*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?
