Top Ten Things That Make Our Life As Readers and Book Bloggers Easier

This is our Top Ten Tuesday, which is hosted by The Broke & the Bookish.

This week's topic: Top Ten Seven Things That Make Our Life As Readers and Book Bloggers Easier

1. Goodreads - This is a must have for any reader or blogger. I use it to see what other's are reading, view book ratings, follow author's blogs, watch for new releases, update my reading status, keep track of what I want to read and what I have read. I love its features to compare books, recommended books, set goals, create lists, enter in giveaways, ect. 
Rachel's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)

2. Our eReaders - Melissa is a Nook girl. I am indecisive so instead of picking a Nook or Kindle, I decided not to decide by purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Tablet thus having the best of both worlds with Nook and Kindle apps. And Melissa now has a Kindle app on her Nook so we are both serious offender of free book downloads on Amazon and B&N.

3. Local Library - The library is my home away from home. I wouldn't be as well read if it wasn't for public libraries since about 2/3 of the books I read are from the library.

4. Bloglovin' - My bloglovin' feed gives me quick access to what my fellow bloggers are posting, reading and reviewing. It allows me to see more of my friend's blogs in less time so I can spend more time reading.  It is a win-win!

5. Book club - Book clubs give me a excuse to read books, drink wine and have a girl's night. Not that I need an excuse. They also introduce me to books I might have not discovered on my own.

6. Other Blogs - I love to explore fellow blogger's pages and find new books that need to be added to my TBR list. I also enjoy seeing the diversity in reviews, blog templates and posts. 

7. Fotor - This is a site I found that you can do picture collages and stitching. I especially like this when I have big hauls or large showcases. I haven't played around with it too much, but out of all the site I found this one has worked the best. Here is a quick example of what you can do on Fotor.

What other things make your life easier as a reader/book blogger? What was on your top ten this week?
