Top Ten Tuesday is run by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.
Hello, and welcome back for another top ten Tuesday! This weeks post is all about outrageous things you’ve done for the love of books. Now I’m going to start this off by saying please don’t judge me. I’ve definitely done some crazy things in the name of books, but I cant be alone in that right? So come on guys, and help me feel a bit better by letting me know what the most outrageous thing you’ve done in the name of books is. I cant wait to read the comments.
Pulled a Sicky
Not in my current job… in case anybody reads this. I had started reading a book one night, and before I knew it, it was 6 in the morning and I was due in work for 8. Cut to me ringing my manager saying that I had had a migraine attack, and couldn’t make it into work that day. I finished the book and then went to sleep!
Not made it to a second date
The night started off well, we were in a restaurant having a meal and chatting. We both liked rugby, and Ill admit that it looked promising. That was until he went on a massive rant about how much he hated Harry Potter. Not going to lie, this is pretty much a deal breaker for me and the previously, much anticipated second date never happened.
Now I know I’m not the only one to do this right? Been reading a book and got so invested that you loose all track of time, and the next thing you know you’re meant to be going out in an hour and you’ve not showered or got dressed. I do try not to do this too often, but I’ve definitely cancelled plans last minute to carry on reading a book.
Spent all my money
Buying books is pretty much the one thing I have no control over. I could have £7 left in my bank and if the book is £6.99 I am having it. The worst case of this I remember is when I was walking through my local Market, and saw one of my most loved authors books for 99p. I didn’t already have the book, so I was desperate to get my hands on it. I had no cash on me and only £1.31 left in my bank account… cut to my going into the bank and requesting a £1 withdrawal. I got some weird looks, but it was so worth it when I got home and read the book.
Well these are the craziest things I can remember doing, let me know if any of these ring a bell for your guys, or if I’m alone in my crazy love for books.
