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

Well I can't say I have done anything overly crazy. When Cinder came out I went to Books- a-Million on release day .. took them an hour to tell me that they couldn't find it and it was still on the truck, so went to two Walmarts and they didn't have it yet , and I've entered two contest to win it and lost, so I currently still do not have the book Cinder but I do have it on hold at the Library .. I'm 22 out of 24 on the list. I'm not sure if my hunt for the book is crazy but it sure is persistent. :)
So tell me what is the craziest thing you've ever done to get a book?

Thanks for stopping by - happy to return the visit (and the follow).

I remember waiting in the store once and insisting they open the boxes in the back to get me my book, because it was release day and I wasn't waiting any longer. LOL

Thanks for becoming a follower of my site. I'm now following you back. I don't think looking for a book you want is ever crazy. We can't afford too many luxuries in life and books make things better.

I know how you feel when you are looking for a book, and no one seems to have it.

I think the craziest thing I've done was for the Harry Potter book releases. It was/is an obsession that I won't regret.

Jessi said...

It took me awhile to track down Cinder too but I finally got it last weekend! (Thank you Amazon). I'm still trying to win a copy of it too.

I've also been hoping for Cinder and joined a couple of contests too which I think I lost as well. I'll prolly wait for either of friends pick up a copy and borrow the book from them. :D

Jesse said...

Oh Cinder! I've heard some great things about it. I have the opposite problem though. I got and ARC of it a while back, but haven't had the time to read it. I want to soooo badly though. Having it sitting their tempting me is torture!! Hope you get a copy of it soon! If love to see what you think of it!

Eileen said...

I want to read it even more now that it sounds so popular! The good thing is that you'll be able to read Cinder eventually, right? My library system's a little outdated and doesn't get new releases until well after their release date!

Taylor @ A Booky Wonderland said...
