Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews.

This was a slow week for me, which is just as well. I have been trying to catch up on things like clearing off my computer desk. I have just been throwing receipts and papers and stuff on it for weeks and it was finally starting to topple over.

I have also been trying to empty out the storage facility that I have been renting for the past 7 years, from two moves ago. My goal is the end of the summer.

Remember how I said I had 7 book cases downstairs, 3 in my nieces room and a night stand crammed full of books not to mention the walk in attic. I have no count for those books. Well, last Saturday I was organizing the storage facility better since we are going to be selling some of the stuff. Let me tell you, I found probably about another 25 boxes of books. It's amazing how you collect them when working for a book store. Lots of advance reading copies and although the books are older, I need to try to give them away. The majority of books from the storage facility I will probably be looking to unload. Some of them I will keep, though.

I had a lot of fun going through my 45s, a lot of classic bands like Madness, Squeeze, The Smiths, Bruce Springsteen, The Police and a bunch of others, the majority were all in mint condition. Found a couple of old Monkees 45s that are beat to hell since I used to play them all the time.

I've also started going through some of the stuffed animal boxes. I have a ton of beanie babies, some actual Ty BB. However, I also have a lot of Disney BB.

If I find any real gems among the boxes, I'll share my finds.

In the meantime, this is what I either picked up or received in the mail. Mr. Postman has not been kind to me...again.

Free ebook anthology:
Purchased in the store:

A little tidbit of information.  I was going to read in the tub as I always do and accidentally knocked my half full large DD ice tea on the floor and then proceeded to know my book on the floor as well.  So now my nice copy of Die For Me is damp and tea stained.  So now I'm cranky.

Received from Amazon:

I decided to pick up the Amy Plum book after reading the review from one of the blogs I follow.  I downloaded the eReader sample and that was enough to get me to buy the book.  So far, it is really good.

Can't get to Endlessly yet as I am behind on the Paranormalcy series.

I've been picking up the Hellboy anthologies in the attempt to reduce the shelf space, or comic box space, needed to house my Hellboy collection.  I've been reading Hellboy for much longer than the movies have been out. 

In His Eyes?  Free.  Need I say more?

What's in your mailbox?


  1. Great picks this week! I almost bought Endlessley as well but decided I have to finish Supernaturally before I will allow myself the splurge :-)


    1. I know what you mean. I have that mentality, though, that I can get it cheaper when I pre-order because the price usually goes up after it comes out. Of course, sometimes it backfires.
      Happy reading!
