Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! I just really love TTT and connecting with so many awesome bloggers. You guys are the best!
Every week we create a list of our Top 10 based on the theme given at the link above. This week’s theme is Top Ten Bookworm Delights. I was so excited when I saw this theme. It’s always fun to talk about bookish things that I love.
Bookstores // Of all sorts and all sizes. I love little hole-in-the-wall bookstores that are one of a kind and I love Barnes and Noble stores or the book aisle at Costco. I just love bookstores and love browsing for hours. And my sweet husband often lets me buy something. He’s the best 🙂
Beautiful hard cover books // I really love buying beautiful hard covers. I love the Barnes and Noble classic collections. I love old classics. I love new novels with beautiful colors and font. I just love beautiful books.
Bringing home 5+ books from the library // And not knowing which one to read first. I absolutely love browsing in the library and not feeling bad at all when I check out too many books 🙂
When the book I really want to read finally comes in at the library // Being on the waitlist for library books is hard and exciting. I love getting those emails and devouring the book first–no matter how deep my TBR pile has become.
Midnight book release parties // Some of my favorite bookish memories come from dressing up as Harry Potter characters and anxiously awaiting the newest book. I’ve been to a few other releases, but the HP ones were the best!
Literary Sites // I love it all–author homes, book locations, even movie sets. I am a super nerd when it comes to literary locations. Check out my favorites in this post.
Reading a book in one day // Love when I get so engrossed by a novel that I just keep reading and reading and reading (and not doing all the other things I should do). It is so wonderful to just read 🙂
The Smell of Books // I love the smell when you first walk into Barnes and Noble. I love the smell of old books, new books, small and big. I love the creak of the pages the first time you open a new book.
Finding bookworms who love the same books // It’s such a lovely moment when I find new friends who love and obsess over the same books I do. So many of you bloggers are my kind of bookworms 🙂
My personal library // I love arranging my books on my bookshelves and growing my library. I hope to have a room full of shelves packed with books in my dream house one day. And a window seat–how lovely is the one in this picture?
Bonus: (because how do I stop listing my endless list of bookish delights??) first editions of books, rare editions, signed copies of books, meeting favorite authors, and always building my wishlists for books to read and to own 🙂
What bookish things delight you?
