I’m always on the lookout for books. But until recently, for me that meant going to Dymocks and looking through the books there. Books have adapted to live in places other than the bookstore. I know of two places. So where to hunt for a book?
Many of you booklovers probably already know about Goodreads. This website is technically an online dictionary but for books. I joined in 2011 and my reading has never been better. Goodreads not only gives you a way to sort your books into virtual shelves, but you also gives you recommendations, holds giveways and its a place for all readers around the world to discuss their opinions. So if you haven’t gotten an account, get one now.
2. Online Bookstores
In an age where everyone and everything has exposure to technology, it’s not surprising that bookstores have plugged in to the web as well. My personal favourite is The Book Depository because they sell books cheaper than normal bookstores and they also ship free, which is always a plus. There’s also online stores that sell eBooks which get sent to your reading device straight away, if you don’t want to wait (which always happens).
So there’s my two ways of hunting books online. Do you have any other ways of finding your next to read?
