Stacking the Shelves - September 21, 2014

I'll give no excuses.
I'll tell you no lies.
I think it's depressing
How quickly time flies.

I. Can't. Even. Begin. To. Tell. You.

Let's leave it at that. And I will go on as if nothing had ever happened.

While I was lost in my head, it seems I have acquired some reading materials. I believe the post was supposed to be for August 10th, so this will be for the past month and a half.

I am ashamed all over again.

August early on was pretty good, but I have had a book buying drought. A sort of self imposed moratorium on book buying if you will.  Some of the books purchased are used books.  I just want to make that clear.  So, they needed a home because they weren't wanted anymore where they were currently living.

Anyway, without further delay (cause a month and a half hasn't been a delay enough), I bring you my book acquisitions...
