Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your week is going great. Otherwise, I hope that it will start looking up in the coming days. It is my fervent hope that it will usher in positive energy, blessings, healing, and forgiveness for everyone. As it is Tuesday, it is also time for a Top 5 Tuesday update. Top 5 Tuesday was originally created by Shanah @ the Bionic Bookworm but is now currently being hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads.

his week’s topic: Top 5 ways to catch a bookworm

Bookworms can be such recluses. How can others coax bookworms from leaving their nests or out of their shells? Here are some ideas I guess. Happy reading.

Invite them for coffee. I know many bookworms love coffee. It is a staple. Entice their olfactory senses by filling the air with the seductive smell of coffee. Or you can go on a café date and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

Invite them for good food. If coffee doesn’t work, then good food will do. I know many bookworms love good food, mainly pastries. Or maybe that is just me.

Pull the bait on them by asking them about their favorite books. Bookworms can get very loquacious when asked about their favorite reads. This is me speaking from experience. Well, there is really no need to ask because some of them don’t need to be asked. They can go off without any preamble and start talking about the merits of these books. This activity can be in tandem with the others, say over a cup of coffee or with good food on the table.

Travel to popular bookish destinations. Many, if not some bookworms dream of visiting bookish destinations. It can be places depicted in the books they love. For instance, Harry Potter fans would love to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Japan. Some bookworms would also love to visit the homes (if open for public visits) or museums dedicated to popular writers. There are also a few who dreams of visiting the graves of renowned writers.

If all else fails, go on a bookstore or a library date. Nothing catches a bookworm’s attention more than the idea of being in the company of more books.
