Top Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps, Etc.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish!

Top Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps, Etc.

10. Bookperk- this site offers cool deals on books with swag of some sort.  I haven't actually ordered anything yet, but I'm keeping my eyes open for something fun.

9. OverDrive- I attempted to listen to an audiobook that my library offered through OverDrive, but I kept falling asleep in bed and I kept getting distracted while driving, so no audiobooks right now.  This website also distributes eBooks.

8.  AdLit.org- As a high school teacher, I love this website.  It has lots of useful resources for literacy education.

7.  Amazon- I know that there is controversy surrounding Amazon because it sells books so cheap, but for a perpetually broke college/grad school student, I couldn't have done it without Amazon.  I also have a student Prime membership, so I get free two day shipping.  We'll see if I continue to use Amazon once I can actually afford to pay "real prices" for books...

6.  Net Galley- I love eBooks because they take up so much LESS SPACE.

5. and 4. The iBooks App and the Kindle App on my phone- Again, eBooks rock!  These apps make it possible for me to download books with no shipping costs and no paper waste and read them on the go!

3. Pottermore- I'm so excited for this!!

2. My Local Library's Website- my librarians are so patient with me, always requesting books. 

1. Goodreads- I almost never write a post without double checking some detail on Goodreads.  I'm also really enjoying the challenge I'm slowly working on!

If you stop by from the Linky, be sure to leave a comment so I can return the visit!


  1. Today's meme has made my day! I am finding many great book related links. Thanks!

    Here is my Top Ten post!

  2. I buy from Amazon a lot. I feel a little guilty, but it's the best deal.

    Here's my Top Ten List of Bookish Websites.
