Recently I was trying to figure out some blog posts I could do when I remembered reading someone’s post on what apps they use that are book related. I can’t remember whose post it was because I saw it sometime last year and I didn’t even think to write it down or anything so sorry about that. If you search book apps on wordpress it will pull up several posts on this subject.
Anyways I remembered that post and I thought it would be fun to show y’all the apps I use that are book related while also getting in a little self promo. Shameless I know. If you aren’t already following me on some of these platforms I would love for you to follow me. I will follow back. Ok so lets get into what apps I use shall we.
I am going to start with one of the most obvious ones and that is Goodreads. I’ve been a member of Goodreads since 2013 although I wasn’t as active back then as I am now. I’ve probably gotten more active in the last 3 years I would say. I love using Goodreads to keep up with all the books I have read or want to read and I love that you can make different shelves to keep up with everything as well.
Next up I have the Kindle app. I have always just used Kindle. I know there’s other ways to get ebooks but I have never tried them. I had a hard enough time learning everything about the kindle and honestly I’m probably still learning.
While Twitter isn’t a book app I use it mainly for book things. I follow a lot of book bloggers and authors I share what books I am reading plus my goodreads is linked to it as well. I do share other stuff from time to time but it’s mostly all bookish.
I am not the greatest when it comes to Instagram. My pictures aren’t that great which makes me not want to use it but I have recently started getting back into it so we will see how that goes.
This is my least used app out of all of them. I hardly ever get on Facebook anymore but every time I post on my blog it is linked to my facebook page so my posts are always shared on there at least.
This app is Book Breeze and I only ever use it when I need to keep up with how long I have read. So far I’ve only used it while participating in the 24in48 readathon.
Last but not least is Scribd. This is a subscription service where you can listen to audiobooks and read ebooks etc. I tried the free trial for audible and ultimately decided against keeping that one because not only do you have to pay the what was it like $15 or something but you also have to pay for the books you want to read but you do get a free credit every month. My friend Noriko informed me of Scribd so I tried the free trial and decided to keep it. It’s $9 a month but you get unlimited amount of audiobooks without having to pay anymore. Like I said there’s other things available through this subscription but I only use it for listening to audiobooks.
I also have the audible app but like I mentioned I decided not to keep that so as soon as I finish listening to IT I will be deleting it. Also another app I have but didn’t really mention for obvious reasons is WordPress. You are obviously reading this on WordPress so I didn’t think I needed to talk much about it or leave links.
So there you have it all of the apps I use for all my bookish needs. Are there any apps that I didn’t mention that you think I should definitely try? I would love any suggestions. Also don’t forget to follow me on any of those platforms if you aren’t already and I will follow you back.
