If you love to curl up with a good book but can barely find the time to curl up for a nap, Lindsey Granger's giving you the most modern ways to make time for your favorite pasttime. Check out these 3 apps that will help you get back to reading, before bed or on the go, without costing you a trip to the bookstore, or costing any extra cash.

1. Blinkist

If you like to find new reads but know you don't have time to start a new book, check out the Blinkist app. Every day, the free app summarizes a different book into 15-minute reads. This way, you can read enough of the book to decide if you'd want to the whole thing; and you can get familiar with different books and use them to help you find other reads you might like.

2. Bookshout

Looking to join a new book club? How about joining a book club that won't make you leave your house or bring snacks? Bookshout is a free social app for book lovers. It imports books you've bought on Amazon or at Barns and Noble and then connects you with online book clubs for the books you've bought.

3. Joosr Books

If you've been meaning to finish that one book you love but just haven't gotten around to it, try the Joosr app. The app gives you summaries and highlights from best-selling titles in 20 minutes, and all you have to do is download them – you don't even need WIFI or cell service! Perfect for a long trip or wait at the doctors office.
