The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Do you use Goodreads as the main website to keep track of what you have read? If not, please share what you use?

Yes, Goodreads is the leading website I use to keep track of books. I’ve tried other things like journals and an excellent spreadsheet developed by another book blogger, and, though these things have their benefits, ultimately, Goodreads has always been more accessible for me to use. I don’t use Goodreads in any complex ways. But NetGalley links to it – albeit with a few kinks- so that’s convenient for me.
I also have another app called Readerly that I’ve been trying out. I’m not sure if there are any benefits over Goodreads at this point, though. At the bottom of this post, I have included step-by-step screens of what you do in Readerly. I do have three invite codes that I’ve never used if anyone is interested. It is free though there is a pay option – just like many other apps – and you can download your books read from Goodreads into Readerly. Here is Reader Voracious’ look at Readerly and all about it.
