Netgalley Science Fiction Readathon

Posted 5 September, 2015 by Rinn in Misc. / 17 Comments

In preparation for Sci-Fi Month 2015, I thought I’d set myself a bit of a challenge: to read as many of my science fiction Netgalley ARCs as possible for the event. This has two purposes: it provides me with content for the event, AND it helps me raise my Netgalley ratio even higher! If you […]
