Top 10 Bookish Websites...

Top Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps, etc...  as organised by The Broke and Bookish

I had to really think about this one.  Some of these are relatively new to me and others I have been visiting and using for a much longer time.

1  Virtual Library - this is the online Northern Ireland library which allows me to renew books, search for books and to make reservations of books that I want to read.  Then all I need to do is actually visit the library to collect the book as they email me when it has arrived...  so cool...

2  Amazon.co.uk - yep... I use this website all the time for tracking down out of print books especially when I have read most of the others in a series...

3  Goodreads - love this...  always helpful to read reviews when I am deciding what I want to read next especially if I haven't read anything by that author before.

4  Red Room - great site with information about authors and ideas for blogging.

5  Kindle App for Mac - handy now and again to be able to download a kindle book and read it.

6  The Leaky Cauldron - always enjoy this site...  yep I am a Harry Potter fan but then who isn't?

7  What Should I Read Next?  - useful ideas...  not that I don't already have a monster to be read pile...

8  Audible UK - I love listening to audio books when I am busy doing other things...

I was running out of ideas at this point... when I decided to look at other people's top 10's and immediately joined up for these two...

9  StumbleUpon - I love the whole concept of this site... going to be back lots of times...

10  Audiobooksync - cool... great to find out about these free audio book downloads now rather than at the end of the summer...  downloaded Shiver which has been sitting in my to be read pile for too long and now I shall listen to it instead.

Now, I think I shall start listening to Shiver while I get on with some work...

StumbleUpon is awesome. Also, I've never heard of RedRoom and just checked it out. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing!

I love using the virtual library too - everything is so simple and streamlined now. Red Room and StumbleUpon are two sites I want to check out. Thanks for sharing! Enjoy Shiver :) I hear the sequel Linger is a good audiobook too.
