Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is about our Top Ten Bookish Delights. I found this topic great fun!
The smell of a new book
My family are quite used to me opening a book and smelling it. It’s just a natural reaction for me. It’s immediate. I LOVE that smell.
I’m not going to hide it. I love a pretty cover. I judge books by their covers. I can’t help it. I’m not sorry.
Bright page edges
I love it when books have pretty page edges- especially if they’re really vibrant!
Having a bookworm blogging sister
My sister is the best. She read to me when I was younger, we regularly discuss books, we collaborate together and she’s a book blogger too. She is definitely one of my favourite bookish delights. You can find her HERE.
Reading to my class
I am a primary school teacher. I teach 6-7 year olds. I have read so many books to them so far this year. They adore Roald Dahl. I just love the awe and wonder on their faces. ❤
Finding a new favourite author
I just love that warm and fuzzy feeling when you KNOW you’ve found a new favourite author. I’ve had that so much since I started blogging. To name a few… Alison Rattle, Emma Carroll, Patrick Ness and Emery Lord ❤
Reading in coffee shops
One of my favourite things to do when I meet up with my sister is to find a lovely coffee shop and after chatter/food… get stuck into reading. I love that so many shops are so welcoming to us bookworms!
Snuggling up with a book on a cold day
I like reading in all weathers, but I especially like putting on pyjamas, grabbing a blanket and getting stuck into a REAL book.
Reading in the sun
As I said, I like reading in all weathers, but I adore reading out in the sunshine. On a recent holiday I tore through so many books because I just find reading in the sun one of the most relaxing things ever!
This bookshop in Bath is simply beautiful. I was lucky enough to have a reading spa a while back which you can read about here. My sister and I are going to return there this summer for another go! 😀
