Top Ten Tuesday


Today is Top Ten Tuesday – A weekly bookish list created by The Broke and the Bookish!  This week’s topic is:

Bookworm Delights

As we all know, there are certain little things that only bookworms find joy in.  While each bookworm is different, I think we can all agree we have our own bookish delights.  Here’s mine:

Deckled Edges

I feel like people either love deckled edges or hate them, but I definitely love them.  I love everything about them!  The texture, the uneven pages, everything.

Old Books

I don’t care if it’s a book I have almost zero interest in, if I see an old book I just have to run over and admire it.  They always look like they have such a story to tell.  When I pick up old books, I imagine all that it has been through, and how it was printed in another time.

Reading in Your Favorite Spot With No Other Plans for the Rest of the Day

I’m very much an introvert, so for me, nothing feels better than coming home after a busy day, knowing I don’t have anywhere else to go. I love being able to just jump into my PJs, snuggle into my favorite reading spot, and just read for as long as I want.

Finding a New Favorite Book

There are some books, where after only reading ten pages (if even that), you’re already in love with the story, and you just know that this book has become a new favorite!

Reading Outside On a Beautiful Day

One of my favorite things to do on a lazy spring/summer/fall day (it’s too cold in the winter) is lay a blanket in the grass, gather up some pillows, and read until I’m almost sun burnt.

When You Find a Reference to Another Book in the One You’re Reading

I don’t know why, but when the book I’m reading references another book, it is so exciting!  Whether it be a reference to someone that is in the same book universe (like what happens in a lot of Sarah Dessen’s novels), or a character’s favorite book just happens to be your favorite book, it doesn’t matter; it’s just always so fun and exciting!

Bookish Clothes & Accessories

I’m not sure why, but being able to dress like your favorite book, as weird as that sounds, is so satisfying!

Finding a Book to Movie Adaptation That You Love

Regardless of whether or not it is 100% accurate to the book, sometimes the movie adaptation actually does do the book justice.

Designed Endpapers

Nothing is more exciting than when you expect to see nothing but a plain page when you open your book and it is actually a gorgeous design!

Cheap Books

There’s a reason I love library book sales so much!  Buying books can turn very expensive very fast, but luckily used bookstores and and especially library book sales can help; sometimes I can buy huge book stacks for less than $10!


That’s it for this week!  Let me know what delights you as a bookworm! 🙂
