2017 Netgalley & Edelweiss Reading Challenge

I have to admit that when it comes to reading challenges I pretty much suck at doing them but I am hoping that things will change this year. One step at a time right? One challenge at a time!

I have been on NetGalley since 2009 and Edelweiss for a few years reading and reviewing books. Its such a great resource for bloggers to get access to new and upcoming books. I do have to say that getting accepted for books has been hit or miss on both sites for me. I have discovered though that over the years the higher your feedback ratio score is the better chance you have in getting accepted.

I am sure you are like me and have  logged on to NetGalley and perhaps Edelweiss with the intention of “Just Looking” and then the next thing is you have requested a few books even though your TBR is a mile long? This has happened to me many times and I thought this year I really need to get a handle on that and keep track of the books I have requested and read.

So I am going to take part in the NetGalley and Edelweiss 2017 Reading Challenge that is being hosted by Bookish Things and More. You can click on that link to take you directly to the reading challenge to find out more and how to join.

I am committing to read 50 (Gold)  NetGalley/Edelweiss books this year.

What about you?
