Stacking the Shelves 1


Surprise, surprise, I have found another weekly feature that I simply must participate in because this one is all about acquiring books and that is something I do exceptionally well.

Here is a little info before we plunge ahead into the lovelies that I found this week, taken from Tynga's Reviews, the website where this feature began:

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks! To find out more, visit the official launch page.

It has been a relaxing and lazy winter break and of course it has gone by way too fast. I am not looking forward to January 8th, that's for sure. My daughter and I have been home in Minnesota since Christmas, and of course everyone has been sick except me (knock on wood). Today was the first day my little lady was feeling well enough to venture outside and I thought the public library would be the perfect place to test out how much better she was actually feeling. I was instantly drawn to the shelves of books for sale - $1 for hardcovers! I walked out with seven of them and am excited to get reading. You know, after I finish the fifty million other books on my TBR.

33544891     82405

11376114

And lastly...because crazy is totally worth $1 each.

844720     190675

This feature works just like Top Ten Tuesday and First Line Friday. Follow the link to Tynga's Reviews to see this week's post and if you want to participate, use the Linky Widget and check out the other bloggers who are participating.

  1. 'Quiet' keeps popping up on my radar but I'm highly sceptical about the whole Introvert/Extrovert thing....

    1. Same here! I am by no means an introvert at all, but I am still drawn to reading it.

  2. Quiet really intrigues me!

    1. Same here, mostly because I am so not an introvert and maybe I can learn how to relate to them better - I tend to talk...a lot.

  3. I've been wanting to read Quiet for a while, and I never seem to get to it. Would love to read it though. And The Exodus is another one that caught my eye a while back. I definitely want to get to that one this year!

    1. There were some really great finds for it being such a small library - and you cant beat $1 for hardcovers! I was especially interested in The Exodus. Not too shabby of a haul for a whopping $7 total!

  4. I hope your family feels better soon. And this seems like a great haul. I hope you enjoy all of these.

    1. Thank you so much! Everyone is finally on the mend and I am still symptom-free (still knocking on wood). I am super excited to get reading these ASAP.

  5. Australian flu and a couple of nasty viral infections are stopping me from going out at the moment! I have no plans to catch any of them thank you! Staying in is a good excuse to read...enjoy your books!

    1. Totally understandable - my mom ended up with pneumonia! But everyone else is getting better and she is too with meds. I am looking forward to these reads!

  6. I hope everyone starts feeling better! Our house has been under the weather for the past couple of weeks. Quiet looks interesting! and you honestly can't beat $1 hardcovers! I hope you enjoy your books.

    1. Hey Tina, thanks for stopping by. I could not believe these were all $1 either! I had to double check at the front desk, because it seemed too good to be true. Hopefully your household is on the med as well, slowly but surely we are getting there.

  7. Glad the little one is feeling better and looks like you got some good books. I've always been interested in Quiet but have yet to pick it up. Hope you enjoy it!

    1. Hi Barb, thanks for coming by. I have been interested in that one for a while too, and it seemed almost too good to be true when it was $1. I think it is because I am such an extrovert that I have to try to understand introverts better. I'm excited to get it started!
