Top Ten Tuesday #54

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Top 10 Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

I finally have the ability to share my thoughts and feelings about the books I read now that I'm a blogger.
I have the ability to connect with other bloggers/readers who enjoy the same books as I do from all across the world.
As a reader I truly do get to live the lives of a thousand people through the characters in the books I read.
Blog Tours. I love e'm and hate 'em. I love finding new books to read and helping spread the word about them but I often get a little too sign up crazy and end up having a tour every other day but I still love it.
NetGalley & Edelweiss
Pre-publication books? What more do I have to say.
A more valid excuse to go to the library. Not that I ever needed one but now I get less rolling eyes when I say that I need to go pick up a newly released book.
C'mon, you're all thinking it. Giveaways are awesome whether you're the one holding them or entering them they're fun!
Being able to do interviews with authors. It's awesome to be able to pick their brains and find out what makes them want to write.

I love it, it's introduced me to so many wonderful authors, and readers several of those who have become friends.


Mr. Turning the Pages

Because this wonderful man supports the blog, pays for the giveaways, helps me lug books to and from the library, lets me drag him off to bookstores and reads the blog everyday. Plus he's the driving force behind me starting the blog. He's amazing and I love him.



  1. Wow thank you baby. That really sweet of you. I'm just glad you have enjoyed blogging so much and have such a passion about books and can share it withothers.
