Each week, The Broke and Bookish host a Top Ten Tuesday based on a certain bookish topic. Other bloggers are able to participate and post their own top ten list based on the topic.
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is a Top Ten Bookish Things I Am Thankful For.
So here’s my (short) list in no particular order:
Oh my goodness, I absolutely love Goodreads. Without it, I would not survive as a reader and a book blogger. Goodreads keeps track of all the books I read, the ratings I give them, the books I need to read, the books I need to check out, how long it took me to read a book, the number of books I’ve read so far this year, the ratings of books people read; I can go on and on about this all day.
Ever since I started book blogging, I have tons of books with awesome premises on my to-buy list. Thank goodness I discovered Strandbooks; most books sold in Strand has a 50% discount. Yes, that’s right, that means that hardcovers are $9 and paperbacks are sold for $5. Strandbooks basically saved my wallet.
You know the books with all the hype surrounding it? Yeah, well I usually end up disliking them. Yeah, I know. Thank goodness I borrow all those books from the library instead of buying them, if you know what I mean.
4. B&N Coupons
Books are expensive. Without those 15% coupons Barnes & Noble sends me, I can barely buy any paperbacks (no hardcovers because Amazon has a better deal than Barnes & Noble for hardcovers) because I’m a cheap person. :P
Without the two bookshelves I have, my books would have no place to go. However, some of my books already have no place to go because I need a new bookshelf. Eep!
6. Bookish People!
Without you guys to chat about books with, which ones you highly recommend, which ones I need to grab asap, and which ones to avoid like it’s the flu, blogging would absolutely be no fun. So thank you guys for making blogging and reading books worthwhile!
Okay, I know this isn’t a list of ten bookish things that I am thankful for, but man, these are all I can think of. What are your top ten bookish things you are thankful for?
