If you received an email from a publisher containing a “widget” link, that means you have been pre-approved to view and download that book on NetGalley! Here’s what you need to know.
Step 1: Open the email from the publisher that contains the widget. The widget link is usually a cover image, with text, as below or a URL. Click on the cover image or text link.
Step 2: This will open your web browser to a unique sign-in page for this particular book on NetGalley. You will also see the picture of the cover image on the left.
Step 3: If you are already a NetGalley member, simply sign into your account, and you will be taken to the Title Details page for this book. You can view information about the book and if you would like to accept it, click the Read It! button to download it or send to your Kindle.
If you are new to NetGalley, welcome! Click the Register Now button to the right and fill in the required fields to create a free NetGalley account. Then check your email inbox for an authentication email to activate your account. NOTE: if you do not receive the authentication email, please contact support so we can activate your account.
Step 4: When you click on the authentication link in the email, it will redirect you to that same widget sign in page (shown above). Sign in with your newly created login and password.
Step 5: When you sign in, you will be taken directly to the Title Details page where you can decide if you would like to accept the invite. If so, click the Read It! button and you'll then be able to press one of the green reading option buttons to download and start reading.
