    I'd definitely choose Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. =) Thanks for another great giveaway, Brenda!

    As for your other question . . . I already make a fool of myself for books all the time! LOL! At least that's what my mother and sister say. Of course, I think my behaviour is perfectly normal! =P

    My sister just walked into the room and I asked her, "What is the craziest thing you have ever seen me do with a book?" She said: "There was that year you tried to coordinate your outfits so they would always match the book you were reading. That was INSANE." ROFL! I hope this answers your question, Brenda! =D

    1. ^^ the question is were you doing it consciously or unconsciously?

    2. +JMJ+

      At first, it was totally unconscious. =) Only when I put my book down on my lap to rest my eyes for a while would I notice that it matched my outfit!

      But after it happened several times, I was so pleased by the effect that I consciously tried to achieve it. LOL! ;-)

    3. Ha! That is too funny Enbrethiliel. :-)

      Either you are the only one who reads the actual post, everyone else is shy, or your the only one brave enough to admit that you are crazy about books.

      Don't worry that only makes us luv you more!

      Delete
    4. ^^ Enbrethiliel was only the first ^^ ( to read or to dare to speak i don't know^^;;) i was up later since i had to recuperate^^;; and Brenda is right we can only love more those who are crazy about books^^ ( and it's linked to this blog after all^^)

      i did try to have the same oufit as the sailor mercyry in sailor moon ( not the short skirt) the jeans with the t-shirt purple and the blue pull for example^^;; i like this characther because like me she loved to study and loved water^^;; i couldn't rresist but i only did that a few time when i felt i needed some boost to keep going^^

      Delete
    5. Enbrethiliel, that's AWESOME! I could totally see me an my book club doing this. I like to do theme reading marathons, where everything I read is related somehow. I guess that's the closest that I've ever come to actually doing something for real, other than the fact that the hubby now knows he only has to offer a trip to the bookstore to get me to do what he wants. Sigh, he SO has my number!

      My daughter is into Manga and I know many Manga readers are huge into dressing like their fave characters. I could totally see her doing that on a regular basis. Miki, one of her faves is Sailor Moon! I just got books 9 and 10 for her and she told me I was the best mom EVER! LOL

    did a make a fool of myself for a good book...hum definitively and several time^^ HOw that's a good question i will pick the last one i guess i did went to a fantasy convention i had no interest in it^^;; to promote a author ( suzanne johnson) and her books in hope she would be translated in french... so i spend part of my birthday money for the train and the entry) then i went to the author section because i know a big edition house was going to be there....first there was a lot more author than i expected and i had to be honest by saying" i really don't know you what you book is about" i did look stupid i'm sure but worse... i had to wait the editor responsible so i spend the whole day near the stand in hope to see him ( he was there but enjoying the festival and letting the authors alone for once) since a lot of people were disguised and not me i was standing out and staying there will the file i had done waiting ...i looked like a fool and the authors diodn't understand why i was there not buying anything and not moving( but i suceeded in giving the file, i nearly saw nothing of the festival but mission accomplished)next time i have to do something like that i will try to make a costume of my favourite character^^:

  64. I am the most indecisive when it comes to books I never know what I am going to read next until I just up an pick it.

    According to my family I constantly make a fool of myself for books already because I eat, sleep and breath books literally so bring on the challenge and I would probably do it! I am always waking my husband up in the middle of the night talking in my sleep about books and I would much rather read a book then watch a movie and I try to make foods I read about...well really only the chocolate from Jill Shalvis Lucky Harbor series. But can you blame me? Seriously books come up constantly in my conversations and I treat them like they are real and not fiction...I can't be the only one...

  83. Either Bared to You by Day or Rush by Banks.
    April Fools Day! April fools always seems to come and go without any practical jokes played. This year, however, my parents decided to play a prank. My 62 year-old parents! Well, they purchased a very realistic-looking fake tarantula and placed it on the toilet seat. When lifted the lid, I was in for a surprise. Instead of freaking out, like my parents hoped I would, I just cursed and then asked who's idea it was. I've never played a practical joke on April Fools. I need to get more creative and think of someone who would really appreciate it. Up until this year, I would've never thought my parents would be the practical joke-playing type! By the way, did anyone see Len Goodman from DWTS play a practical joke on gymnast, Aly Raisman and her partner, Mark. I was stunned and then laughed my ass off.
    Thanks for the giveaway and I hope you had an uneventful April Fools Day!

    2. Phew, I finally found time to answer the question.

      On how I'd make a fool of myself for a book..well, there was this one time when I chased after a postman.

      When they get bigger packages they can't fit into my mailbox they will usually honk and wait for someone to come out and if no one does they'll leave a card telling us to get it from the PO. So it happens one day I just came out of the shower and saw the card in the mailbox. I could still hear the postman's bike somewhere (the sound is very distinct) so he would probably pass by my house on his way out. I settled down to wait and read a book. About 15 minutes later I was so absorbed that when he passed by I forgot to flag him down. I ran after him in my post-shower attire (the kind of clothes a person SHOULD NOT be seen outside in -.-) and chased him until he was almost out of the neighborhood before I caught up. I did try to shouting at him to stop but he probably didn't hear it because I was breathless from running lol.

      It must have been a sight for the neighbors to see me running like that. At that time I was so anxious to get the book I didn’t even consider just going to the PO and picking it up later. >.>

      Other *foolish* things I do:
      - I give books a full checkup before I buy them. The spine, the front, back, corners..I hold it high up and examine each part closely to make sure it's perfectly perfect. Sometimes I'd even dig through the entire pile and in the end choose the first one I took out lol
      - Talk myself into buying/not buying a book in the store. The kids who saw me probably thought I was crazy lady.
      - When I got Clockwork Princess I was SO HAPPY and EXCITED I fawned and made cooing noises at my pretty book, petted it, rotated it in the light to see how the dust jacket shimmers and stared at it with a dopey expression (according to my friends) for an entire afternoon.
      - Was late for class a few times on days I expected packages because I was waiting for it. Thinking back it was terrible but in my defense, I didn’t miss anything crucial. Then in the class itself I kept peeking into my bag to stare lovingly at the book.

  103. Since I have so many books I would love to get, I'll go with one I've already read, but would like in hardcover. The 1st or 4th book in Darynda Jones Graves series. Love Charlie and Reyes!

    As for what I would do for a book I really wanted, hmmm. Guess I would be open to suggestions. I mean the usual items pop into my head, dress in some weird costume and stand on a corner with a sign to promote the book, scream to the world that I love books in the middle of a mall, spam my friends with a message stating that I'm running off to marry a fictional character - would have been a great one to have posted and sent out on April 1. LOL I mean the husband gets me to go do all of his favorite things by promising to take me to a bookstore afterwards, so I really don't think there is anything I'm not willing to give a try or at least a bit of consideration to doing for my love of books.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. OH, just thought of another one... Go to a mall or some other very public place and go up to people asking if they've seen your boyfriend. Select beforehand your favorite hero and then give them his description including if he has any "special" abilities etc. I'm thinking Reyes from the Graves series could be good. Dark, tall, carries a Scythe and is the son of the devil LOL Have the book somewhere near and very loudly proclaim, "Oh, there he is" and grab the book giving it a big kiss.
