Weekly Meme: Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps. Etc.

June 28, 2011 6 comments

The weekly Top Ten Tuesday topic of the week (via the Broke and Bookish blog) is:

Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps. Etc.

It’s my first time to join this meme, and I’m definitely checking out other people’s lists. I just know this one is going to be a goldmine! 🙂 Okay, other than blogs, here are some book related websites I always check out!

  1. AMAZON (Free for Kindle Bestseller List) – because I make it my business to find out what’s free for my Kindle! 🙂
  2. Audiobook Community – They hold a SyncSummer every year and offer two free YA audiobooks weekly (until August 17th!)
  3. BoingBoing (Reviews) – This is a well known aggregator website, but my favorite is when they feature reviews. Majority of the book reviews are written by Cory Doctorow (the SciFi/fantasy author) and I get a lot of ‘must reads’ from his recommendations.
  4. Baen Free Library – Yup, all free SciFi books from Baen! Great way to find another new fave author.
  5. MobileRead.Com’s Patricia Clark Memorial Library – Lovingly edited public domain books by book lovers from the MobileRead forum, shared freely to anyone interested in major book formats
  6. HarperCollins (BrowseInside) – They have a bookshelf where you can have full access to certain really popular books (i.e. Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, etc), the only catch is you have to read it online
  7. Hachette Book Group (Open Access) – This is similar to HarperCollins’ BrowseInside, you get full access to certain books but you can only read them online
  8. Fantastic Fiction – Super helpful when you’re reading a series that’s already on it’s nth book. Quick book info with painless searching.
  9. Inkmesh – Easy place to look for free eBooks for the Nook, the Sony, etc  (like I said, I make it my business to find out any freebies!)
  10. Dropbox – Okay, this online ‘cloud locker’ is not necessarily bookish, except that the way I use it is definitely bookish. I only upload books to the account and I can read the books anytime on my iPod Touch! If you don’t have one yet, sign up for a FREE account!

(p.s.s. If it’s your first time to visit my blog, please have a look around especially if you read digital books. I post a lot of (legal) freebies and Kindle bargain books that I find here)
