Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Go and check them out because they have some amazing reviews for you!
This weeks theme was things that bookish people find some kind of joy or satisfaction or warm fuzzy feelings from aka Bookworm Delights! So of course, I am down for it because I know most of you wonderful people have these kinds of things too! Then I had this crazy idea of tell my story with GIFs. I am so excited to see what you guys list!
The smell of a book
I know I am not the only book sniffer around here! There is just something about the smell, and feel of a physical book that gives a strange satisfying feeling.
Need I say more?
That moment when you find yourself nodding while you say “Right?!?! Let’s drink to that!”
There are those rare, precious moments when you just want to scream “Yaaasss honey!” To Kill a Mockingbird gave me that.
Yup. It seems like money hates you and magically leaves your wallet during book sales. I feel ya honey, I feel ya!
Discovering a good book from thrift shops (and seeing marks from the previous owner)
I love this. Maybe it’s weird. Is it just me? I feel like reading previously owned books, and seeing the things they marked or the things they wrote or the ones they highlighted make me wonder what kind of person bought this book, read it, and just decided to give it away. I wonder where they are from, what they do. I try to guess their personality by the marks on their books. I feel like I become a part of the book’s journey.
Rainy days + warm drink + cozy couch (or bed) + fluffy blanket + socks
Very few comes close to how good this feels. VERY FEW.
When one loves a book you recommend
This is probably the one time I would be happy when someone says this to me. Don’t you just love it when you introduce someone to a book and 2 days later she says
“This is all your fault.”
When another gets your reference from a book
Admit it. Booknerd inside jokes are the best.
That moment when you finish a book and tries to process everything
Just. One. More. Chapter.
I give myself a good laugh every time I say this to myself and then look at my phone and it’s freakin’ 5AM. What is so satisfying is that despite the lack of sleep, I just fed the hungry reader in me and I am fine with that. Plus I now know who killed the wife 🙂
The thrill of choosing which book to buy/read first
This, people, is the exact opposite of a reading slump.
Conversations with fellow booklovers
Oh my goodness this is just heaven. Having someone you can squeal and fangirl with is sooooo satisfying not to mention comforting haha! Isn’t that why you are here right now?
That feeling when you enter a bookstore/library
I don’t know why but when I saw this, I imagine the Game of Thrones theme playing. It’s like entering the realm of wonder. MAKE. WAY.
OR, you can enter the other way and say, “I got this”.
And that is my list for this week!
What are your Bookworm Delights?
Do any of you experience the ones I listed?
