What is the NetGalley Shelf app?

The NetGalley Shelf app is our first mobile app, available for free on both iOS and Android devices. This app makes it easier than ever for NetGalley members to start reading or listening to books they’ve been approved to access. We’re excited to provide you with a simple and streamlined reading experience, as well as expand our support to include audiobooks!


How does it work?

As long as the publisher has enabled the NetGalley Shelf app as a Reading Option for their books, those will automatically appear in approved members’ NetGalley Shelf app. So this means once you’re approved for a book, you won’t need to press the Download button on the NetGalley website!

Since your NetGalley Shelf app will only include books you’ve been approved to access, you’ll still continue to discover, request, and provide Feedback for books on
