Stacking the Shelves [01]



Hi guys. Today's Friends of the Library book sale went great! I got an entire box full of books (for 8$, I might add)! It's amazing. I'm exhausted, but I wanted to share what I got with you guys; especially because this week I got some books in giveaways and one for review (yes, the review list is still open but I'm still taking a 3 month break to catch up). I figured it'd be a great time to do my first Stacking the Shelves post! It's a weekly meme (very popular in the book blogosphere) hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Click the picture to be directed to her post. I get so excited when I get new books, and this week I got a LOT of them! I may have to make this a bi-weekly meme, depending on how many more books keep coming into my loving arms, :D

Books I WON >.<

Books I BOUGHT :e 







Ummm, yeah. So listing these would take forever. 
I'm exhausted from hauling boxes of books everywhere. I added them all on Goodreads today..if you're curious ;) (follow me on goodreads upper icon on the sidebar at the top). What books have you gotten this week? Have you read any of the ones I've shown above? :h

    1. I know, right? Well I got the discounted friends of the library membership and since I volunteered and helped all day I got a few for free! Some were 10/1$, others 3/1$ either way, that's cheapo! :O

    2. That is TOTALLY sweet. Maybe I should check out my local library for their book sales and see if I can volunteer. ;)

    3. Yea! U should check if they have a bookstore, first. If they do, you can go to book sales, but also go all the time! I go to the regional library for that...so I volunteer every week to work in the bookstore, not just the sales (that way I have a steady stream of books)! But I still go to my library nearer to my home. But in general I don't like used Library books bc of the dirtiness and the cover is all ruined...

      Goo luck! I hope ur library has a bookstore or a friends" then u can become a member and get volunteering and good deals! Let me know :O

  3. Wow, that's a crazy amount of books! I would be intimated taking so many books at home at once, just knowing they all want to be read. The only ones I've read are Wicked, Eragon, Rebel Angels and LotR. Of course, they were read so long ago that I don't really remember much of any of them. Still, good haul!

    1. Yeah, I've read Wicked too. It's the type I need to own...I own son of a witch and the ugly stepsister, so this was just waiting to join them in my shelf! Lately I'm trying to "build" up my collection, so I don't mind buying in bulk as long as I truly want to read, and am excited about each of them! ;)

  8. I also went to our Friends of the Library sale on Friday. I came home with a mix of hard and soft cover, 31 books total. I'm looking forward to next Sunday when it's $10 bag day. I can stuff about 50 soft covers in our FotL canvas bag. ;)
