Stacking the Shelves - August 2015 Edition

I've have had some issues with time management. Not so much that I can't balance my time, more that I have had no time to spare. Doesn't help that I was gone for half the month. I really did plan to schedule posts in my absence, but it always seems like what I want to do comes last in just about every scenario.

Well, hubby is now home, but I did join him for the last two weeks of his trip. He sure was glad to be home and Egg was happy to have both his people right where he feels they belong, within eyesight. So, I've been spending a lot of time this past week making it up to him.

The fun part of being away was going to the post office and picking up the mail I put on hold. Quite a few boxes!! So before you judge me too harshly, I do just want to say that the majority of books I bought were all discounted at least 40%. It was about two months of deep, deep discounts and I took full advantage. They still have some of the books on my wish list discounted over 40% like The Rose Society by Marie Lu and The White Rose by Amy Ewing, but most of the books dropped down to Amazon's more normal discount strategy. I'm glad I ordered when I did.

So, anyway, here is my haul for the month.

  1. Always good to come home to your own bed and better still to come home to such a wonderful selection of books.

    1. It is at that. I don't often sleep well, but I have a really hard time in humidity with no air conditioner. It was over 90 degrees every day and most places we stayed did not have air conditioning. Plus, the pillow is never right.

      Now that the summer is over, I am trying to figure out how to balance my life after work hours so I can ensure I have time to read and time to blog and perhaps try to do some exercise. I haven't had a lot of free time this summer so I have to get back in the groove.
