*Top Ten Tuesday* Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic and we all share our thoughts on that topic! I decided it was finally time to jump on board with this wicked fun meme!

For this week on Top Ten Tuesday, the topic is:

Top 10 Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

1. Escapism - I like the fact that reading takes me away from my horrific and sometimes mundane and depressing life.

2. Friends - I like the fact that reading/blogging has given me a slew of interesting and strange friends.

3. Freedom to read what I want, when I want it, without feeling pressured by anyone.

4. Meeting new authors who have been extremely helpful and understanding and even fantastic about reviews that I've posted in the past that weren't necessarily awesome.

5. The joy of being able to sit back and read without anyone bothering me, except my cat, and not having to meet anyone's deadline.

6. Reading keeps my mind sharp and I learn things I wouldn't know otherwise.

7. Blogging gives me access to amazing followers who I adore more than my collection of beanie babies that are bagged up individually and stored away in a garage that my parents own.

8. As a blogger, I have more access to books that I would not have had otherwise. (No, folks, it is not all for the free books!)

9. I know this is probably going to be repeated, but, I love the publishers on NetGalley and Edelweiss who have pre-approved titles for me so that all I have to do is download them to my Kindle and I'm set for months at a time.

10. Blogging and reading is much better than alcohol, drugs, a junk food obsession, spending unknown amounts of money on makeup, and clothes and other junk that will just go out of style sooner rather than later.


  1. You're so right. It's a better addiction than most things! I also like to read for escapism too. I find it very relaxing. Great list!

  2. I love the escapism too! That's why I read...to get away from real life. =)
