There are many bookish delights in the world, but today I'll only showcase ten of them for you for Top Ten Tuesday.
#10: Owning a complete series with matching covers
I only have one set of matching cover books and it's so close to my heart. It's so beautiful.
#9: Watching the movie after you read the book
I'm one of those super impatient people that very likely will watch the movie beforehand when it's 100% something I NEED to see. But when I manage to get it together and read the book first, it's almost always magical to see the movie.
Remember those books that immerse you so complete in their world that everything outside of it, in the real world, doesn't matter anymore? I wish I'd encounter one of those again.
#7: Discovering bookish SWAG where you least expect it
You're just minding your business and trying to do some shopping when you casually encounter book-inspired clothes or jewelry. Makes my day every time!
#6: When a recommendation hits home
I am so humbled when people ask for my opinion, even more so when they actually end up liking the book I urged them to read! Success!
#5: Loving the first book in a series and realizing all sequels are already published
It's such a wonderful feeling to not have to wait to read a series.
#4: Book Sales
Can anyone of us ever walk past a book sale?
There is nothing more pure than reading multiple books by the same person and loving them all.
#2: Book mail
I love, love, love getting books in the mail The anticipation before opening the package, looking at a new book for the first time - it's fantastic!
#1: The smell of a new book
Nothing can trump this. Honestly, this is the most beautiful smell in the world.
