"...while finding true love was one of the most splendid things that could happen to you in life, finding a friend was equally splendid." -- Felix J Palma, The Map of the Sky

Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Reader

My picks for the Tuesday Top Ten, as invented by The Broke and Bookish. Today's theme is Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Reader and, like many of my fellow bibliophiles out there, this is a list that could go on forever, but I'll restrict it to 10.

I love being a reader because...

1. ..my life is always full of exciting characters.
2. ...I'm always learning new things.
3. ...I get to travel to new, and sometimes strange, places.
4. ...I get to leave stark reality behind me, at least for a few hours.
5. ...It's an excuse to blog and chat with you fine people!
6. ...I never have to worry about getting bored.
When I read...
7. ...Magic is real.
8. ...Monsters do exist.
9. ...So do heroes.
10. ...I feel.


  1. Seriously, leaving the real world behind is my single favorite thing about reading. Real life sucks compared to books, haha. Great list! :)

    Amanda @ i solemnly swear

  2. yes, the feelings are my favorite part! I love a book that can totally break my heart or make me incredibly happy!

    1. Its fun to think too, that someone out there, reading the same book as you are, feeling the same things...


Thank you for taking the time to leave me your thoughts! I try to respond to all comments and questions, so come back soon!
