Do you use NetGalley, Edelweiss, both, or neither?
To be honest, I don't think I understand Edelweiss, it's all very messy, busy and unintuitive.
I'm rarely declined on NetGalley but on Edelweiss I'm rarely approved!
This is a shame because I think that the selection of books on Edelweiss is often superior to that of NetGalley.
I think there must be some kind of wizardry involved in Edelweiss approvals... Some metaphorical secret handshake to stick in your 'about me' section that lets the publishers know you're in the club and to tick the yes button every time you ask nicely for a book.
I would say if anybody knows what that is to let me in on the secret but, actually, please don't.
I really don't want to fall into the ARC trap pit again. I've been relatively well behaved of late and I still have about a dozen eARCs to wade through.
