This week’s theme is:

Bookish Wins


I had to think a little about what a bookish win means to me. After a little while of thinking, I came up with these six examples. Here is my list and enjoy. Also, I would love to know what you consider a bookish win. Let me know!!


  1. Getting a much wanted book off hold from the library
  2. Talking with other bloggers about books
  3. Blogging about books
  4. Giving a recommendation for a book and seeing that person reading it
  5. Talking to my kids about books that we both have read
  6. Having no shame about being a book nerd and loving it.

  1. Louise H – I have always loved reading and spent my late teens/early twenties reading Anne McCaffrey, David Eddings, Katherine Kerr, Mercedes Lackey, Julian May, Andre Norton and Marian Zimmer Bradley, to name but a few! Whilst science fiction and fantasy are still my go-to genres, I now prefer that they feature a romance to. Whilst I am mainly a romance reader, I do enjoy the occasional thriller and murder mystery and I DON'T always require a HEA. I read widely across the romance genre, with omegaverse, urban fantasy and science fiction being amongst my favourite sub-genres. I beta read for several authors and arc read for quite a few authors. However my reviews are ALWAYS warts-and-all honest, since I myself use reviews to guide my book purchases. 'm mainly a romance reader, though I do enjoy the occasional thriller or murder mystery.

    Such a great list of bookish wins. Connecting with people via books is really great.

      Thank you and it is!!!

  2. Carla – Canada – I am a retired teacher/librarian. I love to read, especially to my grandchildren. I read most genres, but lately have gravitated to cozy mysteries, romance (not erotic) and Christian Fiction. I do enjoy a good thriller every now and then, as well as some fantasy and the odd sci-fi. I have ventured into Blog tours, but I do not do well reading under pressure. I travel to Florida for 2 to 3 months in the winter (Canadian Snowbirder) but otherwise live in Windsor, Ontario Canada. Feel free to follow and comment on my blog. I try to respond to all comments.

    I think these are all bookish wins for sure. I would add recommending a book to the library and having them purchase it. I don’t do that often, but when I do, it is because I really think it is a book others would enjoy. Another for me is to connect with someone while I am in Florida after seeing them reading something I have read or that is on my TBR or looks interesting. I haven’t been able to do this recently as all travel is on hold, but look forward to it when I can head south in January 2022.

        I have my fingers crossed that I might be able to go south in November, but I won’t hold my breath.

        We’re planning to either go to Iceland (yes, I know a hot vacation spot…lmao) or the Gulf Coast of Florida. I am not holding my breath either with those.

        I want to see the Northern Lights, among other things. I prefer warm too. I’d love to go back to Aruba.

        When my daughter was living in Iqaluit, Nunavut, she got some amazing views of the Northern Lights. I have never seen them, but would love to as well.
