Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list our top tens! This week’s topic is “top ten reasons I love being a blogger/reader.” Yeeeessss. I am finally participating in Top Ten because this one’s amazing, especially after Love-A-Thon over the weekend. I just want to sing praises about everybody and everything. I just have so much love for this community! <3 GROUP HUG? :D
I LOVE BEING A READER BECAUSE…
I can go on any adventures without leaving the comforts of my room.
That’s the beauty of reading. I don’t have to leave my room to go on an adventure. All I have to do is pick up a book and boom! I’m on an adventure. Sure, I might not actually be the one who’s making the actual journey, but I do feel like I am, especially when I’m engrossed in the book.
I get to experience new worlds.
The world is so vast. Even more so with books because worlds that don’t exist in the real world exists in books. I get to experience it and learn about the people living there just by reading about it.
I meet wonderful characters I wish existed in my life.
I know those characters don’t exist in real life, but wouldn’t it be awesome if they did? I just need them! The ones I love are absolutely wonderful and awesome and gahhhh, if only they were real, then we would be the coolest bunch.
Reading keeps me entertained.
That’s one of the reasons why I read. I hate when I get bored, but I can fix that when I pick up a book. I can be easily entertained, especially if the book is a really good one.
Reading is fun!
Simple, yeah? (I don’t need to elaborate on this.)
I LOVE BEING A BLOGGER BECAUSE…
I’ve made lots of awesome friends!
I love you all. You guys are so friendly and a wonderful support system. I usually have a hard time making friends (because of the awkwardness of having to find a common interest), but I already known what people like and can jump into discussion about anything. We don’t have to do the awkward dance. We can just say “flail” and “feels,” you automatically know what I mean. You guys just get me. *hugs*
I get to interact with authors.
They are so accessible to talk to. When I am able to interact with them, I get incredibly giddy because they’re taking the time to respond to me (even if it’s just to say thank you).
I always discover new books I want to read.
Every day, I always find an endless amount of books I want to read. I never want it to stop because it’s amazing. There are soooo many wonderful books out there. I just want to devour them all!
I am getting better at articulating my thoughts.
Usually, I have a hard time articulating my thoughts in a coherent fashion and when that happens, I get embarrassed and totally shut down. Now though, I find it easier to tell people why I love or hate books. I think it’s because I have to write the pros and cons of a book every time I review a book and I’m interacting with more people who I’m comfortable talking to.
It has helped me be less awkward.
I feel more comfortable expressing myself since I begun blogging. That awkwardness I feel always occur when I can’t articulate my thoughts. However, since I’m getting better at that, the awkwardness has lessen.
What about you? What do you love about being a reader and/or a blogger? Anything similar to my list?
