Top 10 Bookish Technology Stuff

Question: Top 10 bookish technology stuff (websites, organizations, apps, etc.)

Answer: For us this week will be less about the listing and more about the learning.  Our knowledge of the online bookish world is, well, embarrassing.  Despite the rose colored hue now covering our face, we’ve got our pen (erasable) and notebook (with Phineas and Ferb cover art) in hand and are ready to learn about all the amazing bookish resources inside our computer monitor.

Honestly, we didn’t even want to include a list this week, but because we’re sticklers for the rules, below you will find our uninspired partial list: 

1.      Goodreads
2.      Shelfari
3.      Book Bloggers
4.      BBC Big read
5.      Ummm???

Yep... that’s about all we got for this week...

Have a great week and head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!


  1. There certainly are more great websites for books out there than I knew about.

    Here's my list of favorite bookish spots: Top Ten Bookish Websites.

  2. Excellent choices, especially as long as you like to use them. :) Here are my Top Ten Favorite Bookish Sites for this week.


  3. Today's meme has made my day! I am finding many great book related links. Thanks!

    Here is my Top Ten post!

  4. Thanks for the BBC Big Read! That's a new one to me!

  5. I've decided to use this week's assignment as an opportunity to compile a list of useful sites for me so I am "stealing" from others and adding them to my list for use in the future.

  6. I agree with you that this week's topic has me excited to learn about some new sites! You have some good ones on your list. I haven't used Ning too much yet, but I know there's lots more to explore. Will have to check out BBC Big Read next.

  7. I forgot to put it on my list, but Audible is a popular one -- lot of audio books, read by some amazing narrators. I'm also intrigued by Book Crossing. No worries about having a short list -- just leaves room for more fun stuff!

  8. I'll have to check out that BBC one. Great list! Short but all the essential ones are on there.

  9. Kindles and nooks? never thought I would read anything but a "real" book until I got my Kindle 1. Now I have the latest generation Kindle and am still in love. I also love Library Thing.
