Follow me Friday (#4)


This is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee.com and alisoncanread.com

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

A: I have a rather embarrassing story to go with this question. When Breaking Dawn was coming out my local book store was having a "midnight masquerade" to celebrate its release. Well my cousin and I decided to go full out as we were extremely excited for Breaking Dawns release. So we bought some fabric and had our Nonna (grandma) create capes that we thought were something the Vulturi would wear. Along with the capes we made ourselves look extremely pale and dead. With all this we walked into our bookstore looking like the Vulturi. Everybody loved our getup. We had pictures taken with people AND our picture was put in our local newspaper. It was quite honestly a lot of fun. On top of this we stayed at the bookstore until midnight, waiting in line until around 2 in the morning, just so we could get a copy of Breaking Dawn. I was exhausted and will probably never do anything like this again.

Yup, that has to be the craziest thing I've ever done to get a book.

  3. Those are such fun nights! I didn't wait in line for the book but I did wait in line at 3am for a wristband to meet Taylor Lautner, Edi and Rachel. Then went back later that day and waited in line to actually meet them! Totally worth though :)

    Thanks for stopping by happy FF!
