Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten I'm Thankful For

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten I'm Thankful For 

Here's my somewhat bookish thankfulness list:

1.  That I live right next to the library.  It's amazing.

2.  That I still have PLENTY of books in my bookecases that I haven't read

3.  That I have lots of books that are well-worn loves on my shelves

4.  That my TBR list is ginormous (not too shabby of a problem really)

5.  That my hubby totally supports my reading habit :)

6.  That we actually have a room dedicated to books (I hesitate to call it a library...bc it really isn't) but a whole room for books yayyy!

7.  For my family (both nuclear and extended)

8.  For my Indy and Btown friends...gotta love having people in your life that are always down to do things!

9.  For my hubs...I know he counts as family but he's so awesome he gets a double-mention :)

10.  For music and cooking and movies and crafting and travel and so many other wonderful aspects of life!

Towering TBR: It just keeps growing!!

This new segment on the blog came about because my desire to read new books vastly outstrips my ability to dwindle down my TBR list...oh, to have more free time!  Reading 2 chunksters simultaneously does not help my cause either!  Newest TBR list additions:

1. Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner...historical fantasy taking place in an alternate dictatorial society - sounds unique!  This one is sitting on my bedside table thanks to my local library (now if I could only finish Mists).

2.  Night Film by Marisha Pessl...I've been wanting to read another thriller and this one is getting lots of buzz!

3.  Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain...I've heard really good things about this author and this sounds like a really good book club choice!

4.  The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley...been praised as better than The Time Traveler's Wife.  Okay, I'm definitely interested.

5.  The Whole Golden World by Kristina Riggle...story of a teacher/student romance - another good pick for a book club.
