Reading List

Charlie lounging on a book, 2020. Used my reading list post.

Favorites (*), Kindle (K), Nook (N), Libby (B), Library (L), Librevox (V), and Own (O).


Purpose: This article, which is used as an Amazon Goodreads substitute, is continuously updated.

Ebook Dangers: I read books using Kindle and Libby thorough Pennsylvania’s and New York City’s public library systems. Although there are cost and accessibility benefits (i.e., font size changes) to using ebooks, there are many dangers to using ebooks. If you, like me, read ebooks, consider donating to your local public library or donating anonymously to authors.


  • Libby: Many public libraries host books and audiobooks on Libby. You can checkout and return books through the app. You can read books on Libby or through Kindle products.
  • Kindle Web
  • O’Reilly: RIT students have access to all books and audiobooks from RIT. Note that there is a mobile and tablet app too, so you can read on the go.
