Stacking the Shelves (1)

Books have been slow in coming since Hurricane Sandy ran through New York. Right after Christmas, things picked up. Here are a few books I've added to my shelves - some solicited, others not. Some I'm very excited to read!

Here are a few:

On my Kindle, I bought or was sent:

(Because I love my chickens!)


I know it's a modge podge. I haven't been good at keeping records during December and the first of January. I think I'm really waiting for another book to really WOW me. I've hit a dry spell. Any suggestions?

What did you read this week or add to your collection?

I think eclectic is a better word for your haul. I have Altered on my pile as well. That one looks interesting. I need to get Fifty Cents and a Dream. I saw some partial art at a publisher preview last spring, and thought it was fabulous!

Love your blog colors and name! I need to jazz my pages up a bit and explore how to add some gadgets and such. Thanks for stopping by my STS.

You have a Nicole mix of books in this haul. I LOVE the sound of The One Good Thing and I can't wait till its released so I can pick up a copy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I really enjoyed 11/22/63, and a few other books in your stack look promising.
