Top 10 Tuesday: Bookish Things I’m Thankful For

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl
  1. Public libraries — obviously — this is where I get most of my books! 
  2. my fellow bloggers: especially Cleo & Ruth and Karen — These were the blogs I was reading before I decided to start my own blog, so thanks for the inspiration 
  3. The Classics Club — I recently joined, and I hope to get to know more bloggers through the club!
  4.  That Artsy Reader Girl  for hosting Top Ten Tuesday
  5. Project Gutenberg — a great resource 
  6. All my wonderful GoodReads friends
  7. All my GoodReads groups; I’m probably in too many of these, but they’re a great outlet for discussions!
  8. The Silmarillion Primer @ Tor, by Jeff LaSala — “A guide for new readers” but well worth reading whether you’re new to the book or not. I just posted about this, but it’s great. It’s not the first time they’ve done a series on one of my favorite books, just the most recent. (In the past, they’ve covered LotR, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, and the works of Neil Gaiman).
  9. Readathons — I’ve done Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon a few times and participated in the GoodReads group, and I had a great time doing it. I missed the last one, though. I’ve also done the Bout of Books week-long readathon 3 times, and I will probably sign up for the next one, which is in January.
  10. The Poetry Foundation – Earlier this month I spent some time exploring their very comphrensive page on the poetry of World War I. The whole website is a great resource, though.

Published by Beth @ Beth's Bookish Thoughts

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.
