Make learning your habit!

I never leave reviews but I had to for this genuinely phenomenal app. It’s everything you want, nothing you don’t. A fantastic alternative to most evil social media apps. It really fosters curiosity and creativity, and everyone on there is enthusiastic and interesting. There’s no self promotion, just people engaging with the world. Instead of clicking on a social media app out of habit, click on bookshlf and go read an article or watch a video that expands the way you view the world. Really great job guys.

Social Media done right

If you’re like me, you get a lot of your news, journalism, and reading from the internet. Finding good stuff can be really hard—most social media platforms have failed as media sources (too much drama, dumb AI curation, thoughtless hot-takes, etc). Bookshlf is a welcomed alternative to all those other platforms.

If your looking for a way to discover and share enlightening, entertaining, and engaging content curated by interesting people, join the Bookshlf community!

No more emailing myself article links to read!

When I see an article I want to read but don’t have time that moment I use to email it to myself, and... never actually read it. I now can organize everything I want to check out in one place and go to bookshlf when I have that extra few mins.

Awesome to see what others are posting too! So many good book recommendations, TV shows and corky articles I wouldn’t ever see otherwise!
