This week's list is the Top Ten Things That Make Your Life As A Reader/Book Blogger Easier
1. The Library's online hold and renewal system
It is such a treat when I check my emails in the morning to find a message from the library. If the message posted around midnight, I know that I will have some holds waiting for me when I get to the library. If the message posted closer to 6:00am, I need to log in and renew some books, because they're coming due!
2. Book Page
Another great thing about the library is this monthly publication. It is full of book reviews; I circle everything that catches my eye. I pass along copies to my mother-in-law.
3. Amazon's Lengthy Descriptions and Reviews
It's a wonderful rabbit hole to fall down. I can lose some serious time just browsing on Amazon. And then I'll click over to the library's website and put hold requests on books that have caught my eye on Amazon.
Like Facebook for Readers, only so much better.
5. Twitterature Link-Ups
Anne's monthly link-fest has been a great way to discover new titles and new blogs.
6. My Moleskine notebook
I have raved about this before, but it's where I keep all those lists of titles from Book Page, Amazon, etc. It's also where I jot down my Twitterature reviews. I just love pen and paper.
7. Amazon Prime
For those times when I just can't wait for the library--or when they don't have the title I want. Free two day shipping; free Kindle owner's lending library.
and because I could only think of eight,
8. The NPR Back Seat Book Club
This periodic series is a great resource for books for my kids (and for me).
