Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by The Artsy Reader. This week’s topic is a Ten Signs You’re a Book Lover. I love this prompt – there are so many ways you can take it, and every book lover has a different experience. Here are my signs that you’re a book lover.

  1. You buy the books you’ve borrowed from the library that you loved.
  2. You buy more books than you can physically read
  3. You have at least five authors that you will buy/read anything they write
  4. You’ve definitely thought of writing your own book
  5. When you go on vacation you pack at least a book a day
  6. You’ve drowned at least one book in the bathtub
  7. You’ll only loan your books out to your most trusted friends
  8. You’ve had to put yourself on at least one book buying ban
  9. You have a strong preference for paperback, hardcover or eBooks
  10. You can still remember that one book that REALLY got you into reading

  1. What a great list. The first 5 + #8 definitely apply to me — actually, off #4, one of my weird hobbies is writing book jacket copy for novels I would like to exist. I don’t quite have the drive to write or outline an actual complete novel, but I read enough to know how my dream book would be marketed.

  2. #3 and #4 really hit home! There are so many stories in my head but my lazy self can I hardly muster up the motivation to actually write my own book sighs.

  3. Oh no! Those poor bathtub books! I’m happy I have a waterproof Kindle. I take it to the gym (when we’re not under lockdown) and read in the hot tub after my workout.

  4. I’m definitely guilty of some of those too. Well, not the bathtub books though. Since we don’t have a bathtub. But I can imagine that that is a big shock every time one falls in the tub. 🙈
