Anyone who’s of the bookish ilk will understand that any good resource of the bookworm variety is a good thing. This is why today, we’re chatting about good book resources, just because it’s fun. While I cannot speak to the helpfulness of many of these, because I’ll be honest, I don’t use “resources” much, I did think they still seemed fun and I wanted to share them in case they may help you.

Below, you’ll find websites and physical books to help in your reader life, but whatever you find, the goal is, hopefully, that something is a resource for you to find useful. Let’s move on and take a look.
PS; Just want to give a shout-out and thanks to anyone who left a thoughtful comment on my ‘Reader Pet Peeves’ post. I’m so glad to know I’m not alone in my read-what-you-want mentality. I kinda’ thought I was! So, thanks to everyone. I loved reading your comments and *finally* sat down to respond to them all.
GOOD BOOK RESOURCES
1: BOOK JOURNAL
I’m not into book journaling, but I do look at them now and again and think they look really nice and you can find them on places like Etsy. This rust colored one is really pretty, simple and definitely something I’d buy if I was using one.
This isn’t a “resource” in the way I’m thinking of them, but books can be one for sure – especially if you read books that give facts rather than something you want to be true. However, I’m trying to find my way back to books because this culture of you-cannot-read-this-because-of-x or you-cannot-write-this-because-it-triggers-y affect me. It’s sad that we don’t take better care and responsibility of ourselves without impressing that on everyone around us. That kind of mindset is, in many instances, causing others to not be “ok,” which is then counterproductive to the messaging of those wanting to ban x, y or z.
Hesitating adding this because honestly, I rarely use Goodreads these days. I got logged out a while back (just because that’s what sites do is log you out after so long) and I don’t care. I haven’t taken the time to dig out my log-in info and then to update my status or add books I’ve read. Of course, part of this could be I’m just not reading, but also, I just don’t have the same feeling for Goodreads anymore. Not because of the people (who I chat with), but because of the site itself and just in general, too.
4: INDIE BOOKSTORES
These may not be resources in the way of Goodreads or Libib app, but I do try, more recently, to order from small bookstores. My reasons for this are different than most people, but I’m glad there’s some out there even if it does hurt a little more to purchase from them because they have to charge more as well as shipping costs.
5: LIBIB APP
I used to use this app ALL THE TIME. At this point I’d probably need to re-load it with a new password set up since it’s been that long since I actually used it. My use for it was to catalog my books (on my shelf) and it was SO easy, convenient and even fun. Maybe one of these days I’ll update it – and really, I do need to unhaul some books (again).
Yes, this is my slim and pathetic list of bookish things! Tell me all the ones I’m neglectfully MISSING! What are you favorite (or non-favorite!) book resources? Which of these do you use? Are there any you think are unnecessary? Comment all of your thoughts down in the comments! I look forward to chatting.
