|Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish|
Instead of doing a broad "this is what I'm thankful for," I'll make it easier on myself and only limit it to bookish things. Otherwise, I'll be here forever listing my dog and peanut butter.
Really, God bless you, non-Zuckerberg. I wasn't really into it at first, but with bloggy things, it's been extremely convenient and way better than Facebook would have been. Short outbursts, stalking, advertising, connecting...if you have a blog and aren't on Twitter, fix that.
When I say authors, I don't mean the bad kind. I mean the good kind, the ones who interacted with me on Twitter and the ones who have agreed to do interviews with me. Those authors are the greatest and I don't think this blog experience would have been nearly as fun without those interactions where I could fangirl.
Of course, the most bookishly thankful thing is all of you! Bloggy friends, readers, and the whole community in general. Sure, there will be drama, but I've been thankful that I haven't been sucked into it. The whole reason I started blogging was to connect with others and have someone I can speak in all caps with. I'm incredibly thankful for all of you.
For a broke and stingy girl like myself who was raised to not buy a book unless you're sure you knew it was good, this place is heaven. So many options and wonderful shelves.
This is perceived as the big, bad online shop for the book world since it's taking away book store profits, but it's also cheap. And if you're a prime member (like my family), you get free shipping. Nothing beats walking out of a store with a physical copy, but saving about $10 sure comes close.
Publicists (and everyone else behind a book)
I'm thankful for everyone behind publishing a book and all their hard work, but I especially think of publicists since they have to deal with bloggers and our ARC requests. With that said, I give a thankful shout out to Disney-Hyperion and their super kind people who reply to me.
She gets to be outside of the author headline because I thank her for introducing me to dystopian. I was strictly contemporary before her because I had misconceived notions about any other genre. Thanks to her, I saw a different kind of MC and a whole different world.
Because they're awesome and my day is made when I get one in the mail.
Obviously, if I have a copy, I love the book. But I'm thankful for them because I know that if I don't have a library book lined up, I can fall back on my trusty books to reread. The best present I ever got was a box full of books. As for the bookshelves, where else would I put my books?
I'm the kind of reader that likes to listen to music as I read. It helps me connect even further with the story and the mood when the right song is playing.
What are some bookish things you're thankful for?
