Stacking the Shelves (2)

**Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga of Tynga's Reviews that spotlights the books we receive each week**

We did our 'Support Small Business' shopping yesterday (since I was too sick to do it over T-day weekend). So we visited our local Trading Book store, a local charity thrift store and the flea market as well. Richi and I both found a dozen or so great books each.  We also bought a bookshelf from the thrift store ... because seriously, who doesn't *always* need another bookshelf, right?

Here are my 'new' shelf goodies (by the way, these books are going to be considered as part of my Christmas 2012).

 The stack on the left are the ones from Trading Book store:

I also received a giveaway book through Goodreads First Reads program to read for review:
On the Map: A Mind-Expanding Exploration of the Way the World Looks by Simon Garfield.

it's very textbook-y ... but looks quite interesting :)

As usual, I also managed to find lots of lovelies to feed my Nook with:

The 19 Dragons by SM Reine
Dead(ish) by Naomi Kramer
A Circle of Iron by Greg Benage (Eldernost: Book One)
Shadow of the Sun by Laura Kreitzer
The Soulkeepers (book one) by G.P. Ching
Falling by Amber Jaeger (Hemlock Bay #1)
Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl (Tales of Goldstone Wood #1) - this is supposed to be an amazing series!
Splendors and Glooms by Laura Amy Schlitz
Spooks and Magic by Jack Sorenson (Alana Weatherbee #2)
The Medium by C.J. Archer
Sorrows Child by Georgina Anne Taylor (The Taint #1)

~So those are my newest shelf editions. :)
Have you heard about or read any of these? what did you think?

Happy Reading!


  1. I love finding great book deals. I found so many good books at the Goodwill I had to restrain myself. I got the first 6 Gossip Girls, Pretties and Uglies, Blood Red Road, a lot of YA books. It was a surprise. I dont normally find them like that.
    Thank you for stopping by BB :)
    I love meeting new blogger friends!
    I love your blog design and colors. I love the color blue.

  2. I <3 <3 <3 our trading book store. I've been going to this place for 25 years. we rarely take books in to trade - but other people must do cuz there's always 'new' books on the shelves LOL. I almost always find 6-10+ books that are already ON my to-read list (plus other books that just look interesting, and I do *try* to pull up goodreads on my phone to see reviews). Richi has found loads of his series' books there too. And her prices are really awesome, I think those 7 in ^that^ haul was around $12.
    anyway, didn't mean to gush about my favorite book store :D

    It's really great to meet you too! I appreciate you coming by and looking around - it's still a work in progress. :)

  3. It's never too late to read Pride and Prejudice!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
