Stacking the Shelves #49

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature co-hosted by Tynga's Reviews and Reading Reality. It is a chance to showcase all the goodies you've collected throughout the week, whether they're bought on-line or in-store, an ARC or a final copy, borrowed from a friend or the library, physical or digital, etc. Never has my addiction been more obvious than when I am now keeping track of every single book I acquire.

What did you add to your stash this week?

Happy Reading!


  1. I like the half price books you got. They're definitely titles I'd enjoy too!

    1. Thank you! It is so easy to spend a lot of time and money at that store!

  2. Cutting back, eh? Good for you [grin]. I'm interested in what you think of the Nessie book....

    Not SO many expected next week.... [lol]

    1. Oh don't you worry - when the Scotty exhibit opens at the Durham like I talked about previously, I will have a HUUUUUUGE book haul (probably) because the gift shop always gets a great variety to go with the exhibit.

      I am trying to not look at your non-fiction list but I can't help myself. Nice haul!

    2. I picked up most of the non-fiction from my fave end-of-run book shop in 'town'. I try not to go there too often - both to let new stock accumulate and to not need to buy a bigger house....

    3. I know how that feels!!! I try to stay away from Half Price books because it is so easy to spend a lot of money, when you justify it by lower prices. I still end up spending way too much - and space for all the books is an issue for us also, lol

  3. 4 books in this week. All library copies, one recommended by a friend, two for reading groups and a translated novel about Syria!

    1. Isn't it nice when it is a good haul, but costs no money? Thank God for libraries, otherwise Eleanor and I would be living in a cardboard box. Or, a tiny house made of books.

  4. Nessie!!! I love the Loch Ness monster.

    1. Same! I think I've told you about the cruise we went on on Loch Ness, right?? So cool.

  5. I have a book splurge to own up to this week but I'm dreading putting it up!


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
