Booking Through Thursday asks:
What’s the furthest you’ve ever gone to get something to read? (Think extremes as well as miles—wrangling a ride from a stranger to a distant bookstore just to get the newest book from a favorite author?) If your absolute favorite author (living or dead) was coming out with a brand new book tomorrow, how far would you go, what would you do to get a copy?
I don't think I'd go very far at all. I don't have to be the first person to read something, so I'm usually content to wait until I can easily access a book. Putting books on my wish list and reserving them at the library... that's about the extent of it.
That said, I have bought books from overseas sites (because the books weren't available in North America at that time). But that's about as "extreme" as I've gotten. I didn't actually go to England or Australia to pick the books up; now that would have been extreme!
