Edelweiss Reviewer’s Group on Goodreads

Hello Lovely Bookbloggers!

Many of you know that I am a member of NetGalley and Edelweiss.  A while back I noticed that although there were a couple of Goodreads groups aimed at NetGalley reviewers, there didn’t seem to be any for Edelweiss reviewers. So I took it upon myself to create one.

At the time, many bloggers seemed to think that Edelweiss was not as user-friendly as NetGalley, though many improvements have since been made. If you are struggling with your Edelweiss experience, or if you are an expert and want to share some tips on the Edelweiss interface, please join our group.

So, just in case you weren’t aware of the Edelweiss Reviewer’s Group, I thought I would cordially invite you to join us. As of today, we are 273 members strong.

At the present time, here are my Edelweiss stats:

As you can see, I’ve been greedy here as well. I just can’t seem to resist all those lovely books…

As such, in 2020, I plan to have a month where I read ONLY Edelweiss titles. If YOUR Edelweiss stats are suffering like mine are, why not grab the graphic below and have you own EVERYTHING EDELWEISS MONTH!

Here’s hoping that you all have a productive and joyous holiday season!

    I love that you have created this group! I need to be more active in it. I do pop in and read the conversations. It is a much needed group. I actually really disliked EW when I first started using it, but not I love it. I actually prefer it to NG!

  4. Actually, my Edelweiss stats are pretty good, but then… I wasn’t using it much to begin with. Now almost all the 2020 ARCs I have are from Edelweiss, and only one from NetGalley. I’m on your Goodreads group, and I’ll have a nose around, see if I can contribute.

    Thank you so much for creating this group, Lynne! ❤❤❤
    I am a member and I hope to see many more people join it.
    My stats are worse than yours – there were too many great titles in the Download section.

    • Thanks 😍 We have 3 new members since this post went up. It is comforting to know that I’m not the only one who has dismal stats on Edelweiss. Will you be doing an ‘Everything Edelweiss’ month in the new year?

  6. Count me as another who joined and then couldn’t figure out how to use it. Good for you that you started a group. Perhaps some of those problems can be worked out!

    Great idea Lynne. I just joined. Maybe I will do an Edelweiss month in January, but it won’t be all, maybe half.
