2016 Netgalley Reading Challenge – Sign Ups

ng2016_challenge My Netgalley Challenge from 2014 was so successful (well, not for me, but I like to think I had a good excuse) that I obviously had to make it a tradition! Hopefully this year will be just as helpful for Netgalley ratios everywhere!

How it works

To sign up, just add your information to the linky list below. Afterwards, choose the difficulty level you want. Once January 1st, 2016 arrives, you can begin reading, any books read before will not count. You can continue to request galleys, or you can read the ones you already have. The point is to get your feedback ratio closer to the recommended 80%.

Every 3 months, I will be posting an update on my own challenge which will also serve as a giveaway post. I will be running 4 giveaways through the year as incentives to be hitting your goals! You must have a post about the challenge which displays which level you have entered for that tracks what books you have read toward that challenge in order to enter the giveaways. You can format the post however you want, but you must include the challenge banner at the top, your challenge level somewhere within the post (you don’t have to use the level graphics), and that has at the very least a list of which books you have read. You can view my 2015 challenge post here if you would like an example. Yours doesn’t need to be as formatted as mine.

Challenge Levels

I had thought of upping the difficulty again, but when I thought about it, I just didn’t think that too many people might be requesting more than 40-50 through the year. I thought of making Hardcore move up to 100+ but that just seemed extreme. So the 2016 difficulty levels will remain the same as the 2015 ones. If you think they should be upped, by all means, tell me in the comments. It’s too late for it for this year, but there is always 2017.

Quarterly Giveaways

The quarterly giveaway posts often fall through the cracks, so I wanted to keep better track of them this year. All participants can enter, so go do so for a chance to win!

Join the Challenge!

Please use the link to your challenge tracking page and not the default link to your blog that way everyone can see your progress easily.

I am working on putting together a mailing list campaign just for this challenge that will allow you to get the quarterly posts right in your mailbox. It’s not up at the moment, but once I get it up, you will be added to the list. Rest assured, you can unsubscribe at any time. I mainly want to help those who don’t follow my blog keep track of the giveaways throughout the year. Those on this mailing list will only receive emails for entries as part of the Netgalley Challenge category and none others.

    1. Wow, the linky has a character limit? I totally didn’t know! Thanks for the link. I love stalking everyone’s page through the year. <3

  1. A great challenge and I hope that everyone raises their percentages. I have really appreciated Net Galley and been part of it since late 2012. Happy Reading! Jim
