Stacking the shelves #3

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews. It's a chance to share what new books and swag we received from giveaways, for review, borrowed from the library, and bought! :)

This week was another big week for me in terms of shelf-stackyness ;) I volunteered at two different library bookstores (started at the University library too, which was fun). So I bought quite a few books this week too. I also won a bunch of giveaways and got both ebooks and actual copies in the mail. It's been a great week! :rainbow

And that's it for my Stack the Shelves this week. I think I definitely have my hands...erm, shelves full for awhile now. I'm going to try really hard not to buy too many more books this week! I think the fact that I spent all my money on books will strengthen my resolve, :r lol. Oh, is anyone else doing Dewey's RAT this weekend? I am looking forward to it! I got the novella Lenobia's Vow because I heard sometimes one gets sick of reading a long novel during the 24-hr RAT. 
What did you get STS this week? Leave your link in the comments below and I'll check it out and follow back! Happy Reading Weekend everyone!
