TOP TEN TUESDAY: Things That Make My Life as a Reader/Blogger Easier
Hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.
THINGS THAT MAKE MY LIFE AS A READER/BLOGGER EASIER
Definitely my number one answer! I don't know what I would do with my Goodreads account which I use to organize the books that I've read, reviewed, bought, etc.
This is a new-to-me website that I discovered in the last days of GFC. I love the way that it helps me organize the blogs that I follow and the way that they are displayed.
3. Public Library
I love to buy books as much as the next bibliophile, but sometimes money gets tight. In those times, I turn to my wonderful public library to help with my book addiction.
4. Book Depository
After my local Borders closed, I turned to this online bookstore for most of my purchases. Best part is that they don't charge shipping!
5. Paperback Swap
Another way that I increase my TBR shelf. A great way to get rid of books I don't want anymore and then find fun used books.
I am still a physical book fan first, but I definitely love the convenience of my e-reader. It is just so much fun to go online, order a book at 2 am, and start reading it immediately. Plus it helped me discover some of my favorite indie authors!
I used to dog-ear book pages to mark my spot until about five years ago. Since then, I have become obsessed with my bookmarks. My memory is definitely not what it used to be so, without them, I would always be lost.
I have really gotten into audiobooks in the past few years and this was a great find! I love seeing that email telling me I have a new credit plus their selection is amazing!
I am not a prolific tweeter, but I am trying to learn. It is a great way to see what is going on in the book world anywhere.
I am not obsessed with gathering ARCs, but it does help to improve my skills as a blogger to work with them.
