Stacking the Shelves - March 9, 2014

I blame it on the snow...and the cold. I have been lethargic and bundled up under my fleece blankets playing Mini Death Star because it is a mindless activity requiring no brain power at all. Now that the snow is starting to melt, I feel like I am coming alive again. I may be part bear. I'm not sure about that, but I always feel like hibernating in January and February.

Of course, none of that has stopped me from my acquisitions. I have been reading more of my Kindle samples and have been buying some of the books as a result. I have been looking at the used and bargain books more as well as Kindle. There are some books, though, that I have to have as soon as they come out. So this past months aquisitions are a mixed bag.

So, without further ado, here is my haul for the month...

  1. Great selection, perfect for cuddling up with in front of a roaring fire. That said Spring thankfully seems to have sprung here though now that I've said that its likely to snow tomorrow.

    1. No more snow!!! I'm going to be posting some of my winter pictures. Here on the MidAtlantic coast, the winters are usually fairly mild. My lawn has been covered up for two months and only now is the grass starting to poke through.

      The problem I've had is that it's been so mind-numbling cold in this drafty old house that I have had difficulty reading as well. And sadly, no fireplace to warm me.

      Spring seems to be trying to make an appearance here as well. Let's hope it sticks around.

  2. Wow! What a great haul! I love the cover of Cruel Beauty. I think I might get it.

    1. Yes, I was also sold on the cover of Cruel Beauty alone. It was a done deal when I found it to be a take on Beauty and the Beast. And while I try to never judge a book by it's cover, I find sometimes a cover is just too amazing to pass up.

  3. You bought Grim! Let me know what you think of it, as I loved the stories!

    1. Soooo, you're saying I should read it next? Perhaps for you I will. I love the book itself, all textured and shiny.
