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 topic is Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books (i.e. skip meals, camped outside a bookstore, broke up with someone because they don’t like books, etc. – submitted by Aggie’s Amygdala)

Forgive me for I have sinned…

I have not noticed people waving at me because I was in the middle of a great audiobook

I don’t know if I turn to books because I cannot sleep or if I do not sleep because I like to read. It’s complicated, okay.

Use everything as a bookmark. Despair over what to use as bookmark. Spend copious hours making bookmarks.

I’ve cried on a public transport and coffeeshops because a character died.

I’ve spent A LOT of money on books.

…And many hours. Days. Months probably.

I’ve asked Librarians weirdest questions and have made them look for books based on my super vague descriptions.

Throughout school, my grades were mostly mediocre because I would rather read than study

I seem to live in a lie where I think library books are mine. Often resulting in overdue books.

Gotten unreasonably angry at people who don’t read.

I’ve cancelled social events because I would rather read

Skipped all the things I should have done to read the book before the movie.

The lengths I dragged my parents through as kid to get a specific edition of the book. Thank you mom and dad <3
