We all love a good phone app. Take a break from TikTok or Candy Crush with these apps made for readers. From book club apps to reading trackers, we’re sure you’ll find one that’ll make reading just a bit (or a lot!) more enjoyable.
An oldie but a goodie, if there ever was one! Goodreads is the ultimate site and for book lovers. Filled with reviews, book recommendations, and even giveaways, it’s an excellent way to discover new books and share your love of books with your friends on the platform. You can even test your luck and enter giveaways for your chance to win free books, including advance reader copies!
Imagine if Goodreads and Instagram had a baby…it might assemble something like Litsy. Litsy is essentially a social media site made just for book lovers. Readers share short posts consisting of blurbs, photos, quotes, and reviews for books. It’s a great way to see what others are reading and connect with others in a close-knit, like-minded online community.
We all know how complicated it can be managing a book club. Bookclubz makes it so much easier through its very clever app. Sign up your book club for free and get better organized! Bookclubz can be used to coordinate membership, create polls for book picks and meeting times, schedule meetings, track RSVPs, send messages, rate books, save books and get inspiration for your next read.
If you’ve been meaning to read more, Bookly is for you! It’s a reading tracker that doubles as a motivator with monthly or yearly goals you can set as well as achievements to unlock. Bookly allows you to scan your books (or search them for them) to add to your account. You can track reading (including time!), type in quotes and thoughts and see insightful data to help you read more.
If you haven’t checked out Wattpad yet, you’re really missing out. You can join the community for free to access countless original stories in any genre imaginable. In this online community centered around storytelling, you’ll also be able to connect on a more personal level with the authors, too. Lastly, if you’re an aspiring writer yourself, it’s a great platform to publish your work to get some eyeballs on it!
