Stacking the Shelves - July 13. 2014

This week I decided to try something different. I decided to post my STS the shelves earlier in the day rather than closer to midnight where I invariably start to yawn the jaw-breaking yawns and have to bag the attempt in favor of going to bed. I have this issue where the yawns are so big and frequent that it makes my eyes water and it is difficult to concentrate on anything I am trying to do. The only thing that helps is sugar or my strong peppermint Ice Breakers gum. On a Sunday, night, though, if it happens, I have no recourse but to try to go to sleep. It's been happening a lot lately. So, I figured I would take the afternoon to do book things, chores and bike ride be damned. We'll try this approach on for size and see how it fits.

Since I was unable to post last week due to above issue, here are the books I've picked up over the last two weeks.

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