Top Ten Tuesday: Good Omens

Top Ten Tuesday

Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week she asks us to share lists on the following:

April 17: Freebie (create your own topic): Signs I’m into a book/series/author.

The idea for this list struck me a couple of months back and I almost wrote it up for a bookish thoughts post.  When I checked out the upcoming TTT list topics I noticed the upcoming freebie list and decided to use it for this instead.

Note:  My scheduling of this post was off,  damn you failing eyesight that makes a tiny 1 look like a 7….  I tried to redact this and save it for today but some of you might have had a sneak peek of today’s list.  Sorry for any confusion.

Ten signs that I’m really into a book or series.

  1. Dreaming: When I’m reading or rereading a particularly long series I’m enjoying the plot and characters will eventually work their way into my dreams.
  2. Autobuy:  There are fewer names on the list but I still have a few that I will buy automatically on release day.
  3. Imaginary Conversations:  Okay, I admit it… When I’m doing some menial task like mowing the lawn or cleaning out the chicken coop I will sometimes have conversations with characters in my favorite books.  Seems weird to me but it sure does make the chore pass faster.
  4. Reading Excerpts:  If I LOVE my current read and find it particularly funny I will sometimes follow my husband around the house reading him excerpts.  Got him to read The Martian that way!
  5. Library Suggestion:  When I truly enjoy a book I will often times put it on the buy list at work.
  6. Pimp that Book: Number five leads to me recommending it to any and all patrons that I think it might be a good fit for.
  7. Stalking the Author: Not for real, but I usually follow the authors I enjoy on social media.
  8. Reread: Wanting to read a book more than once is always a good sign that I loved it.
  9. Home Library: Since working in a library I have become less sentimental about a book and only those titles I truly love earn a permanent spot on my stacks.
  10. Investigate: I will quickly begin hunting down other titles by that author to enjoy.

What signs do you have that you are enjoying a particular book, series or author?  Share in the comments!
