Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for December 25th, 2018 is: Books I Hope I Find Under My Christmas Tree This Morning. I personally don’t celebrate Christmas, so I’m going to be talking about all the books I want rare and special editions of.
