How are we all this Sunday morning? What are we all reading? Let me know, I might need to add it to my TBR (because my TBR isn’t long enough obviously!)
Today’s #SixforSunday is something that I could easily make ramble on for hours, so being concise with 6 was both easy and tough. Today we’re talking:
Reasons I love books
I don’t have to think about my own life for a little while as I’m reading. I can get lost in the streets of Ketterdam, or be watching Sorrow’s life unfold, or get lost in the world of Brightstorm, or travel around the globe hunting Chaos Stones with Elliot. It doesn’t matter. For those few hours I’m just reading. My own troubles can be gone for a while.
- Finding a connection with characters
Whether it’s a love or a hate, characters are the thing I love. Find me a character that I connect with and I’m gone. There’s so many amazing characters in books. So so many. Go find yourself a character you love or hate.
- Books have brought me some of the best friends
If I didn’t read I wouldn’t have the group of friends I do have. It’s as simple as that.
- Cover love
I know, I know, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. We all do it, it’s OK. I love covers. They make me so happy.
- Author love
Getting to read a book is a pretty incredible thing. You get to appreciate the work an author has put in to this thing you’re reading. You get to see someone at the very highest level. A finished masterpiece. It’s pretty wonderful. So many books don’t get printed, and here you are reading one. It must be good.
- Seeing myself in characters
Now, I didn’t think this was a thing I cared about until I saw myself in characters in 2 separate books and it just hit me in the face. If you can find yourself in a book then you’re represented. This is important.
So there we have it! My #SixforSunday why I love books .
I’d love to see your reasons why you love books! Share them with me on twitter using the hashtag #SixforSunday or link me to your post and I shall check it out. I love you all for joining in!
