Today, I thought I would share a few book related apps that I use all the time.
Of course, this one is a given. I read quickly so I am on this app to track my books ALL THE TIME.
2. Google sheets
I have become OCD with tracking my books read. I like to keep this spreadsheet to keep track of details that I can't really keep track of on Goodreads. In addition to the columns shown, I also track the genre and whether it is young adult, adult, or new adult.
3. Serial Reader
I LOVE THIS APP! You know how classics can be so tough to read because of the language and the fact that all classics have a tendency to move really slowly? It always feels like they take me forever to read. This app has SO MANY classics on it and it basically divides all of them into easy ten or fifteen minute "issues." You pick a classic and just commit to reading ten minutes a day. How easy is that? I have already read several of them. It makes it so much easier to actually finish a classic! If you are like me and you want to expand your reading to include some classics, but you are intimidated, this app is perfect!
4. We Read Too
Just discovered this one and while it is a little limited, I am still loving the concept. It's basically a resource that provides names of books written by authors of color featuring characters of color! I love that, especially since it can be tough to find books with more diversity sometimes. Right now, they only have children's fiction and young adult fiction, but they are working to expand that. And they do have a section where you can submit your own recommendation.
What apps do you use on a regular basis? Are there any new ones you can recommend?
