Top Ten Tuesday: Thankful For...

November 26, 2013

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week features a book related topic that allows you to spotlight your Top Ten.

Top Ten Things I Am Thankful For (could be bookish or not -- up to you)

I am going to stick with the bookish side of thankfulness for this post instead of the personal.

1. Authors
Without their creativity and diligence to writing, I wouldn't have these wonderful worlds to visit.

2. Publishers
All of their hard work of getting a book together and published to put those beautiful books into my hands.

3. Publicists
They do a wonderful job of getting the word out on their new books.

4. Book Blogging Community
I have made so many new friends through blogging. It's a wonderful time chatting about books with y'all.

5. Bookstores (New & Used, Physical Store or Online)
The sales I find in these stores is wonderful and makes book buying delightful with the money saving...that allows me to buy even more!

6. Hot Chocolate and Blankets
They make reading the most comfortable experience.

7. Book Covers
Pretty book covers, how can you pass them up!

8. Reading Buddies
I love my friends who are close by who read similar books that I do and will fawn over the characters with me. There is mo shame in book boyfriends.

9. GoodReads
Such a wonderful website that allows me to search out new books I never would have thought to look for.

10. Being Able to Review Books
It has been a wonderful opportunity to be able to read these books from authors/publishing houses and help get the word out on them...and the free books are an awesome bonus!

There are so many things to be thankful for, it was fun to focus on the book-side of it!


  1. Great list! I have to agree with all of them! :)

  2. Not sure how I missed this... but YES! Loved it, Kate. Yay for the GR love and nod to publicists - they do a great job getting those books into reader's hands. :)

  3. Rissi, Thanks! There are just so many things in the book world to be thankful for. :-)


Thanks for stopping by. Leave a word, leave a line, I would love to hear what you have to say.
