Top Ten Tuesday: BROKE AND BOOKISH 1 YEAR BLOGOVERSARY -- Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Book Blogger and a Bookish Person

BROKE AND BOOKISH 1 YEAR BLOGOVERSARY
Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Book Blogger and a Bookish Person

How I became a blogger in the first place.


The first blogging event I participated in.


The first weekly blogging event I participated in.

I read over 100 children's nonfiction
picture books in order to choose the best books of the year.
Delightful.


All the amazing prize packages from bloggers
and free books sent from authors and publishers!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

As usual, very good reasons! I forgot about the read-a-thons and the giveaways in mine. Such good reasons, those.

I love that your reasons are so personalized instead of things that all bloggers can say. Great list.

Also, I'm curious to see what you think of The Use and Abuse of Literature. I've been wanting to read it ever since I heard about it on NPR a while ago.

Priya said...

Love your stack of free books! Seems like a great reason to love book blogging all by itself. #7 sounds wonderful too!! Fun list!

Karen said...

I took part in Dewey's 24 hour readathon for the first time this year and had a lot of fun. I definitely wouldn't have known about it if it hadn't been for blogging.

Celesta said...

exactly! So many great reasons!

Mickey @ imabookshark said...

KThomas5 said...

such a great and creative list!!!

Loni said...

I love your list! A few different things I haven't seen on other top tens this week. I can't believe I didn't even think of the free books. I've won some great stuff. As always, I love that you put pictures (and videos) with everythign.

Smash Attack! said...

I love how you put a book on your list! ♥ Your list is so different from mine, and I love it!

Jenn said...

That is an awesome list. I am now obsessed with the dewy decimal rap. I was way too amused by that.

Vasilly said...

I love blogging for the same reasons you do! I hope your week is off to a great start.

DJL said...

Excellent reasons, Deb! :) I must definitely participate in a Read-a-thon one year. This year they just seem to fall on weekends that I'm either working or going out of town. And I love the free books, too! Thank you for visiting and happy reading!

Kayleigh said...

I'm loving how personalised this list is, and that rap?! Who knew you could make the dewey decimal system cooler?

Ms. Yingling said...

Wow. I am very impressed with what you have accomplished in a year. I've been blogging for 5 and publishers are STILL not sending me ARCs, and the amount of followers you have is nothing short of amazing. Well done!

Laurie @ What She Read said...

Fabulousness! I love how you took this opportunity to connect to so many other bloggers and bookish goodness!

Megan said...

The 24 Hour Readathon was the first book blogging event I ever participated in, too. And it'll have a special place in my heart forever, for just that reason. =)

Logan E. Turner said...

Ha! I love 2 and 3, so funny! This is a great list.

Kristin @ Beneath Shining Stars said...

Yes, yes, yes to 6, 5, and 1! My TBR list is a bit crazy, but it's nothing compared to the list of books that I'd love to buy! And other book bloggers are amazing people. So glad to be part of such a bookish community!

Jennifer said...

happy blogiversary and great list of awesome book blogger stuff! Love it!
