My free reading challenge: lost in Netgalley

I signed up for Netgalley recently. I wouldn’t have bothered, but a book I’d requested to review for a blog tour was only available via Netgalley, so I got myself an account.

I’ve tried to be disciplined, I swear I have. But it’s a bit like another bookshop – except one where most of the books aren’t freely available yet. It’s an awful lot like being able to open your Christmas presents early. I only had a look around for a minute, I promise, but even that was maybe too much for an inveterate book lover.

Apart from the book I’d requested to review (A Criminal Magic – it’s brilliant; watch out for my review on the Paisley Piranha site later this month), I’ve also requested and downloaded Dawn of the Vie and The Masterminds, both by authors I’ve read and enjoyed before.

Since it’s not like my Kindle was in any way threadbare before adding those, I think I’m going to have to have a couple of weeks of head-down reading to slim down my TBR pile before I let myself through the door of Netgalley again. Can my self-discipline take the strain? You’ll find out here first!

Anyone else a Netgalley reader? Let me know your experiences. Anyone got lost in there for days?
