slumps, is the “I don’t have time to read” conundrum. Whether or not this was true before, it’s
definitely probably not true now.
So go log into NetGalley. Look at your shelf. You requested those books for a reason. They intrigued you for a reason!
I myself have 35 books received and 21 reviewed, which means I have to read 7 to reach that 80% mark. Easy peasy. I’m going to be tagging a few people who I will invite to participate in this little quest as well. But if any of you are sitting below 80% (or somehow, you’ve reached it), I’m sure NetGalley authors would love your participation as well!
