Hi all my Bookworms!
My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
How are you all?
So Tuesday again. I think we are developing a bit of a pattern here.
Each week I am doing Top Ten Tuesday and I am loving the topics at the moment.
I am hoping that you all know what Top Ten Tuesday is but in case you don’t Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and switched to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018. This week’s topic is ‘Reasons Why I Love …’
I thought about this long and hard and what I should be loving.
I mean I love a lot of things but I wasn’t sure exactly what to put.
I could do a genre, like fantasy or romance. I could do why I love YA, or new adult. I could do why I love Rick Riordan, but haven’t I already gone into that one.
Then I thought about lockdown and things I’m missing.
I’m not missing a huge deal. I am very much a house cat and don’t feel the need to go out all the time. I don’t party and most of my friends are in my books, on the internet, or at least reachable through social media.
After all that thought, I came up with one thing.
I miss bookshops.
I miss browsing the shelves and finding new authors and comfy chairs and good deals.
So here is my list of why I love books shops:
- Knowledgeable staff
- Comfy chairs
- Other readers
- Special editions
- Other bookish stuff (i.e pin badges, bookmarks, calenders)
- Cats (I’ve talked about Shakespeare and Company a lot while I was living in Paris but they’re bookshop has cats in it)
- Time. It always feels like I have all the time in the world when I’m at a bookshop
- New authors
- And most of all … they have books!
So what do you love about bookshops? What is you favourite thing about bookshops? And are you missing them as much as I am?
Or tell me what you love and give me the reasons why you love it.
