In which I declare July to be NETGALLEY MONTH! With prizes ;)


My oh my! Is is July already?
I for one, couldn't be happier since today marks the start of another fabulous month in which to declare our love for NetGalley :)

If you have no idea what I'm talking about here is the condensed version --  In April, I declared it to be NetGalley month and I challenged all of you to read as many NetGalley books as you could. The Lovely Lindsay from NetGalley was kind enough to tweet chat with us, prizes were offered and a massive amount of books were read! In a word - it was awesomesauce!

Because of the popularity and the amount of fun I had, I decided to do it all over again in July :)
A few changes and a few new things but overall the goals are the same. Read as many NetGalley books as you can this month!

So, who wants to join me?
It's really simple and there are prizes :)

DETAILS:

*DECLARE YOURSELF*
Post on your blog (preferable), your Facebook wall, on Tumblr -- somewhere on the interwebs -- and link back to this post. Basically, tell your followers and friends about NetGalley July and comment below with your link
Or
Tweet about the event using the hashtag #NetGalleyMonth
The only real criteria is to have a link back to this post somewhere in your declaration and you must comment below :)

*READ*
As many NetGalley books as you can in July -- make sure you keep track of them because this time, in order to be eligible for a prize you must report your reads to me. Another post, an email, a comment on the wrap up post in August - doesn't matter - I just want to know what you read :)

*PRIZES*
2 people will win $15 worth of books from The Book Depository!

Other Details:
*You do not need a blog in order to participate - you only need to be a member of NetGalley
*You do not need to follow my blog -- you only need to declare yourself AND check back in with me in August with your totals. But you may want to at least bookmark or RSS subscribe so you don't miss out on updates throughout the month.
*Prizes are open to everyone The Book Depository ships to!
*Please use the hashtag #NetGalleyMonth on Twitter and (hopefully?) talk it up as much as you can during July :)
*Extra entry points will be offered for completing NetGalley tasks throughout the month - more on that later :)
*Another Twitter chat with Lindsey will take place later in the month - more on that soon :)

Questions? Do not hesitate to email me -- WilowRaven(at)gmail(dot)com

So, now that I've DECLARED MYSELF -- how about you?

  46. That is so brilliant! I'm tempted to join you, of course, but I just got a pile of ARCS from the American Library Association Annual Conference, so I've got to power through those first.
    I also have a terrible habit of reading all sorts of backlist stuff that I've checked out from the library... got to get those books back to the library on time.
    I'm sure I WILL be reading some Netgalley books this month though... In fact, I already have. Just finished Wisdom's Kiss, and I enjoyed it.
