Today’s Topic is:
Uncharacteristic Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books
I have done a few crazy-ish things in the name of books haha! Nothing too out there but definitely things I wouldn’t do for my other hobbies.
1. Taken a day off work to guarantee getting a book box
Yep, this was a fairly recent occurrence… I totally took a day off work so I could make sure I got my hands on the Finale Special Edition box that Fairyloot is putting out. It’s their first special edition and I’m well-excited like!
2. Queued at Midnight to get Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Yeah, I did that… anything to avoid spoilers. Though there was some knob at the front of the queue who decided to read out the last page once they got ahold of the book to everyone else waiting in line. People suck sometimes. 😡
3. Going without sleep to finish a book
This is actually a very common occurrence for me! I will forego sleep any day to be able to read a good book… have done this time and time again (and I don’t care!)
4. Buying multiple editions of the same books
I am getting quite a collection of Alice in Wonderland editions, Lord of the Rings/Hobbit editions, Narnia editions… well, you get the picture! I’m a collector at heart I guess. 😉
5. Actually having a bona-fide library in my house
That is what my spare room houses – my books! I’m well running out of space for them though and they have migrated out to nearly every other room too…
6. buying way too many Bookstagram props
I have a serious problem – just about everything I buy for the house I consider whether or not it could double-up as a Bookstagram prop. I’ve also bought things specifically for taking photos of that has no other practical use.
7. Having way too many Funko Pops
Somewhat related to my previous entry, and only kinda related to books, but I have quite the collection of Funko Pops. They have taken over my previous obsession for Living Dead Dolls. They are just way too cool on my bookshelves…
8. Cancelled plans to stay in and read
Yeah, I’m not even sorry about this one! I am an introvert at heart anyway so going out sometimes gives me hives at the best of times. I have been known to cancel strictly to read a new release I have been waiting for!
9. unhauled my favourite childhood books… then re-bought them all!
I deeply regret giving away my childhood books, so much so that I have ended up re-buying them all. The very same editions even. Yeah. 😙
10. Got over crippling shyness to start this blog
This is a biggie for me. I never, ever thought I would have the guts to start a blog. I’m a big scaredy-cat who hates putting myself out there. I have no idea sometimes how I can do this (and enjoy it even). But I definitely do!
