NetGalley Reaches a Milestone—thanks to you! (PLUS, a gift!)
100,000 professional readers are now using NetGalley to discover and spread the word about new books—that’s double the number from this time last year. We are honored to be the connection point between publishers and readers of influence—including librarians, reviewers and bloggers, media, booksellers, and educators. Thanks to each and every one of you for your continued enthusiasm and feedback.
As a thank you for your part in helping NetGalley grow to be a central resource for the industry, we’re highlighting a few new READ NOW titles from several publishers who believed in us from the very beginning. (We’re now working with over 200 publishers worldwide.) Because of your dedication to starting the buzz about their titles, these publishers would like to introduce you to these titles, which you can start reading and reviewing right now.
How do you recommend NetGalley titles? Use the Send Feedback button to tell publishers how you spread the word about books. Tell them if you’re purchasing the book for your library’s collection or hand-selling it in your bookstore, posting a review online or adding the title to your curriculum, and any other ways you may be starting buzz.

“Just wanted to say that is really makes it easy to order books for the library when you have already read the egalley and can make an informed choice. I think I checked off at least five books on our latest B&T order that I had read and enjoyed, books that I probably would have passed over before. Not to mention ordering personal copies as well. – Sharon Redfern, via NetGalley Facebook Page
“I love NetGalley! Being a bookseller, this really helps me in recommending books to customers and knowing they’ll be happy with their purchase. Net Galley works wonderfully with my Nookcolor as well so that makes it so convenient.” —Rachel Shell Vance, via NetGalley Facebook Page
