Step One: Face the Problem Netgalley-style!
Don’t people always say that the first step in overcoming a problem is to accept that you have a problem? Well, as a reviewer, the bane of my existance are unread Netgalley books. They are so easy to request – their wonderful catalogue is just a click away. You can request as much as you want, and more often than not you get accepted.
Fast-forward a few months: you’re buried alive by Netgalley files that just don’t get read.
I severely cut down on my Netgalley requests after a few months, but a few sneak in anyway. As of today, I have a total of 28 unread Netgalley books. Overall I don’t think that’s so bad – the bad thing is that I still have ARCs of 2011 releases *hangs head in shame*.
I’m going to list them all here as a reminder that I still have to read these books, old to new.
