Top Ten Tuesday- “Outrageous” Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books

Hi everyone! I’m back with my fifth Top Ten Tuesday post and this week’s prompt is to list the Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books. We book lovers have done a lot of “outrageous” things that we don’t consider to be “outrageous”…I mean, I don’t.. not really.

Top Ten Tuesday- "Outrageous" Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to Jana @ 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.

So, here I am.. just a book lover listing all the things I have done (and probably will in the future) for my love of books…

  • Started my own Book Blog and Bookstagram: Well, it hasn’t been THAT long since I started book blogging and clicking book photos( @book_rambler) but I can’t believe I took this leap. I used to blog about fashion and lifestyle but fell out of it and am so happy blogging about books now.

  • Reading all night long: What? This is outrageous? Girl, if you could hear my Mom screaming at me during 5am to shut the damn book and go to sleep, then yeah I guess you can shelve it under “outrageous” category.

  • Reading while eating: I want to credit my parents for pointing this “outrageous” thing out to me. Is it really though ? Outrageous? If y’all can watch TV while eating, I sure as h*ck can read. Yeah, I literally said that to my parents.

  • Reading while walking: Alright, this is outrageous ’cause I walked into a lamp post while reading and the bump on my head was no joke. Lesson learned.

  • Kiss interruption: Mid kiss, I had to flee because I just remembered that I left my book with my baby niece( who had given my book a thorough bath). In my opinion, this isn’t outrageous because I’m glad my niece interrupted but really ? did she really have to play with my book and give it a bath * cries like a baby *

  1. The weirdest thing that I do is probably listen to my books while I shower. I set my kindle to read aloud so I don’t have to stop reading and can shower. I do that all the time. I read and eat, read until I fall asleep and read and shower.

  2. I think this qualifies; I have shelves and bags of unread books, plus a few waiting on my Kindle, but I have to read them in a specific order. Example: I’m waiting for a book I requested from the library and won’t read one I already have because it’s not next on the list. My love of how I read books is outrageously weird.

  3. I think blogging was the big thing for me, too. xD I had never wanted to be a blogger, never though about being a blogger, and never thought I’d have anything to say. Yet, here we are. Because as it turns out, you can’t shut me up about books lol! I definitely do the reading while eating/walking, too, so you’re not alone in that!

    Here’s my TTT post.

  4. Well, I don’t think any of these things are *too* outrageous. I can’t ‘eat while reading’ or ‘eat while walking’ though. I’m infamously uncoordinated so it’s important to watch where I’m walking and make sure my food goes in my mouth instead of on my shirt. 😛
