A few years ago I joined NetGalley (NG) (a service that provides ARCs to "professional readers and helps promote new and upcoming titles. Professional readers refers to reviewers, media, journalists, bloggers, librarians, booksellers and educators") that has helped me try new books and let other readers know what I think. I believe a year or so ago they provided/rewarded many of their professional readers with badges. I am lucky to have been awarded 3 out of 4 badges, plus a badge for a 2015 challenge.
So what exactly is on my reader sash? I am glad you asked!
Lastly, the badge for Book Advocate 2015 was given out this month to those who are serious about advocating books through reviews, and in having this badge you express your pride in books and reading. More on this later (other than accepting this challenge I have not delved into this challenge).
I want to thank all of you have supported me by just reading my blog and reviews so that I can continue to do what I love - read and write :)
