Want a fun way to reach your #NetGalleyGoals? Tackle your TBR pile and boost your NetGalley stats with NetGalley Bingo!


How to Play

—NetGalley Bingo will run from July 1, 2021 to August 31, 2021.

—Each book or action can only be used for a single square on the board. For example, you cannot use the same book for both “Five-star read” and “Share a review to a retail site.”

—To score a bingo, you must complete a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal row of five squares.

—Each prompt is open to your interpretation. For example, the “Raise your Feedback Ratio” prompt can mean that you raised it to the recommended 80% or simply that you went up a percentage.
