Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Reasons I Love Reading

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 Reasons Why I Love Reading.

One. Exploring new worlds. Not even just the amazing sci-fi and fantasy ones but being able to see different parts of the world that I don’t have the means to travel to is so much fun.

Two. Escape. I think this is probably a reason we all have. No matter what’s going on in your life, we all need to escape from the real world sometimes.

Three. Books are so much better than TV. Don’t get me wrong, I like watching TV but I feel like it takes some of the imagination out of it. Everything’s just shown to you whereas with books, you get to imagine most of it yourself.

Four. Memories. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t reading. Most of my favorite memories revolve around books.

Five. The people. Book lovers are just plain awesome.

Six. The characters. I’m a complete introvert so I don’t socialize a lot and books let me meet so many different kinds of people.

Seven. Reading makes me happy, sad, angry. Books can make you feel anything and it’s amazing.

That’s all I could come up with this week. What do you love about reading?
