Frequently Asked Questions

How many galleys can we provide?
The majority of book clubs have 6 or more members, and we request a minimum of 30 print galleys. You can also offer a combination of physical and digital galleys, but plan to include more print galleys - we can't determine in advance the number of digital galleys that might be requested. Publishers should plan to provide access to digital galleys through NetGalley, and send a widget that we can distribute to those members.

How many book clubs will we reach?
We will match your galleys with our registry of book clubs based on group size and reading preferences. The book clubs on our registry average 10-12 members, but some are much bigger or smaller. You will provide galleys for all members of the groups reading the selected title. You can designate the number of galleys and an approximate number of book clubs to receive galleys.

Who mails the galleys?
Publishers mail print galleys or books directly to the book club coordinators and create widgets for NetGalley access.
