"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my
lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other
bloggers who share their lists here.
This week, our topic is Bookish Characters (these could be readers, writers, authors, librarians, professors, etc.)
Of course, I had to choose readers. Some of my favourite books are about readers, some of my favourite book characters are readers.
Meet my reading characters:

They are all loveable in their own way but I think we can connect to them so well because they love reading as much as we do.
