The Bookish Joy of Bookish People

Today I am writing a letter all about bookish joy, as prompted by CHCC YA Fest for the Bookish Joy Blog Fest ahead of the YA Fest on 12th May.

CHCC Bookish Joy Blog Fest

Dear Bookish People,

You really are the best type of people.

I love the passion of the book community. I love the togetherness, the way that bookish people all have such passion and generosity.

I love librarians, those sorters of books, curators of shelves, recommenders of books. School librarians have a special place in my heart. They encourage exploration and ignite imagination. They create bookish people and nurture them. My high school librarian was The Best, she was the person who made me a reader rather than someone who occasionally picked up books.

I love booksellers, passionate pushers of books, hosters of author signings, servers of wine. I love that I can walk in and ask for a recommendation and when it's given it's given from the heart and full of enthusiasm. And I love that the staff at my local bookshop understand how often I lose my tickets (every time).

Bloggers are basically My People. Those people that love books so much that they have to shout about it, just like me. I love that there's always something to chat about. I love the questions: what are you reading now? What have you just finished? What's next?

When it comes down to it, I love you all. Very much.


PS. You can get 10% off tickets to Chadwell Heath Community Centre YA Fest with the code YAFEST10.


  1. This is a very sweet post! I love bookish people, too, however I’ve fallen so far out of reading that I don’t know if I would class myself as one anymore. I’d love to get back into it. And working in a bookshop one day is still my ultimate dream!
