Stacking the Shelves - September 7th, 2014





Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. I've got a few things to share this week!


E-galleys from Edelweiss:





As you know, I've been lusting after The Cemetery Boys for awhile now, so when I saw others had it last week, I immediately went to download it myself!  The Prey was also on several people's STS last week, and it sounded interesting, so I got it as well.

E-galley from Netgalley:


This is supposedly kind of a retelling of Pinocchio, and I do enjoy a good retelling, so I downloaded it to give it a try.

Won:

I can't for the life of me find the email to remind me who I won this from!  I think I have it written somewhere at work, so I'll look on Monday and update it if I can.

Stripped Covers from bookstore:







 

Working at a bookstore, I've mentioned before that paperback books are often requested to send back to the publisher. But to save money, all the publishers have us do is strip the covers and send just the covers back.  The rest of the book is then thrown away or recycled.  One perk of being a bookseller is that we are allowed to take these occasionally.  So these are ones I was able to get this past week.  I've heard such great things about Mira Grant that I was very excited to get these.

Free Nook Books:

The first three of these are prequel e-novellas. The last one is a short story, only 25 pages, but it was free and sounded like it might be a cute read.

So, lots of new reads this week.  I think maybe I need to make a challenge for next year to make myself read these free books I download, as they often just sit on my Nook HD. 

While you're here, I have one more day left on my September is for Sequels Giveaway.  Click the button below to go enter!

  1. Ohh I have heard really good things about the Mira Grant books too! They are definitely on my wish-list :) That is pretty cool that you get to take books that would have ended up being recycled (which is kind of sad!)- they end up going to a reader, yay! And The Cemetery Boys does sound interesting! Hope you enjoy all the books this week, and thanks for stopping by my StS :)

    1. I was so excited, and so shocked when I saw they were going to be stripped covers. ANd I totally agree that it is wasteful, but I guess it saves money on shipping, and also makes sure the store doesn't make money off of them without giving that money back to the publisher. Thanks for returning the visit!

  2. I've been debating whether or not to get The Cemetery Boys and The Prey! I just can't decideeee. I have so much to read, but they sound interesting too... Gosh. :) Ooh, I haven't heard of Puppet! I love retellings, and I don't think I've seen one of Pinocchio! Will definitely have to look that up.

    That's such a shame to me that the books get their covers torn off and recycled! I understand why, but :(. At least you're able to take them and enjoy them! :)

    Have a great week!!

    1. I love Heather Brewer's books, and she's been talking about The Cemetery Boys on Facebook for so long I had to have it! Puppet looked interesting so I grabbed it. I hate seeing that they do that with the books. We used to be able to take magazines too, but they don't let us take those anymore. It kind of sucks. Thanks for visiting!
