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

A: That`s a hard question, but I guess it was when I was at Chapters looking for Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I knew beforehand that they had the book in the store, but they didnt put them on the shelves yet. I asked one of the workers if they were able to help me. They searched their system and told me that it was just delivered yesterday (this was a Tuesday). So they searched the shelves, nothing, then she told me they would put it on hold for me. But being me, I knew one of the workers, who usually knows me to maybe get the book from the back:) It took a little while, but I did get the book. This has happened a lot to me, but eventually I do get that particular book that I want.   

Whats the craziest you have done!

  4. I do that too! Go the day the book is out and they don't already have it out on the shelves! So frustrating! You also reminded me one time I went to the book store a week before the book came out. I wanted If I Die by Rachel Vincent so bad that I missed up the date. Ending up getting it on kindle the second it came out.
