Question of the Week: What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get your hands on any particular book?
Hmm interesting question... I guess the craziest thing I've done to get a book is to totally heckle the author that I won it from. I won an ARC of Wings of the Wicked (the second book in the Angelfire series) by Courtney Allison Moulton, and I was so excited that I refused to stop bothering her about it. She may hate me now, but I love her books and I just wanted to read this amazing sequel as soon as possible. Totally worth it. Also, I bought 2 copies of Clockwork Prince (yes, only 2), so that I could get the Barnes & Noble edition with the letter from Will to Tessa, and a signed copy from Books of Wonder.
Now the things I've done to get signed books are different. I've driven miles upon miles through the worst L.A. traffic to go to book signings. I even asked my Fiction teacher to pick up a signed book for me because I couldn't make it the launch party (Legend by Marie Lu) and she lived near the bookstore. The farthest I've driven for a signature is over 2 1/2 hours away to the launch party for Tahereh Mafi's Shatter Me. I met a few people from other signings I'd been to and there was Shatter Me cake, so definitely worth it. I also found a Dark Days tour stop in Lansing, MI when I was out there visiting family last summer. Again, so worth it to go. That was the best signing I've been to yet, because I got to have dinner with a few Midwest bloggers, Courtney Allison Moulton, Veronica Roth, Josephine Angelini, Aimee Carter, Aprilynne Pike, and Ellen Schreiber. It was insane to get to meet these authors whose books I love, and to really get to know them.
