Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday (on a Wednesday) hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! I am super excited about this week’s topic–Outrageous/Crazy/Uncharacteristic Things I’ve Done for the Love of Books. This was such a fun list to come up with. Oh the things we do for the books we love, right? 😉 Enjoy!
Stayed up all night finishing a book // It’s fun to say I did this. Although, I don’t remember this book very well now. And, I’m not sure I’d this now especially with toddler wake up times. Haha!
Attended a Book Launch Party before they were cool & multiple midnight release parties. // Harry Potter book 4. I was probably 8 and my Sunday School teacher took me. It was awesome. The midnight release party was for Harry Potter as well. So worth it!
Dressed up as at least 3 Harry Potter characters or objects // Harry himself before it was a thing (my mom didn’t really know who he was), the Firebolt, a horcrux.
My Travel Bucket List is full of bookish places and bookstores/libraries // Prince Edward Island, Canada; The Kilns, Oxford, England; Jane Austen’s house in Chawton; Laura Ingalls Wilder house and museum; Shakespeare and Co. The list goes on 🙂
Own several copies of the same book // I especially love to buy pretty editions of the classics. And of Harry Potter–own 4 copies of Sorcerer’s Stone. And I definitely bought a collector’s edition of The Book Thief without ever doubting that I needed it. Haha.
Went to the Charles Dickens museum by myself in London // It was nerdy and wonderful and I took a selfie with his writing desk.
I count down until the library book sale twice a year // I seriously do. It’s at the end of this month. I am super excited!
My husband takes me to new bookstores on dates // This is so much fun for me! I love these dates. The neatest bookstore we’ve visited so far is the 30 rooms of books in German Village.
Carried on 20+ books onto an international flight // I was coming home from my Study Abroad in London where I bought lots of fantastic bookish souvenirs and the BYU Centre was downsizing their library. It was awesome and my arms hurt for a week!
My dream house has a room just for my books // I cannot wait!
What are some of the craziest things you’ve done for the love of books?
