Stacking the Shelves - December 8th, 2013


Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  This week was another average week for me.  I actually bought more books than I'll show here when I went to the Scholastic Book Fair this weekend.  But most of those books were for my school library, so I won't count them as being added to MY shelves.  

Checked out from the library:







The first I checked out at the school library where I work.  The 2nd I had to check out from the public library because I have the 3rd book as an e-galley, and so I still needed to read the 2nd one.  

Won from the author:


I won this book from the author earlier this year, but she had to get another copy ordered, so it took a bit for me to get it.  I can't find the email to remember if it was through a blog tour, or maybe through Shelf Awareness.  

Purchased from Scholastic Warehouse Sale:






The first one is a sequel to a Truman award nominee, and I need to read on.  The 2nd one just sounds like a really good post-apocalyptic story.  And I spent $1.50 on one of them, and $2 on the other.  The Scholastic Warehouse sale is awesome.

E-galleys from Edelweiss:










Almost forgot the e-galleys I got from Edelweiss this week.  I read on their website about an app called Bluefire Reader, and now I can download them directly to my Nook HD.  So much easier than what I had been doing.  I saw all of these on the Epic Reads video last week as well.

So that was my week.  I also finally realized I needed to do something to celebrate reaching 1800 followers, and so I decided to give away $18 to one of my followers.  While you're visiting, make sure you go enter the contest HERE.

    1. Yeah, it is my next book to read I think! Not sure why I didn't get it as an e-galley when that is how I read the first book in the series, and now I have the 3rd book as an e-galley, but oh well! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I've heard so many good things about Through the Ever Night as well as the first one, but I have yet to read them! Hopefully I'll be able to cross them off my TBR list soon. Happy reading! :)
