top ten online resources for book lovers
posted by soe 2:06 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share our favorite online resources for book lovers:

  1. Goodreads (I know they’re now owned by Amazon and that there are other sites that do the same thing of helping you organize what you’ve read and what you want to read. But until the former fact gets too obnoxious, I’m not likely to seek out the latter.)
  2. Book Riot (Lots of good articles about book-related topics)
  3. Out of Print (Lots of bookish clothing options)
  4. Etsy (Again, you can find lots of bookish tchotchkes here.)
  5. Book Series in Order (Because a lot of times, it matters, plotwise)
  6. Does the Dog Die? (Do books with certain tropes stress you out? Do you ever get to a point in a novel where you’re worried that X is going to happen — and you’d rather not keep reading if it does? If that’s the case, this is the site for you.)
  7. Library Extension (Install this extension on your web browser and it will automatically tell you if your library (or libraries) has a book that’s mentioned on a page.)
  8. Overdrive (Access to lots of audiobooks and e-books with your library card.
  9. largehearted boy (If you love books and music, this is a great site for you. The guy who runs it invites authors to share playlists for their books, provides daily links on the two topics, and, between November and January, exhaustively links to best-of lists.)
  10. IndieBound (Want to find a local bookstore to where you live or where you’ll be visiting? Then this is the site for you!)

And while it’s pretty likely she’s already on your radar if you’ve arrived here from her link-up, I’d be remiss not to include That Artsy Reader Girl on my list, for the best weekly book meme, her continuation of #TBTBSanta and her #GiftmasinJuly exchanges, and her daily review of books.
