Follow Friday- the craziest thing?

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

Ah.  Last year Karen Marie Moning offered up the entire Fever series signed on her forum. All you had to do was post the most comments on her blog during the 7 days the contest was open. Sweet Baby Jesus I thought I'd lose my fingers by the time I finally got those books! By the end I had over 2700 posts. It came down to the last second with one other girl and I won with like 7 posts. My hands were shaking there at the end so bad I could hardly type. Totally worth it though :)

  1. Oh man! That sounds intense. But at least you have a crazy story to tell now!

    1. Was pretty fun and entertaining. By the end though the two of us were just begging for it to be over. I think her fingers were protesting too :) Thanks for stopping by!

  6. New follower! Ha! It sounds like it was a fun experience. I would do some pretty crazy stuff to get JK Rowling to sign a copy of HP for me. I love you blog background, by the way. It looks like a lovely watercolor painting.
