How to Delete a Book or Audiobook

  1. From Home, Recently read, or My Books, just tap and hold the cover image of the book you wish to delete.

If you wish to re-add a book or audiobook that you deleted, just find it in the Your NetGalley Shelf section of the app and tap the Download button again. If the book no longer appears in Your NetGalley Shelf, then the book has likely been Archived by the publisher in NetGalley.

 

How to Renew a Book

Many publishers enable an expiring license for their books on NetGalley. You will see a number of days remaining on your license in a gray box at the bottom of the cover image thumbnail. Most licenses last for 55 days, and can be renewed at any time before the book is archived in NetGalley. 

To renew a book's license with the iOS app: 

  1. From Home, Recently read, or My Books, just tap and hold the cover image of the book.
  2. Choose Renew from the menu that appears.
  3. The book's license will renew up to 55 days.

 

How to Submit Feedback and Reviews

Once you are done reading or listening to your book, make sure to return to the NetGalley website to submit your Review and Feedback. Open a browser window on your device or computer, and sign into your NetGalley account. Then locate the book on your Shelf (or by using the Search) and tap the Feedback button. 

Please note: If you delete the app from your device and then reinstall, any books or audiobooks that you have not yet downloaded, but have since been archived, will no longer appear on your device.

 

Android

My Books contains all of the books and audiobooks you have downloaded within the app.

While PDFs are paginated by default since our Android version 1.3.0 update, if you prefer to scroll up and down through your PDFs, instead of turning right to left, you can always change this by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right, where you'll then see the "Scroll" settings, which can be toggled off.
