Follow Friday (25)

Feature & Follow is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get your hands on any particular book?

Let me start this off by saying I am an incredibly boring person--I always follow the rules and I never do anything that would make me the center of attention. So, as you may have already guessed, I've never done anything crazy in my entire life. Although if I was going to do something crazy, it probably would be for a book.

So the "craziest" thing I've done to get a book is, I don't know, buy one on the day it came out? Oh, I guess one time I was at Costco and there was an author signing books, except no one was stopping at her table. So I stopped by and chatted with her and bought her book because I felt so bad. That's probably not crazy by anyone else's standards, but I hate talking to strangers so it was a big deal for me at the time.

What about you? What crazy things have you done for the love of a book?


  1. I know, this is a hard question because I haven't done anything crazy for a book either. Happy Follow Friday. Old follower.

    My FF: Jennifer@Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy + Paranormal Romance

  2. I don't do anything crazy either. All I've done is wait in lines for the HP books - which I don't consider to be all that crazy.

    Guess we're both boring! ;P

  3. Happy Follow Friday! I haven't done anything very crazy either. Old follower hopping through.

  4. I do crazy things day in and day out and I haven't done anything crazy for books!

  5. I'm not overly crazy either. new follower. here is my post feel free to hop on over

  6. I think most people haven't done anything crazy for a book. That's a little sad about the lonely Costco author, but cool that you got the book. Was it the Orem Costco? Seems like there are always lonely authors there. :(

  7. New follower here! That was sweet of you to talk to the author even though it made you uncomfortable! It probably made their day! Here is my FF if you'd like to follow back:
