Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by the wonderful book blog, The Broke and Bookish, and involves making lists about books. LISTS! BOOKS! What more could you want?
Being a bookworm is a fabulous hobby. I mean, you get to read books, you get to blog about books, you get to meet other people who like books… The list goes on. And that’s what this week’s topic is all about! Celebrating all of the best things about being a bookworm:
Top Ten Bookworm Delights
Walking into a bookshop is just the best feeling ever. I could spend hours browsing Waterstones, or a local independent shop.
The smell of books
Then when you’re in the shop and you open up a book, and it has that new book smell. Or you’re in a charity shop, and the books have that old book smell, and it’s just so good.
The (awful) wait for the next book in the series which is also sort of exciting
You know what I mean? Even though it’s a horrible wait, you can get excited with fellow bookworms and discuss what might happen.
Books arriving in the post
The moment when that parcel you’re expecting arrives, and there are brand new books inside. The best moment ever!
Seeing someone else reading your favourite book
While I was at uni the other day, I saw a girl reading Rebel of the Sands, and I really wanted to just go fangirl with her! Except I didn’t, because I would’ve been so annoyed if someone had interrupted me while reading that book.
Binging on a book series
Hearing about a book series a year after it finished means reading it all in one go. SO much better than reading one book a year.
Seeing a book adapted into a film
Okay, so sometimes the final result goes badly wrong, but the process is so exciting. Seeing the actors for the first time, seeing the photos from filming, the trailer!
Forcing other people to read your favourite books
And then when they agree, seeing them feel the same pain as you did when you read that book.
Matching book covers
Let’s be honest, is there anything better than this?
There are so many insanely creative people out there making really cool bookish things, and it’s so hard to resist the temptation of just buying them all!
That’s my list, but what’s your favourite bookworm delight?
