The Extraordinary Means Book Tag

Extraordinary Means Tag

I was tagged by Rattle the Stars, and after some sleuthing, I found that the tag originated at Epic Reads.


  1. I WOULD GIVE UP THE INTERNET FOR A MONTH FOR A SIGNED FIRST EDITION OF THIS BOOK…

My favorite book is The Lord of the Rings, and I would definitely give up the Internet for a month in exchange for a signed copy!  (However, I do think questions like this are generally assuming giving up the Internet as entertainment; I recognize that I today’s world it would actually be extremely difficult to avoid the Internet for a month when it comes to paying bills, doing things for my job, etc.)

  1. I WOULD GIVE UP PIZZA FOR A YEAR IF IT MEANT I COULD SIT NEXT TO THIS AUTHOR ON A LONG PLANE RIDE…

As a disclaimer, I don’t particularly like pizza, and I think I could give it up for a year no problem. However, I’m also not the most accomplished person when it comes to small talk, and I don’t even like talking to people I don’t know on planes, so I’m not sure I even want this happen!  However, if I must pick (and I will pick a living author to avoid issues of time travel and to avoid just saying Tolkien to everything), I’d love to talk with Brandon Sanderson.

Shadows of Self

  1. I WOULD SIT THROUGH A THOUSAND HOURS OF COMMERCIALS IF IT WOULD ENSURE THAT HOLLYWOOD MADE THIS BOOK INTO A MOVIE…

I’ve been hoping for a Tamora Pierce movie for basically my entire life, but I’m getting the impression that’s not going to happen. I would also love to see a Six of Crows movie.  Do I care enough about either of these things to watch 1000 hours of commercials, though? No. I could think of much better things to do with my time!

Tempests and Slaughter

  1. I WOULD NEVER READ A NEW BOOK AGAIN IF IT MEANT I COULD LIVE INSIDE THIS BOOK…

Tough call. To give up reading new books ever again, I think I’d have to get a really good deal in exchange.  Maybe The Lord of the Rings?  I say that partially because Middle Earth sounds beautiful and partially because, although they do have books and libraries, a lot of the history and tales seem to be oral, so I think I wouldn’t be missing much if I had to give up some types of reading.  But do I get to be an Elf? Because I also think I’d like some kind of magic in exchange for never reading a new book again.

  1. I WOULD LET MY GOOGLE SEARCH HISTORY BE MADE PUBLIC IF IT MEANT I COULD BE BEST FRIENDS WITH THIS AUTHOR…

I’m not even sure this is the horrifying circumstance this question assumes, though I guess people would know more about my medical history than I’d ideally like.  I think I’d like to be friends with L. M. Montgomery, as her books make her seem as if she has a really beautiful outlook on life.

Anne of Green Gables

  1. I WOULD DONATE EVERYTHING I OWN TO GOODWILL IF IT MEANT I COULD DATE THIS BOOK CHARACTER IN REAL LIFE…

I don’t actually want to date a book character! Am I allowed to say that? I guess if I had to, Jingle from Pat of Silver Bush sounds like a nice guy.

    #3 and #6. I’d skip those questions. I do NOT need to sit through commercials so that Hollywood can wreck my favourite book. And I don’t need to date a book character. (You choice of Jingle surprised me. Who picks Jingle?)

    I would like to live in Middle Earth (or Narnia) and I’d be happy to be best friends with L.M. Montgomery!

    Gosh I’d definitely pick Tolkien for the first question too (though I’d go for the Hobbit 😉 ) hehe yeah I don’t think I’d sit through hours of commercials for anything- unless I’m allowed to use that as reading time (I usually take out my book when adverts come on 😉 ) L M Montgomery would have been a wonderful person to befriend!
