Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Being a Reader and Book Blogger

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I heart lists!

I Love Being a Reader Because:

- I can lose myself in other worlds - whether they are real, imaginary or a combination, I can escape the daily grind by immersing myself in a different place, time, people etc.

- I always have a reason to buy new books and break fill up my bookshelves.  And they look so PRETTY.

- I get to meet other readers and talk about our passion - whether it's book bloggers, Goodreads friends or just random people I meet in bookstores, it's awesome to share the love (or otherwise) with someone else.

- I've always got something to do / a reason to procrastinate.

- I'm always learning new things.

I Love Being a Book Blogger Because:

- I have another platform to talk about books that I love/enjoyed/wanted to throw out the window.

- By connecting with other book bloggers I find books that I would NEVER have come across by myself.

- I've made a whole bunch of reading friends I would probably never have 'met' otherwise.

- When I don't feel like reading, I have another reason to procrastinate real life.

- It's an awesome hobby to talk to other people about - everyone is always fascinated.

That's my Top Ten Reasons I love being a reader and book blogger - what do you love the most about reading and/or book blogging?

    Love sharing my love of books as well! Awesome list!

    here's our TTT

  2. I took time off from both reading and blogging and while I really needed that break - I missed everyone and my books. I don't think I could stay away for very long.

  3. Lol about procrastinating. Seriously, though, it's sadly true. Great list. :)

    Amanda @ i solemnly swear

    I think you hit the nail on the head when it comes to why most of us
    love book blogging — the books might bring us here but it’s the
    COMMUNITY and the PEOPLE that keep us coming back. It’s a really
    wonderful thing and you guys (meaning my fellow bloggers) are some of
    the coolest, sweetest, smartest peeps I know.

    I think yo said it perfectly. I would probably add that I love being a book blogger because it gives me a creative outlet that I can do from the comfort of my bed in my pajamas, lol.

  6. I love connecting to people online-- I can't believe how many people out there love the same books I do, it's so refreshing when I'm used to talking to adults who judge me for my love of YA literature!

  7. I love this ttt and seeing everyone's reasons for being a reader and blogger.
    Awesome list <3

    Here's our TTT

    I love having an excuse, any excuse to buy new books and the blog is the perfect excuse. Glad I'm not the only one who breaks the bookshelves ;) Great picks :) My TTT.
