You can call this a discussion post for I’m aware I’m not alone with this – I found myself overwhelmed with my Netgalley Shelf. Having an endless TBR list is common to us so maybe having a long list of requested and approved books on Netgalley isn’t that such a big problem to fuss about. But we all know our Netgalley shelf isn’t just another TBR list. This list is filled with Advance Reader’s Copies of books that caught our interest while browsing their catalogue of books. They are called ARCs for a reason and that reason I keep on neglecting.
“I know James, it’s disappointing.”
Intentional or not still it’s disappointing, especially that I, myself, is an aspiring author. I shouldn’t have requested those ARCs if I knew I didn’t have enough time to read them.
But that’s the problem, isn’t it? When it comes to books, we always think we have the time.
Just as when we visit a bookstore/library, we browse through the shelves and then when we see something we like, we take it with us, without even thinking about the TBR we left at home. Without even thinking that we might be running out of free time to fit all those books.
Speaking of time, it’s February. The month of LOve, people. 🙂 🙂 🙂 And so to show my love not only to books but also to new/indie authors….
I decided to dedicate my(this) whole week to reading nothing but ARCs. It’s Monday today and here in the Philippines, it’s already coming to an end. That left me only six days left until my wrap-up. On Sunday night I will have a wrap-up post that will be filled only with ARCs.
Good luck to me. Though it means setting aside for now the other books I want to read. It’s okay. 🙂 🙂
How about you guys… How are your Netgalley Shelves? Let’s chat. 🙂
