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

I don't think I've done anything crazy...which saddens me now, as that's so boring!! Um...the most I've done is wait in line for a couple of hours for the release of the Harry Potter books. Oh, wait! Does flying to another city, just so I could buy Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince the day it was released, count? I just remembered that I did this! I lived in a small rural town then, with no bookstore...my options were to fly across state (about a 2 hour flight), or order it online and wait a few weeks for it to be delivered. When I consider 2 nights accommodation + airfares, that book ended up costing a lot...but it was so worth it, and honestly, I'd do it again! So...is that crazy?!

How about you? Done anything crazy for a book?

Apologies for the late posting of this - and the influx of this week's other posts! I had begun drafting them earlier in the week, and then Life happened...as it does...and it wasn't until yesterday I was able to get on to my blog...only to find I couldn't log in for some mysterious reason! But it's all sorted now, and better late than never, right?!

Have a great weekend!!
