Happy Tuesday fellow Top Ten Tuesday-ers and friends. Since it is the third (or would you say second?) day of a new week, it’s time to participate in Top Ten Tuesday April 9 edition.
That Artsy Reader Girl | April 9: Outrageous Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books (i.e. skip meals, camped outside a bookstore, broke up with someone because they don’t like books, etc. – submitted by Aggie’s Amygdala)
I don’t feel like I’ve done outrageous things for the love of books, but will admit, I’ve done some mildly crazy things. Plus I need to put this in context. Most of us here can identify with doing some silly things because likely we’re all book nerds. But for the casual reader who maybe has a bookshelf full of books, they may think all these things we do is a bit, well, outrageous.
With that stipulation in the open, let’s make a list, and see where it takes us. (Make sure to tell me what crazy bookworm things you’ve done in the comments.) Here we go.
Top Ten Tuesday April 9
1: Book Buying aka Collecting | My book collecting can get a little out of hand. Serious. But on the other hand (as we talk about in reason 4), I do think I can be objective and let go of books easier than some people I know (ahem aka my dad).
2: Bookstagram | Not sure why I joined Instagram way back when, but I did. At first I posted sporadically and never with any “theme.” In recent years, I’m working a bit harder at defining what I like vs don’t, and to post regularly. So far, my own accountability is working out okay. (Oh, yeah, and I’ve also bought multiple copies of one book for photos. #BOOKNERD)
3: Bookstagram Props | When it comes to taking photos for Instagram (or the community I’m more a part of which is coined “bookstagram”), I buy new little things all the time. Also, it’s normal to use waffles or cookie dough in ones photos, right?
4: Unhaul | Is this really outrageous? I don’t know, but I’m including it because apparently I cannot think of many truly outrageous things for today’s list. We’ll add it here and call it good.
5: Shelfie Reorganizing / Love | I’ve moved bookshelves from room to room, space to space, and unloaded and re-loaded them. If you’ve not done this, it’s a HUGE undertaking, but weirdly, I also enjoy the task. (Also, I’ve moved furniture out of the room for bookshelf space.)

Tell me, what are some of the crazy things you’ve done for the love of a good (or many!) book? Is it bookstagram or shelf love related? Comment all of your thoughts down below! I look forward to your adventurous book nerd stories.
