Top Ten Tuesday [8]

Top Ten Reasons I Love Being a Reader/Book Blogger

  1. I love being a reader because... BOOKS!  I would say who doesn't love them as objects, but I know at least three people who would answer that they don't.
  2. I love being a reader because... As cliche and overused as the saying is: I love escaping to a world that isn't mine.  The ability to leave my life and experience the life of a character for a period of time is something invaluable that I never want to lose.
  3. I love being a reader because... There are no commercials and the pictures in my head are better than any a movie or TV show could give me.
  4. I love being a book blogger because... It gives me the ability and forum to share what I think about a book (in real life there aren't many people I can gush about a book to).
  5. I love being a book blogger because... There is such a wonderful community surrounding book bloggers of every genre.
  6. I love being a book blogger because... All of the cover art!  I love making lists of beautiful covers and seeing all the covers other bloggers recommend.
  7. I love being a reader because... You can travel through time, in whichever direction you choose.
  8. I love being a reader because... It's socially acceptable to be reading virtually anywhere, on whatever material.  With what other form of media can you do that?  None.
  9. I love being a reader because... Books give my imagination streets and houses; people and countries; and governments and leaders.  All of this makes my imagination, and my life more rich and full of color.
  10. I love being a book blogger because... All my fellow bloggers open me up to so many potential reads that I may never have found otherwise!  And let's not forget all the followers that make us feel good.
What are your top ten reasons?

  2. This is a fantastic list. If blogging wasn't fun, I wouldn't do it. I don't think you can underestimate how great it feels to help others find books they enjoy.
