There’s a certain romance in reading and it’s honestly one of my favourite things to do. I mean, there’s nothing better than curling up with a good book at the end of a long day. Since I’m a high-flying professional who is constantly on the go, *cough* humble brag *cough* I think that the invention of reading apps, like the ones below, are the best thing to happen to books, since the printing press.
Scribd is essentially like Netflix for books. Boasting one of the most extensive collections of not only books, but also audio books, magazines, and documents, Scribd is heaven for those who love literature. Although the service is subscription based, I think it’s worth the money, considering the sheer volume of things you can choose from and the fact that it’s waaay cheaper than buying a book every fortnight.
Goodreads is one of my favourite apps because it’s kind of like a virtual version of a book club with friends. Acting as a social network for readers, you can catalogue what you’ve read here, and build your to-read list based on your friends’ recommendations. You can read honest reviews and discover your next favourite read.
Wattpad is the perfect place to find your next favourite author, since the app is home to user-generated articles, books, and stories. Apart from that, the availability of classics as well as teen fiction and everything in between makes this the perfect destination for your next literary adventure.
