Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish.
So, I’m not really a sappy person. I actually don’t really like when we go around the dining room table at Thanksgiving stating what we’re thankful for because it feels too public. I’m more private, and when I want to tell someone how much I care about them, I like to do it one on one. That’s just me, though. So I decided to keep things book-related for this TTT, even though I didn’t have to.
In no particular order . . .
Yeah, so maybe I am being a little sappy here, but I’m trying not to be. I’m just stating a fact – because of my family I am a book nerd – and proud of it. From the time I was born, I was always going to the library and the bookstore, and I always saw family members reading. Not just my parents, by my grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. It’s hard to not like books when practically your whole family is the bookish-sort.
Access to free books. Duh! Also, it’s where I make my living now, too. So ten points to libraries!
I can’t say how awesome it has been to meet other people who love books as much as I do. Especially when my taste in books is different from most of my friends and family.
I’m getting materialistic, here. Seriously, how would I have discovered book bloggers without a computer. Also, all the other books I found just by searching the web has been awesome!
For writing darn amazing books!
Where would we be without stories? I love them for the escapism they provide when I need it, the way they help me figure things out, how they change the way I view the world, how they inspire conversations with people.
