Extraordinary Means: A Tag

Hello! Before I start today's post in ernest, I would first like to say that I am writing it on my phone and I don't know how it's going to turn out format-wise on the blog. I'll fix any niggles once I get back to the hotel and regain computer access.

I have completely lost track of where this 'Extraordinary Means' tag comes from (someone said it was originally a video tag?) and I do way too many Blog Tags anyway, but I have limited time here, and I like memes.

So there.

Also, these means really are extraordinary. HOW CAN ONE EVEN GIVE UP THE INTERNET? They're all hypothetical, of course, but in truth, I doubt I'd even pull the easiest one off. They're darn near impossible for us bookworms. But the rewards are great, so I would try my best.

I would give up the internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book
Are we talking all-holds-barred here? Like, regardless to practicality or it even being possible? Because giving up the internet would be pretty much impossible for me, especially since I use it for school, so I need to get something that's worth it.

Black Beauty, a book signed by an author that I not only love, but is long dead, would make me the envy of bookworms everywhere. Because it would be impossible for them to get their own. MWA HA HA!

Just so you know, I'm not in this for the money. I love this book and it is mine, so you cannot have it. NEVER!

I would give up pizza for a year if I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride
J.K. Rowling. Because a plane ride is practically the only situation where I could ask her all the questions about Harry Potter without her running away from me / backing away slowly. She would be TRAPPED and have to put up with me.

I really am evil today, aren't I?

I would sit through a thousand hours of ADVERTS (I am British, they are not commercials) if it would ensure Hollywood made this book into a movie
I can only choose one? What is this? I did a whole post that involved five!

I must say that I am absolutely outraged, but if I had to plump for one, it would be Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. Firstly because I adore it, and was already a play, so would work visually. But also because the message is incredibly important, and must reach as big an audience as possible.

I would never read a new book again if I could live inside this book
No. No no NO! I can deal with some of these because they're for a limited time, but there is no way I would do this.

No change in environment makes up for a lack of reading.

I would let my internet search history be made public if I could become best friends with this author
Hmm...my internet history is certainly pretty embarrassing. And I have a pretty awesome bestie (hi, Katie!). But I would get along very well with Alison Cherry, judging by her twitter feed.

I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if I could date this fictional character in real life
Ooohh,  tricky. I would hate to steal any boy away from his girl, because that would make me an awful person and wreck the entire book. Mind you, I think Fabian from The 13 Treasures series is pretty adorable...

Would you guys even consider these Extraordinary Means? I'm not so sure...

  1. This is such a great tag, and your answers are amazing. I think I'd give up pizza for a year if I could sit next to JK Rowling on a long plane ride too - haha. Thanks for sharing this and, as always, wonderful post! ♥

    1. It would be SO great to sit next to her, right? Having said that, I'm pretty sure she takes private jets everywhere, so we'd have to stow away. Which could be called creepy. Or illegal.

      Thank you for saying I post wonderfully. It's a great tag, which is honestly half the battle.


Thank you for commenting! ;-D
