Follow Friday

Friday Follow is a blog hop that was started by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week a different question is posted by our hosts and we wil answer! This is a great opportunity for bloggers to network and interact.

This week’s question – What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on any particular book?

Ok, I'm going to be really boring here.  I don't think I've ever done anything really crazy to get my hands on a book - waited for hours and hours to get a book signed, yes.  But really, I don't think any book is that important.  Don't get me wrong, I love my books, but just not to the extent of craziness.  I get enough of that day-to-day.  Not sure what Christinabean might have done though?

Christinabean here.  OK, so I have to admit that I have done some crazy things to get my hands on a book.  The first one off the top of my head is a Twitter contest.  I came across a contest for a signed Melissa de la Cruz title and knew I just had to get my hands on it.  The person who was the 272nd commenter to their contest tweet would win.  So I sat there for the next couple hours tweeting away.  Just random comments and then I started getting original and started complimenting the tweeter.  In the end, there were two of us tweeting like madwomen and I lucked out.  Some people sing for their supper.  I tweet for my books....  :)

  1. I have never done anything crazy either, its not like a particular book is gonna go out of stock & while I contemplated standing in line for hours for a mere signature, I'll save that for the FAVORITE authors.

    My TGIF & FF((:
    -thank you&come again.

  2. I did act like a total fangirl when I met Lesley Livingston a few months back, (which is rather embarassing at my age) does that count?
