Penguin, NetGally announce partnership

Netgalley have just announced that in late 2011 Penguin will start distributing digital galleys through NetGalley. This will give Penguin access to over 19,000 reviewers, media contacts, booksellers, librarians, educators and other professional readers.

"I’m very excited about our partnership with NetGalley," Matthew Boyd, Publishing Coordinator at Penguin Group (USA) said. "Providing books to readers in as many formats as possible has always been important to us, and NetGalley now allows us to accomplish this at the galley stage. The partnership also furthers Penguin's commitment to the environment, as we strive to find eco-friendly solutions at every phase of our publishing process."

Readers will be able to download the galleys to their computer, and then transfer them to ereaders that support DRMed  Epub and PDF.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
