15 Benefits of Booknerds as Friends – #fanfun

1. “You know about SO MANY great books. All. The. Time.” (@sqq100)

2. “Lots of wonderful late-night talks about books and how fun reading is.” (Katie Morrissey)

3. “You can know that they REALLY want to be your friend. Most book nerds don’t have time for casual friendships and, generally speaking, would rather be spending their free time with fictional people than real people. If a book nerd wants to spend time with you, that’s the greatest compliment you can get.” (Faye Lilley)

4. “Free grammar corrections.” (@bart_carter)

5. “They don’t talk when you’re reading. They just pick up their book.” (Michelle Vollers)

6. “Help to avoid bad books.” (Damian McMillan)

7. “You read books that are outside of your comfort zone. You’re no longer stuck in one genre.” (@RitaHumola)

8. “Victorian comebacks and random quotations.” (@livesingularity)

9. “Every time you visit their house, you have pretty bookshelves to look at!” (@profsslockhart)

10. “You’ll have someone to book shop with who won’t rush you!” (Diana Rivero)

11. “Unending supply of new words to use in regular conversations.” (@iCoder1978)

12. “Always knowing what the movie adaptation left out.” (@veragfischer)

13. “They’re easy to shop for.” (Denise Lacombe)

14. “Book swapping. I love it when this happens: ‘I found this on my bookcase and thought you would like it.'” (Lucy Hutchinson)

15. “They understand you.” (@AngelaRoquemore)

This is just a sample…

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
