Outrageous/Crazy/Uncharacteristic Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books

  1. I drove four+ hours to attend a festival
  2. I left my husband at home and got a hotel room on my own so I could attend a festival
  3. I missed a family gathering
  4. I left my husband with friends and no car
  5. I carried two very large canvas bags weighing about 90lbs
  6. I’ve also carried bags that weighed 85lbs and 70lbs
  7. I’ve stopped following/lost friendships because I didn’t like how someone handled themselves when it came to new books (meaning they were rude that they got an ARC when nobody else really did). I also lost friendships (loose term) because I felt I was being used for my arcs.
  8. I’ve fibbed about how much I really spent on books
  9. I started a hidden list on Amazon for the books I’m quietly keeping an eye on
  10. I’ve ignored adult chores so I could read/listen/finish a book I was highly addicted to.

What have you done for the love of books?
