Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we're discussing the top reasons why we love being a blogger or a reader. I decided to list the reasons behind both why I love being a reader and why I love being a (book) blogger.
I love being a reader because books:
Are my favorite form of entertainment
Allow to me be anyone, to go anywhere, and to learn tons of new things in the process
Provide me with inspiration for my writing
Give me a better grasp of language and expand my vocabulary (What can I say? I love words)
Are the best way to de-stress at the end of the day
I love being a (book) blogger because blogging allows me to:
Interact with fellow book lovers
Be in the know with regard to book trends, upcoming book publications, and book deals
Have an incentive to think critically about literature
Gain a greater awareness (and appreciation) of the publishing process
Engage in analytical, critical writing about literature
I love how both of these hobbies allow me to introduce others to potential new favorite books. Because, really, I want everyone to love all the books.
This is perhaps not my most exciting Top Ten Tuesday post, but this topic is near and dear to my heart. Being a reader and being a book blogger puts me closer to one of my main passions in life: being a writer. Nothing communicates to me as well to me as stories do, after all.
Do you feel the same way? Please let me know why you love being a reader, being a blogger, or being both.
