Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s TTT topic is Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
1. Book Blogging. First on my list, not so outrageous but definitely a labor of love. Running a book blog takes time and effort as you well know if you are reading this.
2. Accepting Books for Review. This goes hand in hand with #1 on my list. I love getting review books and am honored when I receive them from the publishers and authors but it is again, a labor of love. And it’s alot of work especially when you have review deadlines to meet. Just count the hours you take reading a book then add the time spent reviewing and sharing it on social media.
3. I once had my husband drive me from the airport directly to the bookstore so I could pick up my copy of the latest Harry Potter installment which I pre-ordered. I can’t remember if it was the last book in the series, but it was being released the day we flew back in from vacation and I didn’t want to go home without my copy. I needed to know if Snape was good or evil, I remember that because my book came with a free bumper sticker that said “Snape is Good”. Hubs double parked so I could run in and grab my book. He’s a keeper.
