Top Ten Tuesday: Five Bookworm Delights

2016 Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Ten Bookworm Delights.” I had a difficult time thinking of ten things, though I’m sure five more will pop into my head tomorrow, so instead I created a top five of my favorite. Everything on my list fill be with so much joy, and I’m sure I’m not alone.  So without further ado, here are my “Five Bookworm Delights.”

book smelling1.) New Book Smell

There’s nothing like that new book smell. It’s why I still frequent bookstores, even though I own an e-reader. When you open a new book, the pages allude to a new adventure waiting for you just on the next page. The smell is a reminder that you are the first (not really) to discover the books secrets.

2.) Bookish Swag

I’m in love with all the cool book swag that’s become popular. Years ago when I was in middle school (and dinosaurs roamed the Earth), I purchased a book cover. It was so pretty, and I could hide what I was reading from other people. Perfect for reading romance in public. LOL! Now, I’ve become obsessed with bookish totes.

3.) Book Subscriptions

This year I tried out an Uppercase Box subscription, and I really loved it. I’ve since cancelled it, because I wanted to try out Owlcrate, and I have so many TBR books, that it began to seem wasteful. I still haven’t tried Owlcrate, but plan to some time this summer. Either way, it was fun coming home from a long day at work, and finding a treat on my doorstep.

4.) New Release Day

New Release Day is always the best day of the week, because you know your long-awaited book(s) will finally be available. If this is true, then 2016 is beginning to feel like Christmas, as there are new books I’ve been wanting almost every week. While some of my series are now ending, I’ve been finding some new ones, and that’s wonderful.

5.) Finding a Different Edition

I’ve been attempting to read more classics, and when I recently visited The Ripped Bodice Bookstore in downtown Culver City, they had some beautiful Penguin classics. My favorite have to be Penguin’s Drop Caps Books, as they’re so vividly colorful. If your going to read a story hundreds of years old, you may as well read it in style 🙂

      It’s really beautiful! I love it’s so close to me, and can’t wait to go back. I hope you get the opportunity to visit it one day. That, and The Last Bookstore downtown.
