Readerly?
An ethical, independent alternative to Goodreads.
- They make book discovery better for readers and fairer for authors by challenging the ever-growing influence Amazon has over our reading choices.
- Their mission is to help readers discover great books and support the creators, publishers, and booksellers who nourish the writer-to-reader chain.
Ending the generic 5-star rating system
It’s 2021, and the world is still using a 5-star rating system to grade highly subjective work. Too many excellent books go undiscovered because they weren’t written for the majority and received below the dreaded 3.5 star average. 
They treat readers as individuals, tailoring the platform to your unique tastes. Instead of giving books a single rating, we show the percentage of people similar to you who recommended the book.
Are you interested and would like to read more about this app? Take a look here.
If you’d like to have the code for an invitation to the app, let me know! I have a multi-use code I can share with others, just send me an ask.

Read. Read. Read from a paper, from a screen, or from a speaker, it’s all reading. Read out loud or in your head. Read to your mum, brother, sister, grandma, read just to yourself and your dog. Read. Read your favourite genres or branch out. Travel to the past, the future or stay in the present. Read books for kids and books for adults, read sexy books and read fairy tales. Read about magic and about real people. Read. Read stories you relate to, and those that show you the other side of the coin. Read diversely. Read short and long, read through pictures and read words. Read with music or in silence, in public or in private. Buy, borrow, give away. Read a book a day or a book a year. Read. Read whatever your heart desires. Read novels, plays, poetry, memoirs, hell, even the fridge manual or billboards for all I care. Read everything. Just read. #books #booksagram #bookstack #light #academia #lightacademia #chaoticacademia #chaoticacademiaaesthetic #classics #literature #classicliterature #literaturemajor #study #studygram #studyspace #classiclit https://www.instagram.com/p/CMnDdGkLyWB/?igshid=9l80dd1jzevq

I am forever chained to myself; that's what I am, and that's what I must try to live with.

"Never trust a person who doesn't own any books."   I don't know where I  first heard this but I'm not going to lie, it has often proved true.   . You cant tell it's my home (even my bag if we are being real)  by my books. All kinds of books: Fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, memoirs, poetry, comic books, witch books, pottery books, books on art, history and special additions.  When it comes to books I am equal opportunity.  Books tell us stories, obviously and every story has something to take away from it.  Books teach us to put ourselves in someone else's shoes and help us develop empathy.   Someone that has books likes to learn, they are willing to listen,  absorb other views and learn.   . We can always learn...even from a grocery store novel.   . For my newest blog post on how to read more and fit reading more into your busy daily life,  check out  Erikaadults.com.   . #books #reading #wellness #mentalhealth #health #positivity #adulting  #read # blog #blogging #hobbies #hobby #witch #classiclit #lit #literature #specialaddition #horror (at Bucks County, Pennsylvania) https://www.instagram.com/p/CLzMYpUHpl0/?igshid=kg6dgcgapqwt

You see I usually find myself among strangers because I drift here and there trying to forget the sad things that happened to me.
