Top Ten Tuesday: Things that make me instantly want to read a book.

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.

I think this is going to be an easy list for me. Top Ten Things That Make Me Want To Read a Book:

  1. Church. The Bible of course.
  2. A Time Travel Theme.
  3. My Favorite Author Releases Her Next Book. Jodi Taylor, who also writes two different time travel series. Go figure.
  4. A Cup of Coffee
  5. An Overflowing TBR
  6. The Power Goes Out. No more computer or tv, and I instantly pick up a book. Hopefully my Kindle is charged.
  7. A brand new book comes in the mail and it’s so much more attractive than my other books because of its newness.
  8. Laying down in bed. That always makes me want to read, but I fall asleep quickly.
  9. Snow Days. I always read The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
  10. July. When it’s super hot outside, I always read a Christmas book so I’m reminded of trees and holly and cold, cold snow.

How about you? What makes you instantly want to read a book?

  1. A new book by a favorite author is always a kind of comfort type read that I’m always excited to read. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my website today! I appreciate this very much.


  2. Yes to quite a few of these! A snow day or laying in bed always makes me want to read, as do power outages, since it removes so many of the distractions that make me stop reading.


      1. Oh I definitely had that when I was in South Africa, so many times when the power went out (they have regular power cuts to help with the demand on the electricity grid) I wouldn’t have charged my laptop or phone and they would die on me in the two hour period whilst the power was out!
