‘Extraordinary Means’: some of our favourite videos from Robyn Schneider’s book tag

Over the last month, booktubers have been getting involved in Robyn Schneider’s ‘Extraordinary Means’ book tag, testing how far they will go for their favourite reads. Some questions include watching 1000 hours of commercials and giving up the internet for a month for a book. After all, love is sacrifice.

Here are a few of our favourites.

Margo from EpicReads with her super rad pink hair proved to be a true Jane Austen fangirl, choosing give up the internet for a month for a signed, first edition of ‘Pride and Prejudice’.

Plus, she says she would never read another book again if it meant she got to live in the world of the Hunger Games.

“Hah. Just kidding.”

These three cuties were tagged by Robyn Schneider to complete the book tag, and there was a lot of debate on which answer is best – with the idea of selling books on for cash being a big consideration.

For example, for our first question (“I would give up the internet for a month for a signed, first edition of this book”), we had Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and the Bible, all three of them mentioning the money you could get for them. We’d happily make an offer, guys.

Liz was also tagged by Robyn herself, and chose to give up pizza for a year if it meant she got to sit next to Holly Black on a long plane journey, with special mention to ‘The Darkest Part of the Forest’. So, if you’re looking for an awesome, quirky fantasy which is totally Liz approved, try Holly Black.

What about you? What kind of lengths would you go to for your favourite books? Let us know if you’ve completed the ‘Extraordinary Means’ book tag, or if you know any booktube videos we’ve missed and really need to see.
