I am a bookworm.
There are so many things that I adore about being a bookworm: the limited edition collectible editions of books, the events, the merch. But these ten things are the pinnacle of bookworm delights, and I don’t know how I’d live without any of them.
10) Rereading books you love
Okay, sometimes this one can go terribly and horribly wrong. You decide to reread a book you loved as a child, and it disappoints you and stomps on your heart. However, a lot of the time they’re EVEN BETTER! I read ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ again for my Classics Challenge, and I loved it so much more the second time around because I could appreciate it more as an adult.
9) Discovering an adorable independent bookshop
I mean, I love Waterstones as much as the next bookworm, but sometimes it’s wonderful to support independent booksellers, and finding a place with a wonderful atmosphere and great stock? That’s a brilliant find.
8) Subscription boxes
Owlcrate and Illumicrate are the only ones that I personally receive, but I’m so tempted by Fairyloot… They’re all so gorgeous!
7) Being surrounded by books
6) Debut authors
5) Finding a brilliant new blog
4) The bookish community
3) Alternate covers
2) Cait at Paper Fury’s Society6 store
