Follow Friday! (2)

Follow Friday is a weekly feature hosted by Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read! It's a great opportunity to meet new bloggers and connect with fellow book lovers!!

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

My answer'll probably be really boring compared to everyone else's since it wasn't exactly crazy, but I think the craziest thing I've done (though I can say I have no regrets!) was waiting to get the 6th Harry Potter book. I went to a small book release party at a local bookstore but when midnight came around and they were about to let people buy the books, the line was in no way organized so some of us ended up nearly pushed out the door! The line snaked everywhere in the store and it was rather messy until a manager managed to get us all in a somewhat organized line! Everyone was so excited, though, and it was a lot of fun. We were all swapping theories on what would happen and what "half blood prince" was referring to while we were waiting!

It took half of forever and plenty of getting jostled around but I got my hands on a copy of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince! Then of course like the bookworm that I am, I stayed up all night to read it!

So what is your craziest story??

I'm a bit jealous that I didn't get to go to all th Harry Potter release parties - I wasn't into it at the time. My little sister would go and then stay up all night reading - silly me? I made fun of her. (Who's laughing now? Not me... LOL! )

Stop by and see my TGIF / Follow Friday this week!
