The Book Nook


So here I have all sorts of things for reading. If you check out the quests you will find reviews on the books I read, there’s also a ‘Recommendation card, a template for writing reviews,  and my reading list (of books I have previously read), and if you are in college or have kids in school, There’s also  ‘The Ultimate Book Report’  with loads of information to help get an A on your next report!

My Reading Quests

started in 2013 when I needed to read a load of Series so I challenged myself to read mostly only books in series and to try and read 50 books. I fell short on the 50 but you can see all the books I’ve read & their reviews on the noted pages. You can also just hover on the booknook tab in the menu

A friend Nancy on Facebook told me about this

Fictfact.com is a site (also on FB) where they have “tons” of series listed either by series title, author, book name, whatever. Check it out. It’s fun to use. Not the fastest site, but they’re always working on it and it’s always improving. They’re also open to suggestions and quick to add books that they miss or new series you suggest.

Read for free with    inkitt.com   You can also find lots of contemporary stories in the horror section, and there are great discussions going on between authors and readers/reviewers. There’s also an option to write your own!
