Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is my favourite online bookish things. I could only think of four today that I really wanted to talk about, but further ado we’ll get into them.
In Line With Annemieke
I couldn’t resist the chance to talk about my lovely friend, Annemieke’s (from A Dance With Books) Etsy shop. She makes the cutest little bookmarks (and other art prints), some of which include her gorgeous little kitties. She’s also an amazing blogger, so you should check out both her Etsy and her blog.
Apps are considered online things, right? Well, Bookly is the only bookish app I use every single day. It’s just a small little app that lets you track your reading—how many minutes you read a book, or per day and etc. or how many pages and things like that. I’ve been using it for almost two years now and it’s really helped me keep track of all the things I’m reading. I’m one of those readers who has like a million things on the go at once so it makes it much easier!
One of my favourite online bookstores is Amplify Bookstore. This is an online bookstore based in Melbourne and run by Marina and Xuan. They sell only sell books by authors of colour but they cover a wide variety of genres—from poetry to non-fiction to YA and more. They’re one of my favourite stores because they have an incredible range and usually have quite a few books that just aren’t available in other bookstores here. Highly recommend following them on social media because they put out some great recommendation lists as well.
Off The Book Pages
Another of my favourite online bookstores is Off the Book Pages. This is also an Aussie run store but this one sells indie and self-pubbed books. It can be such a struggle to get those kinds of books here so I’m so thankful to Brit who owns the store for making it possible to get all these wonderful books and to support those authors.
That’s it for my list today. What are some of your favourite online bookish thing?
