Thank God These Are Hypothetical

Shelumiel tagged me in the "Extraordinary Means" blog meme, and it just looked like too much fun to pass up. Thanks!

1. I would give up the internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book.

No internet for a month is a big deal, so obviously the book I get in return would have to be a huge deal. And what better signed first edition to get than a Harry Potter book? ;) My first choice would be The Deathly Hallows, since that's my favorite, but really I would give up the internet for a month or multiple months for any of them.

2. I would give up pizza for a year if it meant I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride.

Hmm, probably John Green. He definitely has enough energy and stuff to talk about to make the time pass quickly, and it'd be great to pick his brain for marketing tips. Plus, it's John freaking Green. How cool would that be?

3. I would sit through a thousand hours of commercials if it would ensure Hollywood made this book into a movie.

One book?! Nope, no way, I couldn't choose between the three. They'd all make fantastic movies. Plenty of action, awesome characters, magic and adventure, and basically everything you need for a YA book adaptation. I would go to the midnight premiere of any of these.

4. I would never read a new book again if it meant I could live inside this book.

No new books ever again?! How could I even go about my day with an empty TBR pile and hundreds of books just taunting me? If I had to make that sacrifice, I would live inside the Harry Potter books. Hogwarts would be a pretty good trade-off.

5. I would let my Google search history be made public if it meant I could be best friends with this author.

Hehehe, well my Google search history is pretty weird and fishy . . . everything from what kind of gunshots are fatal to how to hack into somebody's passwords to picking locks to pictures of sloths wearing pajamas (I'm serious). But authors have strange search histories. I'd definitely want to be best friends with Rainbow Rowell. She's funny and a great writer and just seems like a really cool person. We'd have tons of fun marathon watching "Sherlock" and eating delicious food.

6. I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if it meant I could date this book character in real life.

Maybe Augustus Waters? A sense of humor, intelligence, and a love for reading are all big pluses for me. I think we'd get along great and find tons to talk about.

Tag, you're it! What would you be willing to give up for these things? Let me know in the comments, or write a post of your own! :) Have fun!

Something just occurred to me - how would you do your homework at Hogwarts if you couldn't read a new book? Still, if that was possible to get round, I'd trade. But only if I could get into Ravenclaw! ;-)

Great answers, Kate!

Oh, I hate questions like these! Though I love reading your answers. Great reasoning for all your choices. Rainbow also likes 80s movies, so I agree that she'd be lots of fun. :) Was Augustus a big reader? I thought he only liked books based on video games?

Cait @ Paper Fury said...

I was going to do this BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT I'D GIVE UP THE INTERNET FOR A MONTH, YOU KNOW? I'm tragic, I really am. Maybe i'd give up the internet for a month if I had ALL of Sarah J Maas' books in my hands right now, instead of having to wait 3 more years for all of them. *shrugs* MAYBE. heeh. Ahh, writers and their search histories. ;-) Omg, John Green might sneak you some pizza!!

Cheers to John Green and Rainbow Rowell! (Cait is so right; John would have secret pizza stash for you!) And it wasn't really hard to guess that Harry Freaking Potter would appear because DUH. Thank you for doing the tag, Kate!

PS. Seriously. Sloths in pajamas? O.O

@Lara Liz Ooh, that's a good point. xD I'm sure I could figure something out. Maybe some of the other students could help me. And Ravenclaw, yes! *high-fives* I would totally be in Ravenclaw.

@Robynhood Thank you! :) I loved your post, too!

@Boquinha I know, they were so hard to answer! Rainbow just seems awesome in general. :) We'd all get along great with her. And Augustus didn't read much besides that at first, but he read more once he got to talking with Hazel.

@Cait Ha ha, that'd be a pretty good trade off. Although no internet for a month... *shudders* It's an awful thought. Our search histories are interesting to say the least. LOL, John would. Is that cheating? ;)

@bookishandawesome Aren't they awesome?! And you know me so well...however could you guess that that would be on here? PS: Yes, seriously. They're so cute. You should look it up. And then it'll be in your search history, too. ;)
