Feature & Follow Friday #2
Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajamlee and Alison Can Read where you meet and follow different bloggers.
I'd like to feature a fellow book blogger, NOVEL D'TALES. I really enjoy her Authors Not-So-Anonymous interviews and I like reading her reviews. Take a second and look at her blog when you have a chance! :)
And, there's a question:
Q: What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get your hands on any particular book?
A: Hmm. The craziest thing is probably attend the midnight release of each of the Harry Potter books starting with, I think, book number four. I'd have Harry Potter parties at my house and my friends would read the books into the night and sleep over.
I don't think it's crazier, but it was probably more desperate. My favorite baking blogger, Bakerella, came to Orlando and I HAD to have a signed copy of her cake pops book. Her book signing was from 12 - 2 p.m.
One problem. I'm late. As in, ohmygoodnessit's2o'clock late. So, I run upstairs to the table and I ask here how she can sign the book. She tells me that there's a table next to the door (which I completely missed) and that I would need to buy it first before having her sign it.
Keep in mind, there's no one else there. I'm the LAST person there. I completely missed her speaking to everyone and missed all the cute little gifts everyone gave her. I'm flying down the escalator, determined to buy two copies of this book (one for me and one for my sister as a holiday gift) praying that Bakerella doesn't hate this crazy late girl running to buy her book.
Of course the line is slow. Finally, I run upstairs and she signs them with a smile! Hooray! And my boyfriend was there as well to witness this entire scene, and I'm FAMOUS!
Ha, not really. Bakerella posted pictures from her book signings on her blog, so I guess being on a Flickr slideshow on her blog is cool, right? ... Right?
Fine, just me. But if you haven't seen her blog, you need to do it RIGHT NOW. But don't do it if you're hungry and have a sweet tooth. Like me, every day of my life. My favorite is the s'mores cupcakes. Yes, I went there.
I don't know if that counts as the craziest (I can imagine much worse on a Black Friday) story, but for me that's probably the most desperate I've been to have a book.
Bakerella & me! :)
