Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Reason I Love the Book World

7 Jun
  1. I love books, that’s easy enough.
  2. I love my job.  I wanted to be a librarian from the first time I visited a library when I was little.  Even those days when I go home and pour myself a glass of wine because it’s been one of those days, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
  3. I love blogging – sharing ideas with other people in the book field is great.  It makes the job easier and more exciting.
  4. I love learning.  I never thought I’d be directing theater shows, explaining science to 1st graders or leading yoga storytime in front of HUGE groups of people, but I really enjoy learning and this job lets me learn something new on almost a daily basis.
  5. I love children’s book authors and illustrators – these people are so genuine and caring.  They truly love what they do and can be so impactful in a child’s life.
  6. I love librarian friends.  My close friends really have no idea what my daily work life looks like, but I can talk to librarians and they just know.
  7. I love Twitter.  It’s a great way to connect to authors, illustrators, librarians, book lovers, teachers and more – all people who love books as much as I do.
  8. I love the kids.  Finding kids the books they want and need is like a mystery, scavenger hunt, guessing game all in one, and it’s one of my favorite parts.
  9. I love publishers.  Especially when they get as excited as you do about upcoming releases.  I love getting ARCs of new books and getting a jump on the season’s reading.  NetGalley and Edelweiss are super helpful in getting access to eBook ARCs.
  10. I love bookstores.  There’s no place I’d rather shop, the only problem I have is that I want too many books.
