Okay so I went overboard with NetGalley requests through August and September and got approved for a lot of them! Never NetGalley when bored!! Lol. My percentage is ridiculously low on the site now, so I am attempting a NetGalley request ban. Although I get distracted when I go onto write a review and end up browsing books lol.
I admit that I have a slight addiction problem… I am not much better on Edelweiss, although they have less of selection which in turn leads to less requests.
