[Top Ten Tuesday] #21

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.

This Weeks Top Ten
[Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier]

-Used Bookstores-

There is no better place to find books for my shelf. I love new books, but I also can't resist the call of a previously loved book. I am not one to bring in books to the store, but I definitely buy them. I also like to go to used bookstores because I want to have this option in the future, and I hate seeing more and more bookstores going out of business.

I probably wouldn't have started reviewing books, or this blog, if it wasn't for Goodreads. By far the easiest way for me to see what's coming next and to keep track of all my books[and the ones I can't wait to read]. GR also played a huge part in introducing me to a lot of other bloggers I love.

Facebook is probably the best way to communicate with new followers and see what everyone is excited about, and get people excited about us.

I have a love/hate relationship with my Nook, but it has opened me up to all new possibilities. There are a ton of indie books I would have never read without it and that alone makes it worth it. It also feeds my addiction to book buying[.99 books add up!].

I'm relatively new to Bloglovin', but I love having all the blogs I follow there for me to scroll through easily. I love checking in on who's reading what and how they feel about it. If it's easy for me to use than it's definitely easy for my followers!

and last but not least... 

-Indie Authors-
Honestly, Indie Authors are our world. Not only do you work with them, but you get to be family like friends with them. I can't tell you how many smart, intelligent, beautiful authors I have become friendly with. It's surreal, and makes me feel like a rock star. Truth is, YOU'RE the ROCK STAR. We're just your loyal, loving, book groupies. The relationships built will be ever lasting.

This has to be the best community of people I've ever met. Yes, sometimes there are a few out there that aren't that great... but for the most part, everyone is so kind, helpful, and giving.

  1. Great list!! I love my eReader and don't know how I lived without it. Do you get the free eBooks from the library? I always check the library before buying a book unless it is one I REALLY want to own.

    I haven't tried Bloglovin', but I guess I need to check it out. It is on a lot of the Top Ten lists this week.
