Follow Friday (30)


FOLLOW MY BOOK BLOG FRIDAY IS HOSTED BY PARAJUNKEE AND ALLISON CAN READ.


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


Honestly, I haven't done anything crazy to get a book. But, for Christmas, my hubby and I played a game for my Christmas present books.
He gave me 15 minutes to find the books that I want. The catch was that I had to be within $5 each way of his amount. But, he didn't tell me to amount. I know! How do I do that?! Thankfully, I know my hubby pretty well.
I ended up running around the YA section of Barnes & Noble looking for the books that I wanted. I did get some strange looks, and Cohl laughed while he timed me. It was stressful and incredibly fun! And my hubby enjoyed making me nervous for once :)
 I ended up getting Shatter Me, Silence, and Eve.
Leave me your link! Happy Friday!

Daww, that is such a fun and cute story! My boyfriend doesn't enjoy bookstores, so I don't picture him ever doing anything like that for me. I wish he would though now that I've heard this story. Sounds like fun ^.^
