10 Must-Have Apps for Book Lovers

Posted on

st because you don’t have a book on doesn’t mean you have to stop reading. All you need is your phone. Even if you’ve left your Kindle behind, you can pick right up where you left off with the Kindle app. And there’s a whole new world of apps that give you an experience unlike what reading a paperback offers.

You can read chapters of a new fan-favorite thriller series and comment on it, all in the same app. Or try social networking apps dedicated to bookworms and use smart apps to find your next read. Here are some great choices for both iOS and Android.

1. Wattpad

If you’re tired of reading paperback books, you should check out Wattpad. It’s a new platform for the digital age where writers can directly connect with their readers. Wattpad brings a community element to reading. You can interact with other readers by commenting on a certain section, a sentence, or a phrase inside a book.

Every genre takes the user to a new community to explore or receive inspiration. The app encourages you to participate in writing contests, increasing your fan base, or be a part of the app’s selected stories. Wattpad will help you go from a reader to a writer as well. Using the Wattpad community, you can build an audience for yourself.

2. OverDrive

OverDrive lets you carry your local library in your pocket. Why buy a book from Amazon when you can borrow a digital copy of it from your local library?

OverDrive has managed to shift offline libraries into the online world. The catalog differs based on your location or the content your library offers.

And it’s not just ebooks; you can listen to audiobooks as well. All of this is available with your local library card. If you like, it’s also possible to use the app as an alternative to Netflix and Amazon Prime to watch movies, videos, or TV shows if the library provides them.
