THIS WEEK'S TOPIC IS: Top Ten Reasons why I love being a book blogger/Reader...
BLOGGERS1.) The other bloggers... This is one of those duh moments... Getting to talk to people who love books and genuinely care about what you're saying is an amazing feeling. I love the fact that I have friends that I can so easily relate to, even if I've never met them in person before!
2.) Sharing my opinion~ I love being vocal and telling people what I think so for me that's a big part of blogging, being able to say that this book was AWFUL or that this book was AMAZING.
3.) Being able to work with authors~ For most of my life I've idolized authors. To me authors are kind of like movie stars. And as a blogger, I've been able to work with some amazing ones and that has been incredible!
4.) It gives me something to do in my spare time besides reading. If I didn't blog I would read... Or more likely I would just end up wasting even more time on my computer doing who knows what! (I know that seems impossible right?)
5.) I love working with other bloggers. Yes this is different then blogging friends. Working with other bloggers has been a spectacular experience, and some of those other bloggers I barely know, but quickly they have become friends!
6.) As a reader I LOVE being able to escape into other worlds. Getting the chance to read about things that would never happen in real life is a great feeling.
7.) I also love getting the time to read because I kid you not, I am that much more prepared in English class. I learn some of the randomest things while reading and sometimes in school a question about one of those things comes up and I look like a genius because no one else knows it but me. I also understand things A LOT better because of reading. For example: Without reading 1984 I would NEVER have understood any of the societal problems throughout the Soviet Union.
8.) I also love being a reader because I feel really safe at night. As a reader I have a bazillion books just chilling in my room and if anyone ever broke into my house and came into my room in the dead of the night I have many things to swing at them.... SUCCESS!!!
9.) As a reader I can experience things that non-readers CAN'T. I mean can they say that they've traveled on a flying beast during World War One, or seen angels fall from the sky as the world ends, or a million other things? NO THEY CAN'T, BUT I CAN!!!!
10.) I'm like, 30000000 times more prepared for the apocalypse than they are. Sure they might watch Walking Dead and know a few measly things about survival, but I? I know it all. I could so survive this apocalypse.....
ANYHOW... That's why I love reading and blogging...
WHAT ABOUT YOU? Why do you LOVE it????
