Top Ten Tuesday - Bookish Websites/Organizations/Apps


Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this feature includes random weekly top tens. This week's list is - Top Ten Bookish Websites/Organizations/Apps/Etc. I absolutely love my resources, and I would love to share them with you! Here's my list (in no particular order):
  1. Goodreads - This one is fairly obvious, or at least it will be a popular choice. It's a great resource to find new books to read, keep track of what you've read/want to read, and trade recommendations with friends. I adore Goodreads big time. Thank goodness there's an Android app now!
  2. NetGalley - This is a fantastic place to find free ARCs to read in exchange for reviews. Honest ones, obviously. They're based on approval, but as long as you're a blogger with a following and meet requirements, you should get them!
  3. Galley Grab - Simon & Schuster's Galley Grab is similar to NetGalley, but it's emailed to you. As long as they haven't already been published, they should be available to you. Love this one too!
  4. Barnes and Noble - I use this website a lot when gathering my information of publication dates, number of pages, age range, etc. I also buy from them because I get money back for my student loans.
  5. BookReporter - This is fabulous website for book clubs, book reviews, and info on movies made from books, among other things. They have giveaways and contests too. LOTS of bookish info.
  6. Free Book Friday - Sign up every week for a chance to win one of four free books: fiction, teen, romance, or indie.
  7. Local Libraries - Goodness, I don't know what I would do without my public libraries. I'm lucky to have two library districts close to home and work, with a total of over 20 libraries included in them. I also have a third library district with three more libraries. LOVE them!!
  8. Overdrive - This is usually accessed through your library, but it's digital access to ebooks and downloadable audio books. Good stuff!
  9. Springpad - This is not really book-related, but it is an app I use to keep my notes and reminders for posts, reviews, and such. The best part: it syncs with your phone if you have the app on there too.
  10. Book bloggers - They are absolutely my favorite organization in the world. I love this community. They're friendly, helpful, and made of awesome. <3

  1. These are great! Obviously I use a lot of them already, however I did not know about Free Fridays. Springpad sounds like a great app and I may give it a shot.

  4. I started with all the websites before they became as interactive as they are now. Wish I knew more about apps for books. Perhaps we'll have a Top Ten just for that one week.
