Net Galley Guilt: An Informal Poll

Net Galley Guilt

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t kept up with my Net Galley requests. My feedback ratio is still above 80%, but I’ve got something like, um, nine books that are over three months old… Eek.

I’m curious, though, what do your Net Galley stats look like?

  • How many books do you have left to review?

  • How many books did you request more than three months ago?

  • What is your feedback percentage?

I’m usually so anal retentive about giving timely feedback that this is new territory for me. Just wondering how I measure up, even in my delinquent state… 😭

  1. This is me! I feel so bad about it too. I have too many on my shelf as it is and up until a few days ago, I was still adding. Maybe I’m addicted, lol. I’m afraid I might not have downloaded a few of them quick enough and they are already archived. Yikes! As of now, I have like 18-25 that I need to read and review. I’m still at 80% feedback though. ❤

    1. I had the same thing happen to me, especially when I first started using Net Galley! Now I send the book to my Kindle immediately, or else I’ll forget and it auto-archives. I still have maybe three titles that I never sent to my kindle, though they’re so old now that I can just check them out from the library. Whoops! 😬

  2. Hmm… I feel incredibly guilty now! 28 to review, 17 of which are more than 3 months old. In my defence around 12 of them are ones I’ve had for absolute ages and will probably never read, but I keep putting off removing them just in case the mood strikes me one day. I’m better now at only requesting ones I really want to read. But I’m smug about my ratio – 93%! Bet you’re jealous now… 😉

    1. Haha, yeah I kind of am! I’m barely keeping my ratio alive right now… I only have two books that are reeeeeeally old, but I’m the same as you–still hopeful I’ll get to them eventually! Now I just need to stop requesting more stuff… 😬
