Online Resources for Book Lovers

Goodreads. I post all my reviews here and link to them through my blog. It’s nice to have everything in one spot.

LibraryThing. It’s one of the first spots I found and it’s still a sentimental favorite.

Canva. I enjoy making graphics for my posts. Canva is delightful.

My online library catalogs and WorldCat. I live in a small town just outside a major metropolitan area in the US. I can easily access a dozen city and county libraries nearby. And I can easily see where I can find books close to me via WorldCat.

Overdrive. Several of the nearby libraries where I have cards allow me to check out books through Overdrive. I relied on Overdrive almost exclusively during the early part of the pandemic.

Blogs. And my blog. And your blog. And all the other blogs I love.

I don't need anything more than these. Do I?

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.  


  1. Canva is such a good pick! I need to use it more often. :)

  2. I did not post this week, because I would just be repeating everyone else's list. I am like you, Deb, my library, blogs, Goodreads, Amazon are my go tos.

  3. The only one of these that I regularly use is Goodreads. And of course the blogs. Thanks for spotlighting the others. I need to check them out.

  4. Goodreads has definitely been popular in the lists today! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  5. I love Canva!

    Here’s my list—I went rogue this week. https://fiftytwo.blog/2021/10/19/ttt-books-i-loved-but-will-probably-wont-re-read/

    Happy TTT!

  6. Canva is a great tool for bloggers.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  7. I use Overdrive and Hoopla a whole lot too---especially for audiobooks!

  8. Canva really is a great website! It makes graphic design so easy.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!

  9. I'm so glad you included Canva, which I am just getting into as a graphic creator site. They really do make things pretty simple and they look good.

  10. If you think you have all you need then you probably do :) I am enjoying finding other sites I didn't know existed. Here is my link: https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2021/10/top-ten-tuesday-online-resources-for.html

  11. Dear Debbie! No, you don't need anything else! I've recently became better acquainted with CANVA and now we are the best of friends. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I've read and reviewed a book that makes me think of you so much! I'm sure you will love it. I will attach my review for you.

    Hope you are having a good week!

  12. I finally started using Canva last year and enjoy it. I even use it when I need to create some quick flyers for work.

  13. Probably not, I follow the same ones (not the library thing, but we have a similar on-line service in Sweden). I recently checked out one site, recommended by Jack in the Books (a book vlog). It is called The Story Graph https://www.thestorygraph.com . I have not yet had too much time to look into it, but I registered at least.


I love to hear what you think.
