Top 5 Reasons To Be With a Bookworm #TopFiveTuesday #T5T #Bookworm

Just for fun, I’m creating four posts about “bookworms” in September:
“Top 5 Ways to Catch a Bookworm”
“Top 5 Bookworm Problems”
“Top 5 Reasons to be With a Bookworm” (today’s post)
“Top 5 Things a Bookworm Would Never Do”

Top 5 Reasons To Be With a Bookworm

I’m linking up today with Meeghan at Meeghan Reads for Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Bookworm Problems.

For me, being with a bookworm is never a “problem.” It’s always a joy. However, if you were a nonreader, I can see how being with a bookworm might be a problem.

A Bookworm Has Book Recommendations

My greatest delight is thinking of the perfect book for you, your spouse, or your mom, or your best friend, or….you get the idea! I love to match books with their readers. Need a book recommendation? Ask a bookworm!

Book People Are the Best People

  • Book People are well-read on a variety of topics
  • Reading encourages compassion, tolerance, thoughtfulness, and understanding
  • They tend to be interesting conversationalists
  • Book People can entertain themselves anywhere and are never bored
  • Avid readers usually read a great deal of historical fiction (if history is your interest, you might find interesting conversation)
  • Readers usually have good imaginations

How about you? Do you have a bookworm in your life? What do you love about her?

Bookworms are Never Bored

For instance, your bookworm friend drives you to the doctor and it’s a long wait. No problem for a bookworm who always carries a book (physical or digital) with her. A long drive ahead? No worries for a bookworm who always has an audio book recommendation. A thirty minute wait in the school pickup line or an hour at soccer practice? A bookworm’s delight! You are with a person who has an errand……a bookworm is happy to sit in the car and read! Saturday morning with nothing to do? A bookworm might go to her local bagel shop and read while she munches on a whole grain bagel with strawberry cream cheese. Bookworms are so easy to entertain!

I disappear into books. What's your superpower?

QOTD: Do you have a bookworm in your life? What is one of your reasons to be with a bookworm?

once upon a time there was a girl who really loved books. It was me. The end.

Happy Reading Bookworms!

“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, teach us about our world, and help us to understand human experience.”
~Madeleine Riley, Top Shelf Text

  1. I’m also adding that book people know a lot of trivia, especially those of us that read historical fiction. We’re popular during game nights!

  2. I’m definitely in agreement with number 5. It astonishes me the number of people I see waiting in train stations/hospitals/dentists etc that have nothing with them to read.

  3. I have two friends that I would classify as bookworms. We share books, recommend them to each other and talk about what we are reading. Wonderful to share my love of books with friends. I am loving this series, Carol.

  4. I am a bookworm

    So true- bookworms have wonderful imaginations. I have a wild imagination- had that since I was a kid. One of the things I love about being a bookworm is connecting and falling in love with characters
