You know how sometimes you’re lollygagging on the Internet, and all of a sudden come across a review, or an ad, or a fangirl tweet, or some peer pressure from a fellow book lover and you eyes light up and you think, “I NEED THAT BOOK NOW.” But of course, it’s midnight and the book stores are closed, and you have to work the next day so you can’t go shopping early, plus Amazon takes forever… and you’re not into the idea of buying it on your ereader because the cover is sparkly and would look awesome on your bookshelf, and why can’t you just HAVE IT NOW. Am I right? I can’t tell you how many times that this has happened to me, and in this day and age… with all the technology and cool things like instant mashed potatoes… well, you know what I mean. When I saw this hilarious video, I could not help myself. I started dreaming.
So tell me. What books out there have had you so terribly excited that there was no earthly way it could get to you fast enough? Have you ever gone to extraordinary measures to get your hands on a book?
I think the worst I’ve done is drag my mom to the midnight release of Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. Haha! The line was a couple hours long, and it was a school night! :P Oh, I did pay $30 for an out of print mass market paperback that I just HAD to have! Too bad I didn’t even end up liking the book, and only finished it because I spent so much on it!
