Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps. Etc.


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week, we get a theme to list our top tens. 

This week's Top Ten is:  Ten Bookish Websites, Organizations, Apps. Etc.


Most will highlight the well known bookish sites. But I am going to highlight the lesser known or unknown bookish links. Here I go:

1) zoetropeAll-Story is a quarterly literary publication founded by Francis Ford Coppola in 1997 to explore the intersection of story and art, fiction and film. I simply love exploring this website

2) Journal of Mythical ArtsIt is sponsored by the Endicott Studio, a nonprofit organization dedicated to literary, visual, and performance arts inspired by myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral storytelling tradition.

3) Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: You will find everything related with her. Poetry, short stories, new projects.

4) Crime TimeAn excellent magazine devoted to crime and mystery fiction.

5) The Financial Fiction Genre: A web site,on banking and finance in fiction from the classics of Dumas, Dickens and Thackeray to modern financial thrillers.

6) Poetry Daily: All about contemporary poets and poetry

7) Google Books

8) Short Story Classics: The Best from the Masters of the Genre

9) PoeStories.com: This site contains short stories and poems by Edgar Allan Poe , story summaries, quotes, and linked vocabulary words and definitions for educational reading. It also includes a short biography, a timeline of Poe's life, and links to other Poe sites.

10) sffworld: Everything to do with sci-fi. Do check it out!
