For week 3 of the World Read Aloud Day (WRAD) blogging challenge, bloggers were asked to “post a photo that gives readers a glimpse into your reading life.” I decided to go with this screenshot of my NetGalley bookshelf, since this is a relatively new addition to my reading life.
NetGalley is an online service that “delivers digital galleys, often called advance reading copies, or ARCs, to professional readers and helps promote new and upcoming titles.” Members look through the available titles and request approval to download the ones that look interesting. There is no cost to join or to preview books.
I haven’t been a member for very long, but it’s a lot of fun to get a sneak peek at upcoming books, and it gives me a little edge when I’m preparing book orders. Perhaps it’s something that you’d like to try!
