Stacking the Shelves - February 23rd, 2014

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  While I don't have much to share this week, one of the books is kind of a big thing for me.

Purchased at the $1 Store:

I have been a huge fan of Daniel Nayeri since I first read Another Faust.  Unfortunately, I wasn't blogging here yet, so I can't share my review of it.  But I had to look at the books at the $1 store, even though I didn't need any new ones.  And when I saw this, I know I probably gasped loudly.  I have had trouble getting ahold of this, at least trying to order at the bookstore where I worked, so I was very excited to find this, and at that awesome price!

My claim to fame!

Now you can tell this isn't a book I wrote, and it isn't about me, it is about one of my favorite authors.  So, why am I calling this my claim to fame?  Well, you might remember about a year and a half ago I mentioned getting an email from a publishing company wanting to use a picture from when I attended BEA.  I announced this last summer during an exciting week where I also finally got hired for a library job.  You can read the post HERE.   Well, above you see the book finally published that has my picture and gives me credit for the picture in it.  Here's the page with the picture:

Now while I am in the picture, meaning I obviously didn't take the picture, it was taken with my camera by the person in line behind me.  And below is the page with my name for them giving me credit for using the picture, the orange post-its pointing to my my name since it kind of ended one line and began the next.

Now, I know at BEA we're not really allowed to bring other books to get signed by the authors, but this one will be in my book to at least show Maggie Stiefvater if she is there this summer.  Which I'm hoping she will be, along with ARCs of the third book in the Raven Boys series.

So, not a lot for me this week, only 2 books.  But still, pretty exciting ones for me!  What did you add to your shelves this week?
