From a book you’ve read.
What else did you think I meant?? 😛
Last week LesleyW hinted at something which she had been inspired to do… and then quickly went on talk about a perfume she just had to try after reading Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden series.
Who was she kidding.
Then, like an awesome detective, I followed the trail from Lesley’s back to D. L.’s post at DIK where she admitted to learning ASL “because I’m in love with a mute ass-kicking fictional vampire from a romance novel”.
Sure John Matthew rocks and all, but sometimes you just gotta admit when something ain’t likely to ever happen.
Romance readers are so weird.
Present company excepted of course.
Anyhoo, both posts made me think about whether a book had ever influenced me in this way.
That’s when I began to wonder if anything else has, and it hit me…
You see, I’m a huge, huge fan of the ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
I’ve been moved in some many ways by this series; however, it was one episode in particular which made me take action and, on 30 December 2010, I registered to become a bone marrow donor.
Although I’ve been on the books as an organ donor since I first got my driver’s license in my late teens, becoming a bone marrow donor as well never even occurred to me until watching that episode.
Sure the odds are pretty slim that I will ever get called up, but if I can help in anyway to save someone’s life?? So worth it.
What about you? Have you ever done something weird or wonderful because of a book, etc? Do tell.
