Book Apps

VQ Staff - Friday, July 11, 2014

You love reading, but sometimes you get stumped on what to read next. There are apps for that! Here are a few free apps to try out:


Novel Engagement is a brand new app launched yesterday by Romance Writers of America. It is a "book discovery app, focused exclusively on romance novels, that helps readers discover new romance novels and connect with authors."


In the app, users can follow their favorite authors to stay up-to-date on book releases and find author events near them. Users are also able to manage their reading list and participate in contests!


Overdrive is a fantastic app to utilize with your library card! With your library account, you are able to download and put e-books on hold. Once on your phone, tablet, or e-reader, you can read without worry, there is no late fees because titles will automatically be returned when they are due. Each library system  has their own collection of e-books available, you can view King County Library System's e-book library by clicking here.


Goodreads is not only a website, it is an app ready for on-the-go recommendations and reviews! This app includes the cool feature of a barcode scanner to allow you to add books to your 'to read' list with ease. You can also "see what your friends are reading, write book reviews, and keep track of what you want to read" by searching through one of the most popular book reviewing website.


What are your favorite book apps to use?
