Stacking the Shelves # 1

February 23, 2013 Stacking the Shelves 31

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 physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks! Visit Tynga’s Reviews to learn more about this weekly meme.

This was a HUGE library haul week for me.  This was not intentional, as I reserve the books in a queue in advance, and I have no idea when they’ll get to me.  In some cases this week, the last book in a series came available, so I had to grab the earlier books, too.  This week is a good example of “When it rains, it pours.”  Oh, and out of this pile, the only one I’ve completed so far is Hallowed.  So, without further ado…

    The same thing tends to happen to me at the library! Then I end up with about 20 books and I can’t figure out what to read first. I’m about half way through The Girl of Fire and Thorns, so far it’s pretty good, although for me it’s a little slow at parts.

    Have fun reading, don’t get overwhelmed!

    I’ll check out your twitter- I got twitter yesterday as I’ve had my blog 10 weeks! I find that pretty cool… Not as cool as your book haul though! I love libraries too, it’s been a long time since I’ve got that many out but I have a few in my possession waiting to be read! 😀 I own enough books but can’t stay away from getting more in ebook format or attempting to win them. Have you ever got a review request? 😀 I don’t have a NetGalley but that doesn’t mean everything…

      Hi, Amy: I do get quite a few review requests through my Amazon account where I’ve been reviewing for about a year or so. My blog is so new, and I haven’t had much luck with NetGalley (yet), but I’ve gotten everything I requested through Edelweiss.

      At our library you won’t necessarily get late fees – you can change from the default checkout time. I renew online all the time because although I don’t get many library books I also read my own books & kindle books so end up not even getting through 4 library books in the small space of time that would be the default 😛

      We can renew older books that no one has placed a request on for up to 9 weeks. Unfortunately, for most of my books above, they all have wait lists, so I’ve got to get them read in three weeks.

    YAY for Caster Chronicles! I absolutely adore that series. And that’s a sweet library haul. I wish we have local libraries here. Happy reading!

      That is good to hear re: Caster Chronicles!

      Until others posted about their own lack of local libraries, I guess I didn’t how appreciative I should be of my library.

    But this is a good case of rain!!! It’s so much fun when tons of books come in at once! Yay for Cinder! So fricking good.

    Anyway, enjoy your goodies. Happy reading 🙂

      LOL – good point! I’m looking for Cinder, but since it’s MINE MINE MINE (as opposed to checked out from the library), it’s going to have to wait a while.

    Wow, look at all of those sweet titles! I LOVE Everneath and its novella – SO good! And I adore Jack 😉 I must read Everneath soon!
    Enjoy all of your new reads!!!
