Top Ten Tuesday - Bookish Websites

Tuesday, June 28, 2011


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke and The Bookish

This week's prompt is: 

Other than blogs, there aren't a great many book-related websites that I visit regularly.

1: Goodreads I use to keep my recently-read lists semi-organized, manage widgets, and to post reviews.

2. NetGalley is fairly useful, although I only read a scattering of my books from it.

What else....Oh, I know!

3. Queens Library and 4: New York Public Library These are essential to my reading habit, for managing my request lists, renewals, etc.

5: Diamond Comics Distributors Has the lists of which comics are coming out which week.

6: Wikipedia is my go-to site for 'what else is this author known for/quick list of the books in this series/etc.'

7: Amazon, I'm on a lot to read reviews and shop for cheap used books or Kindle books.

8: The Strand is a giant bookstore in Manhattan, with an enormous selection that is always changing. The website is usually correct about what they have in stock, which is a good way to check on specific books before I go.

That's most of what I use with any frequency, anyway.

I've to NYC several times but never to the Strand. Next time!!!!! (I'm jealous) But I have been to Powells in Portland and it has a pretty gnarly reputation, too. They give you a map when you enter. Ha!
