Stacking the Shelves #264

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by 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

Happy Reading!


  1. You added a decent amount to the stack this week :) I hope you enjoy them all when you get to them. Have a great weekend!

  2. So.... As predicted a BUMPER crop for me again this week, as I visited my fave Indie bookshop last week for my early, early Christmas book shopping trip. The bad news (for you I'm afraid) is that I think there's a few you're going to like. The *good* news is that I probably won't be buying all that many in the run-up to Christmas itself.

    The Last Man Standing by Davide Longo
    Sherlock's Sisters - Stories from the Golden Age of the Female Detective edited by Nick Rennison


    Blues People - Negro Music in White America by LeRoi Jones
    Fathoms - The World in the Whale by Rebecca Giggs
    A Very Stable Genius - Donald J Trump's Testing of America by Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig
    Talking at the Gates - A Life of James Baldwin by James Campbell
    Dark and Magical Places - The Neuroscience of How We Navigate by Christopher Kemp
    Gun Barons - The Weapons that Transformed America and the Men Who Invented Them by John Bainbridge, Jr
    Russia's Road to War with Ukraine - Invasion Amidst the Ashes of Empire by Samir Puri
    America on Fire - The Untold History of Police Violence and Black Rebellion Since the 1960's by Elizabeth Hinton

    Oh, and in other good news (for me!) 5 of the above were already on my Amazon Wish List so my trip saved me LOADS of dosh!

    1. I definitely want to read America on Fire. Gun Barons is on my Kindle, I got it from NetGalley AGES ago. I would give Stable Genius a try but I am pretty sure it will make me so angry all over again.


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