This week’s topic is…Outrageous/Crazy/Uncharacteristic Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books

  1. Spent over $100.00 on a special edition.
  2. Patiently waited hours outside a bookstore for the midnight release.
  3. Traded multiple “rare” ARCs for one ARC that I just had to have for my collection.
  4. Drove over 8-10 hours, on multiple occasions, to author/books events.
  5. Started collecting multiple editions of the same book. 
  6. Stayed up past 3:00 a.m. on a school night/work night just to finish reading a book. (This still happens, lol).
  7. I will drive around to multiple local bookstores in the tri-state area looking for a new release until I finally find it. 
  8. Spent hours standing and walking around at a book event, carrying around two totes of books, while having extreme lower back pain. 
  9. Rereading a book two times in one month.
  10. Created both a book blog and a Bookstagram account to RAVE about books, and I still have no idea what I am doing…hahahaha.
