I have exciting news! I logged onto NetGalley yesterday to find that I had recently gotten a new badge, one that I was fairly certain I would have to wait some time for but managed to get rather quickly. I had expected that I would be waiting for the Auto-Approved badge for a long time, hoping for the best but not really expecting a whole lot of anything. I could not be more thrilled to find out that I was wrong. It was such a lovely surprise.
As far as the 80% badge that I had talked about wanting to achieve some time ago, I have a feeling that it’s going to just take a lot more time than I anticipated. I appear to have no self-control when it comes to requesting novels and so I always end up with a percentage between 72% and 80%. The few times that I’ve gotten 80% it hasn’t lasted long and never long enough for the badge to appear on my profile.
But, I am working on it, reading a bunch and not shutting down any attempt to keep me from getting it. I have over 100 reviews at this point, of course, so hopefully it wont end up being too, too long after this. Either way, I’m pretty proud of my achievements.
