Follow Friday! (9)

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

When I was growing up I was a total book addict. Reading was my absolutely favorite thing to do. One Saturday I really wanted to go to the library to get some new books to read. I must've been in the 5th or 6th grade. My dad didn't want to take me to the library so I told him that I had books that were due. He told me that we would go drop them off but I couldn't get any new books. He was not happy with me when he found out that the books weren't really due.

As an adult, I've taken my daughter to the bookstore at midnight to get more than one Harry Potter book. 


  1. Ha! Oh I could walk around the library for hours. It's still, even as an adult, one of my favorite places to be.

  2. :D A kid has to do what a kid has to do to get books, lol. I love that you're supportive of your daughter's book love, it's one of those healthy "addictions" I think we should all support enthusiastically.

    Thanks for stopping by, following you back.
    Have a great weekend!
