Top Ten Tuesday - Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier


http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Qhvjlr1CbeE/UclmxfbZLLI/AAAAAAAAANE/9od-V-aMUic/s200/toptentuesday2.jpgTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish and each week there's a different topic. As always, even if you can't think of 10, do as many as you can. This week the topic is things that make your life as a reader/book blogger easier.


Here are mine:


Kindle - Perfect for travelling and holidays, I can have lots of books with me that take up hardly any space. Also I can read books from NetGalley on it.

Goodreads - Great for book recommendations as well as being able to rate and review books etc. Also the app on my phone is very useful when in bookshops and I can't remember everything on my wishlist, can look it up quickly.

My Book Journal - As well as the main section for my thought on books it also has sections I use for my TBR/Wishlist. Can look through it quickly when deciding what to read next.

Local Library - I can suggest and reserve books for free as well as borrow them, saves me a lot of money

Amazon - I have discovered books with "customers who bought this item also bought" and also like looking through the future releases section.

eReaderIQ - A great site that emails you when kindle ebooks you've added drop in price, means you don't have to keep checking your wishlist on Amazon.

Fantastic Fiction  - Can look up authors books and when they were published, very handy if I want to read a series in the correct order or see other books by an author I've just discovered.

NetGalley - Only joined earlier this year but been lucky to get review copies of some interesting books and because of this I started my blog.

Tablet - Bought this last month and it meant I could post reviews on my blog while on holiday instead of waiting until I returned home.

Memes - There are some great memes I participate in on my blog, as well as Top Ten Tuesday others I like include Book Blogger Hop, Waiting On Wednesday and Friday Finds.

  1. I agree with so many on your list. I love Amazon, Goodreads and NetGalley. My Kindle is also so useful and so are the weekly memes I participate in!

  2. Good choices, and I agree with most on my list. I didn't know about ReaderIQ, and it allowed for me to choose Kindle U.S. so I appreciate that new tip!
