Books & Reading
The StoryGraph: A phenomenal alternative to Goodreads that features book tags, half-star ratings, reading stats and graphs, and more. Its keystone feature, however, is a questionnaire that matches a reader with specific books.
OverDrive: An app that allows you to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from your local library and others, as long as you have the required library card(s).
Project Gutenberg: An archive of free-to-read books, largely classics.
Open Library: An online library that is quite controversial, but has a well-intentioned goal. My view on piracy is mixed. Basically, if you can afford to support authors, please do.
Book Trigger Warnings: If you're wondering whether a book has themes that could make you too uncomfortable, use this wiki to search for it.
