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. hello, thanks for stopping by. have nice reading and nice week end!

  2. Only one? Well, at least it was a GOOD one.... [lol]

    5 for me this week (mostly non-fiction) with 2 more in the post. I'm *trying* to cut back but there are *SO* many books out there just begging for a good home environment...... [grin]


    Troy by Stephen Fry


    How Language Works by David Crystal
    Lancaster - The Forging of a Very British Legend by John Nichol
    The White Ship - Conquest, Anarchy and the Wrecking of Henry I's Dream by Charles Spencer
    Britain At Bay - The Epic Story of the Second World War: 1938-1941 by Alan Allport

    1. RIGHT?! What a complete WASTE of time.

      Lucky you, White Ship is already on my TBR. I am interested in the language book but will await your opinion first. Linguistic books are so hit or miss for me.

    2. I've read 'Crystal' before and he was interesting. I skimmed a bit of my recent purchase and it seems very readable.

      Oh, and I've just this minute posted another ancestry 'Looking Backwards' thing which should amuse/interest you! It's so weird sometimes what you find out about people you didn't even know existed just a few months ago... [grin]

    3. I have missed those posts so much and am hoping to get back to all of them now that things will be marginally less crazy. I may give Crystal a try, if you can vouch for him that it won't be a total snoozefest.

  3. Now that looks like one to check out!

    1. I wish I had liked this one but it ended up being no good. I am glad you liked it better!
