Follow Friday.......

This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread.  We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back.  And now for this week's question....

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


A:  I'm going to appear rather boring with this answer...but so be it.  I read A LOT as a child, and since I became disabled at the age of four, it was my main form of activity (sure beat PE which I luckily got out of in later years).  My parents made sure I had whatever books I wanted but we had to drive 45 minutes to the closest city with a bookstore to get them.  Needless to say, the bag was overflowing with books when we came home.  Thankfully, my sister was a big reader too so the books were reread by many.


  1. Great story and awesome post :)

    Happy Friday and check out my follow Friday!!

  2. Awesome story!

    I had to beg just to BORROW a copy of Divergent!

  3. Man, reading rather than PE? That must've been one perk! When I broke my arm, I still had to sit on the sidelines and watch rather than participate! (I know that in no way compares, but it's fascinating how other places do things.)

    Stop by and see my TGIF / Follow Friday this week!

  4. Hopping through, good post. I would love to borrow books yet my friends live far away or we just don't similar tastes in books. :D Here's my FF

  5. Happy Friday!!!

    My #FF hop is here

  6. I got to sit out in PE too due to medical issues with my leg. So later on in middle school and high school--especially when I had recent surgeries, I would get to sit out and READ! The only time I actually liked PE!

    Here's my Friday Hops
