Introducing Net Galley

Okay, this posting is not craft related but I think that it is worth sharing especially if you love to read.

On Monday, I discovered a great website called Net Galley.  This site is a place to get free ebooks in exchange for a written review.  Most of the books have not even been released yet.  These books are received directly to your kindle or you can download them to your e-reader.  If you do not have an e-reader, then they have the Adobe Digital Editions for free so you can read it from your computer.

When you sign up, set up your profile and public bio that will be visible to publishers.  Then take some time and browse the catalog for books that appeal to you.  If you like it, you may request a copy of it from the publisher.  Then you have to wait for the publisher to approve your requests and your books are available to download.

Lately, I have really been reading Amish fiction and I found several of them here.  Here are all the books that I have downloaded for review:

2) Kelly's Chance by Wanda E. Brunstetter
3) Lydia's Charm by Wanda E. Brunstetter
5) Simple Secrets by Nancy Mehl
6) Tyger Tyger (Goblin Wars, #1) by Kersten Hamilton
7) Fear No Evil by Robin Caroll
8) The Mermaid's Mirror by L.K. Madigan
9) A Simple Amish Christmas by Vannetta Chapman
10) Goodness Gracious Green by Judy Pace Christie
11) When the Devil Whistles by Rick Acker
12) A Time to Love by Barbara Cameron

I have to finish reading Catching Fire (Hunger Games, #2) by Suzanne Collins and then finish the series with MockingJay (The Final Book of the Hunger Games) by Suzanne Collins before I can start any of the new ones.

Happy reading!


  1. oh I love the Hunger Games series! I'm anxiously awaiting the third book!

  2. So glad you found my book, Diane. I know authors definitely don't think readers/reviews are useless! (Your blog title is cute though.) Thanks so much for taking the time to read A SIMPLE AMISH CHRISTMAS.

  3. I download books all the time, this is a great find. Thanks very much.

  4. I loved Simple Secrets it was great. If they still have it you should check out Missing Mabel it was a fun read as well. I think Nancy Mehl is one of my new favorite authors :).
