Top Ten Tuesday: Bookworm Delights

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish*

Ah, the joys of reading!  The joys of books!  Here a few things that please my inner bookworm to no end:

1.) New Book Smell–  You can’t beat it.

2.) Cracking The Spine of a New Hardback– Yes, this is controversial.  I LOVE IT!  It is a beautiful magical sound that can only happen once.

3.) New Books from Favorite Authors–  I squee to the heavens anytime Jack Gantos or Adam Gidwitz writes something new.

4.) Authors Acknowledging Your Presence on Social Media– Judy Schachner posting on my wall after I liked her on Facebook?  LIFE MADE.

5.) Uninterrupted Reading Time- As a mom, anytime I get to read with no interruptions (other than the cat, because that will never be prevented) it’s glorious.

6.) New Book Day at the Library– When the cataloguer brings out MOUNTAINS of new books, it’s glorious.

7.)  When Someone Loves a Book I Recommended- Especially if it’s a child.

8.) LOL Moments– If an author makes me cackle aloud, it’s a glorious moment.  That being said, I nominate Pierce Brown for best use of “Bye Felicia.”

9.) Literature Couture– Clothing with book references?  Plz take my monies.

10.) The Knowledge That I Will Never Be Truly Alone As Long As I Have a Book- Priceless.

What are your favorite bookish delights?

    Finding out a book you loved has a sequel that is just as good – or better.

    Geeky bookish crafts, like perler bead art of book characters.

    Getting to the end of a day and realizing you were able to read an entire book – even if it was in chunks of uninterrupted time.

    Coming to work exhausted because I just HAD to stay up late to finish “one more chapter”.

    LOL Moments are the best. Although I might find a book funny or amusing, I’m such a stoic reader that I hardly actually laugh. I can think of three authors who have actually made me giggle though. Billy Bryson (non-fiction, travel writer), Louise Rennison (of Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging fame), and most recently Sally Christie (she writes historical fiction, but her prose is witty and actually quite hilarious).
