Let Them Eat Cake or Happy Un-Stacking the Shelves Day

Terri, because you asked for it, I am going to comply...for once. I have spent some time trying to compile my acquisitions since I got back from vacation and I think this just about does it...except for the books I got at The NYC Comic Con which will be a different post.

I am not going to upload the covers as there are too many, but I will say most of the Kindle books were under $3.00. I think American Gods was the most expensive and that was $3.99 on special. I'm not sure if it still is.  I ordered all the eBooks in one shot when I got back from Germany.  I think I was so starved for English text and needed the instant gratification of having the book in my hand, even if electronically.  And they were all a bargain so I could hardly afford not to.  Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

So without further delay, here are the three weeks worth of books I added to my collection from the beginning of October through to Hurricane Sandy.

  1. Quite a set! So cool that you got American Gods. I really want to read it.

  2. I actually have American Gods in four formats. I have the original hard cover that came out which I managed to snag a signed copy of at B&N. Never pay full price for a hard cover, but I would for that and did. I picked up the paperback for a vacation read one year. I have the 10th anniversary hard cover edition that came out in 2011 and now I have the eBook version which was practically a steal.
    I love him and have ever since I started reading Sandman back in 1992. You really should pick it up.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. OH, WOW. That is a lot of books! hope you have fun with them all!!! especially the manga. I love skip beat!

  4. Awesome haul! Much better than pseudo birthday cake! Lots of books from Jennifer L. Armentrout (really need to read her). You'll have to let me know how The Casual Vacancy is, as I've read mixed reviews. And you got The Curiosities! Jealous! Enjoy all of your awesome new books!
