Blogspiration (52): Happiness & Bookiness

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author's choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books, which is kind of the same thing

And did you know today marks the official 52nd week of Blogspiration? That's a whole year, and a WHOLE lot of inspiration! Thanks so much to everyone who's made Blogspiration what it is. It's been a joy doing this thing with you, and as we kick off a brand new calendar year, and a brand new year of Blogspiration, I hope it's a good one for all of you!

  1. Because, of course, BOOK IS ALL YOU NEED IN THIS DAMNED LIFE. And Tv.

    Tv's good. Stories in general are. Yes, stories. Nom nom nom nom nom nom.

  2. Ugh, Sarah, you have no idea how much I've missed your Blogspiration posts... and everything has gotten so much prettier than before, I can't believe it! Thanks for sharing this; it's a great thing to see on a Sunday morning. And, yes, happiness = books! And friends who love the same books! Happy New Year, love. :*

  3. What a coincidence! I actually saw this same quote (different graphic, obviously) yesterday. :D I was thinking of putting it as my Blogspiration post, but found another one, so yeah. ^^ Anyway, totally agree with this one. Books are just happiness in another form. <3

  4. I definitely can't agree with this quote any more! Whenever I need a pick me up, a book will just about do the trick. :) Great quote!

  5. OMG. It's been a year. Wow. Congrats on the awesome meme.

    And no, buying books and happiness is EXACTLY the same thing.

  6. So cute! And so true! Haha I love this one :)

  7. It's definitely the same thing. When I buy a new book and I put it on the shelves, I feel incredibly happy. I sometimes even do my awkward happy dance :p

  8. Unless it's a book that makes you sad or angry or depressed. :P

    Great post, Sarah! Books are wonderful little gems and should be treasured as such! :)

    So excited to be posting my first Blogspiration with my new blog! :)

  9. Oh, I love it! Books are my remedy to feeling sad and this represents me so well haha! Love the feature btw! <3 I will definitely participate soon!

  10. This is so true. Well, unless it's food, then I guess that doesn't count...right?
    But books make me happy. Even if they are depressing. They make me go into Rainbow -land. La-la-la! XD

    New follower!

  11. Hooray for a year of blogspirations! You know what Sarah, blogspiration was basically how I started to make actual friends on the blogosphere, and talk to people, and get/make comments, so for that reason, I will always love it. *hugs*
    And yes and yay to this post. Just... yes. Books - stories - are so powerful, and are such a big part of life, of my life, and I am so glad.
    Hooray for buying pages and pages of happiness!

  12. I think this has to be my fave so far - books, books, books - what more do we need?

  13. Happy year of Blogspiration! I haven't been doing it for that long, and a lot of the time I'm not that regular with joining up, but I've loved each week I have particepated and I've met so many fantastic new bloggers because of it! Also, fantastic quote. It is accurate. Scarily accurate.

  14. Happy new year to YOU! ♥

    Whether you've been doing it long or not, you kind of feel like part of the family (not even Kristin does it every week!)

    Heheh, I love this quote ♥

  15. Well I have clearly been gone from the world of book blogging for too long, because OMG your blog turned gorgeous without me noticing! Love the new design, and love the Blogspiration quote (as always) :)

  16. NINA! ♥♥♥
    Aw, thank you, lovely! I modified the template when I moved over to Wordpress. It's funny, I only changed it slightly, but I used a VERY different font and it looks super different.

    I hope you're well! I'm loving your blog and the direction and EVERYTHING ♥

  17. Bahahaha! I LOVE this quote. I guess I should be really happy 'cuz I've been buying books like crazy the past month. It does make me squee a little when I look at all the pretty books on my shelves. :)

  18. EXACTLY. Well, other than friends to talk about them with ;D

  19. Ah yes, that's like 100% true with me. If I'm angry at someone for some reason and they tell me they're going to buy me a book? Anger gone :D
