Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish
The full title for this week was Reasons I Love Being a Blogger/Reader but I decided to focus on just being a reader. I thought that this topic was going to be a lot more difficult than it turned out to be. Being an avid reader has definitely made a huge difference in my life and I thank my mother each and every day for encouraging my passion.
Reasons I Love Being A Reader
1. Never Bored
There’s always something to read on the subway, waiting for a doctor’s appointment, standing in line at the bank, etc.
If you’re always reading, you’re always learning something.
As an introvert, my alone time is precious and what better way to spend it then reading!
Alternately, book lovers know how wonderful it is to share your passion with other readers.
Whether it’s debating or fangirling, the best conversations come out of reading.
I don’t always speak intelligibly (I blame lack of caffeine) but when I do, I can thank my years of reading.
Reading has given me words to live by and keep myself motivated through the worst and best of times.
8. Character Relations
It might be a new book boyfriend or a character who is “just so me!”, being a reader means discovering a little piece of yourself written in every book.
As a very poor college graduate, I don’t have the money to hop on a plane and circumnavigate the world but that doesn’t mean I can’t travel through the pages.
Reading allows me to unplug, de-stress, and forgot about my problems for an hour or two; it’s the healthiest way I know how to become myself again.
