My favorite library buddy is my Good Reads app on my phone. I'm a huge fan of Good Reads (find me here!), but I seriously love their app. See, ever since I was a young girl I had this thing about checking out library books: I loved watching the librarians scan the books into the system. I always wanted to do that! When I go to the library now, there's times that I come across a book and though I want to read it, it's just not a good time, so instead...I take out my phone and scan the book's ISBN into my Good Read's app! It's just that easy and just that cool. Good Reads also gives you suggestions on what to read next, and you can organize your books into lists, which makes looking for books fun and easy.
Call me old school, but I would prefer a real book over an e-book any day! There's nothing better than crawling into bed at the end of the day and cracking open that spine...which do you prefer, e-books or real books?
