Follow Friday (1)


Follow Friday is a weekly meme created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Every week one lucky blogger is featured, and the featured blogger is followed by all participants. On top of that, participants also follow each other. Win win for everyone!

Since this is NOT a blogger blog, I would like to be followed via RSS (which was recently updated to Feedburner), or by subscribing by email (insert your email at the top left sidebar). For people subscribing by email, don’t forget that there is a monthly contest for email subscribers only, and this month I’m giving away a copy of Incarnate, Under The Never Sky or Everneath to one lucky winner.

Question: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done for a book?


What a fun question! I must admit that aside from nagging for my Mom to drive me to the midnight release of one of the Harry Potter books (now the craziness is over, I can’t even recall which one), which was a three hour drive, I haven’t done a lot of absolutely crazy things for books yet. My Mom is a saint really, for putting up with me even as I got it in my mind that I needed to go to the release of Harry Potter in the dead of night. I remember staying up the whole night to read the book as well. Great times!

So what’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for a book! Please leave your website address below so I can follow you back! 🙂


  1. I started reading Harry Potter late so I missed all the fun midnight releases. I did see some of the movies at midnight!

    Harry Potter related things seem to be popular! I would wake up early the day before and hang out at the bookstore before they opened to get a line ticket. Luckily since it was summer, the heat didn’t come out that early!

  11. I see a lot of “crazy” stories involve Harry Potter, including mine. It nice to see so many Potterheads lol. Thanks for stopping by, I am following back through email.

  12. Harry Potter was awesome though- your mom probably bought herself a copy when you weren’t looking. My Dad went for me so that it was a surprise in the morning. I remember that on that day, I did nothing but read. I don’t even remember eating, I was that absorbed and desperate to finish.

  13. Thanks for visiting me. Followed back. That was awesome of your mom to help you. 😀 They’re the best.

  14. Hi, what an awesome mum you have! Thanks for stopping by, i’m following you back. Have a great weekend.

  16. Those midnight release parties did look like fun! I didn’t put it on my blog, but the last book the craziest thing I’ve done once i’ve HAD a book was to read it non stop for 24 hours. I messed up my sleep schedule for like a week LOL It was SO worth it though! 😀
