Stacking the Shelves - September 20, 2015

Welcome to last Stacking the Shelves of the Summer. It has been a good summer, but a very busy one and I haven't been able to say that in a while. But now, it is time to put summer behind me, break out the fall garland and get my pumpkin spice on. I am ready for cooler weather and Halloween season!

One of the problems I've been having lately is that when I am busy all weekend, I don't have time to take care of some of the necessary stuff, like pay bills, call about my EZ Pass acting up and stuff. Just to give you an idea. I check my email daily on my phone for all the book emails I get daily. Other than that, I have been ignoring my email. I have not been deleting email because when I sit down to take care of that, it takes hours. I looked at my In Box and had 17,211 emails in my In Box. Some are saved as new, but the majority are unread, so I sat here for a few hours deleting email which has got to be one of my least favorite things to do. I ended up deleting or moving to folders 6,216 emails. Sure, I still have over 10,000 emails to sort through and delete, but I did make progress. This is going to be my project for the week. I need to get the volume down to a more manageable level.

Anyhoo, it's possible that was just a stall tactic, so I didn't have to think about writing. I allow myself to get distracted so easily. Or I let Egg distract me. Not the point, though.

So this is my first STS post of the month. The weekends have been very busy. I spent last weekend in Cape May with my niece and sister-in-law and the weekend before doing things with family. My youngest brother is finally home after living in Germany for almost 5 years. I haven't see in him in two years, so it was a wonderful reunion. But this weekend, I gave up the chance to go to the Renaissance Festival so I could write. I said I need my time. So naturally, I took a nap for a few yesterday and I was in full-on Doctor Who mode with the season premier last night. I am the Queen of Procrastination.

Enough about my lameness, though. And before you judge too harshly, I am going to say that the majority of the physical copies I bought were all marked down 40% or more. Sadly, Amazon does not seem to be offering deep discounts like they were this summer. I'm just glad I took advantage.

So without more excuses, here is my haul for the month so far...

Giveaway Won:
Christopher Moore - Okay.  Technically, it was hubby who won, but it was only because I got the email and entered and then forwarded him the email to enter...from Romania.  And he won!!!  So from a certain perspective (okay, my perspective), I really won since he wouldn't have if I didn't tell him about it.

I'm totally keeping the throx, though.


  1. Life does indeed have a way of getting in the way. I'm lucky, unlucky depending on which way you look at it, in that my health problems mean I can spend more time on my blog than I might otherwise have been able to.

    Great selection of reads, I've seen Dumplin' featured on quite a lot of blogs though it doesn't particularly appeal to me. Anyway, happy reading.

    1. Work gets in the way of so much that I want to do, but then, so do I. I can find all kinds of things to do to distract me. Lately it's Minion Rush on my iPad. It's a special limited challenge! Time is of the essence.

  2. Oh I loved The Almost Girl and I hope you do too!

    1. I had The Fallen Prince on my wishlist not realizing it was book 2. I haven't picked up yet, but perhaps that will be my bath book tonight.
