Top 10 Tuesday

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top 10 Things that make my life as a reader/book blogger easier.

1. Goodreads
This helps me to keep track of the books I want to read, I have read and for finding out about new books. Before I heard of goodreads I had paper all over the place with lists of books I wanted and I would never have heard or read of half of the books I have read over the last few years. They have a great giveaway section and I have won and read some of the books I have won from there.

2. My Bookshelves
I love my bookshelves because I have my books organised by author so it is easy to find the book I want plus I have that many I never run out of choices.

3. The Library
My library is great if they don't have something in then they will order it for you to read. I have been a member of my library since I was 5. I may not use it much but I know that if I want something different to read then I have the library.

4. Rafflecopter
This is great for giveaways, I may not hold many but I do have a big pile of books I am sorted threw that I want to give away.

5. Other Bloggers
I love the fact that there are so many other book bloggers out there and 80% of them read different books than me but their reviews help me to decide if I want to read that book or not, this also helps me to get more interested in different genres.

6. Creative Writing Course
I did a creative writing course a few years back and many people who were also on the course suggested different books this is how I ended up reading My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult. It also helped me learn more about different genres and got me reading more.

7. Twitter
I started following many, many authors on Twitter, and by doing so I discovered a whole host of new other authors and books.

8. Excel
This is one of the best computer software's I have found for me to be available to help organize my books and be able to see what I have read and to keep track of who has borrowed my books.

9. Amazon
I found this is a great place to buy my books as they are cheap and they have a lot of free books for the kindle.

10. Authors, publishers etc
If it wasn't for the authors I wouldn't have any books to read so if it wasn't for them then I wouldn't be a reader and I wouldn't have this blog.

  1. I like your post because you have some great suggestions and one is a creative writing course that opened your eyes to other genres. Thanks for sharing these, food for thought.
