New Toys

Big props to The Broke and The Bookish for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday list featuring bookish websites, apps and organizations. They’ve given me some new toys to check out!

I’m super excited to check out Audible. I’ve downloaded the app for my phone and can’t wait to start listening.

I’ve signed up for the Shelf Awareness newsletter, which promises to deliver info on the best 25 books coming out each week.

NetGalley really makes me want an e-reader. You can get advance reader copies of books from this site, but only if you have a reader.

At What Should I Read Next, you can get recommendations for your next read by typing in a book title or author that you really like. (I think my Goodreads to-read list is about to get longer!)

Picking up on the Top Ten Tuesday meme, All The Books I Can Read listed FictFact, “dedicated to helping you read your fiction book series in order.” Hallelujah!

Over at The Phantom Paragrapher, I discovered BookSneeze and The B&B Media Group. Similar to NetGalley, these sites offer advanced reader copies, but deal only with Christian fiction and non-fiction. Books are provided in e-reader and print (i.e., “real book”) format.

Do you use any of these toys? Going to try any? Let me know!
