Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Book Characters Who are Book Nerds

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke & The Bookish

It's Tuesday. I really love today's topic because it fits me. It's the top ten characters who are book nerds, work in bookstores, readers, etc. I'm pretty sure that my first one will be on EVERYONE's list today.

1. Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling - She reads everything. If it's in print somewhere, she's read it.


2. Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables Series by Lucy Maud Montgomery - Anne's a dreamer. She's always reading something. I'm pretty sure her favorite was the "Lady of Shalott."


3. Meredith Graham from Waterfalls, Glenbrooke Book 6, by Robin Jones Gunn - Meri's an editor, not necessarily a reader. But since she works in a book related industry, I added her to the list.


4. Megan McClare from the Heart of San Francisco Series by Julie Lessman - The quiet sibling out of the McClare clan, Megan is reading something. She even tries to escape into her books in the book that is HER story.


5. Jo March from Little Women by Lousia May Alcott - It's been a long time since I read this book, but if I remember correctly, Jo was always writing out stories for her sisters to act out. Beth may have been the actual reader though.

6. Beauty from Beauty by Robin McKinley - She's so much like Disney's Belle. But she loves books and in fact it's the first enchantment of the castle that seeps into her heart.


7. Meg Murray from the Wrinkle in Time Books by Madeline L'Engle - Meg's smart. She's in trouble a lot though. But she does love to read.


8. Matilda from Matilda by Roald Dahl - She's an exceptionally gifted child who escapes from her ghastly life into the world of literature. Until she gets sent to school that is.


9. Encyclopedia Brown from the Encyclopedia Brown Series by Donold J. Sobol - I remember reading some of these as a child. He's fascinated with all things science, but he's a pretty good detective too.


10. Sherlock Holmes from the Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - I've read most of these, if not all. The extremely observant detective notices the little things in the details. Things that he could only pick p by honing his logical reasoning and deductive skills.

  1. Your list is so good! Anne of Green Gables is one of my mother's favourite childhood reads and when I asked she definitely agreed with you on that pick! I have yet to read that book though... Oops. And of course, Hermione is a great choice. Great list!

  4. Jo and Anne, love those two classic lit characters. I don't know if the "Anne" books are technically considered "classic," but hey, I'm using it. :) Yay for Sherlock, too! Love his character. Should have included him. :)
