|Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Do come join the fun...|
The Broke and the Bookish are looking for our favorite "bookish websites, organizations, apps, etc."
1. I use exactly one reading application: Goodreads. Are you on Goodreads? Come be my friend. :)
2. and 3. I participate in two literary discussion sites: The Hog's Head, where I'm honored to count myself among the Blogengamot, and school with the Hogwarts Professors.
4. and 5. I recommend two sites primarily focused on book reviews: 1) Books Kids Like, which covers a vast array of material, and 2) for conservative parents on the never-ending quest for Safe Reading Material, Litland Reviews.
6. For those who like darker literature—dystopian, Gothic, horror, myth, etc.—I subscribe to Redecorating Middle-Earth in Early Lovecraft, the blog of Dr. Amy Sturgis. I'm picky about my dark stuff, but I do enjoy her blog.
7. The book-related site I probably use most: My local library's website, complete with catalog and online request capability. It doesn't have the best search engine on the internet, but it's still wonderful. While I can't recommend mine to people who don't live in Bellingham, I wholeheartedly recommend everyone looking up their own library on the web.
8. Also, I participate every Tuesday in this meme by the ever-delightful The Broke and The Bookish. :)
Scanning through my Google Reader, it looks like most of the rest of what I read is more writing-focused...
What bookish sites do you use or visit most?
Does trolling Amazon looking for new books to buy count as frequenting a bookish website?ReplyDelete
I'm on Goodreads, & I think we're already friends on that. :)
Also ditto on The Hogshead & Hogwarts Professor.
I also don't know if Books on the Knob counts either.ReplyDelete
Haha, George. I almost put Amazon. :DReplyDelete
Books on the Knob totally counts!
