Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. I’m not sure why I haven’t participated in this feature before now – I love to to collect books, show them off, and see what other people are interested in. A lot of the other book blogs I follow do this every week and I find myself geeking out on their behalf that all the cool stuff they get.
Many of you know that I’ve been a bookseller for almost eleven years. Imagine how many books you would accumulate if you went to a bookstore five days a week and were handed a paycheck before you left the building on Fridays… A lot – that’s how many. Let’s put it this way, my friends and family have informed me that I am not allowed to move ever again because they got tired of lugging my books around. Anyway, I thought I would start this first feature with a look at a section of my library (those of you on Facebook have likely seen this already):
This makes up about two thirds of my adult collection. There are a couple more bookshelves on the opposite wall with more, and then four more shelves in another room with all my teen and young adult books. I seriously could just sit on the floor and stare at my collection all day.
So now that you’ve had a chance to see the shelves I’m stacking (don’t ask me where I’m going to put the new ones) let’s take a look at the books I’ve accumulated over the month of July:
Purchased (both hard copy and e-book):
ARCs (Thank you, NetGalley!):
and Giveaways (Thank you, The Polished Page-Turner for hosting such an amazing giveaway!):
Now that I’m adding it all up, July was a really expensive month, but I can see I’m in for some really great reading! [sorry, husband! ;)]
What books filled your shelves this month?
