Welcome back to Stacking the Shelves! This is my second stab at both this meme, and my new Gimp graphics program. About the meme, the deets on that are over at Tynga’s Reviews. We all post what we’ve received, borrowed, bought, etc. during the week.
About the graphics program…Gimp stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It’s Open Source, and it’s an alternative to Adobe Photoshop. I wanted to do a big cover spread picture, and MS Paint just isn’t that able. So far, well, see big cover spread below.
From Kensington Books (in response to On My Wishlist #6)

All the books above, except for the Lisa See book, came in a plastic-wrapped wodge from the publisher. I don’t know why. They also came with their very own tote bag. Based on the size of said plastic wodge, they really NEED that tote bag!

I know, I know. I was bad this week. I’m not quite sure what to do with that tote from Hogarth Press (that’s the wodge). Have a contest and give it away?
But please tell me, did you get lots of books this week too? What’s stacking up on your shelves?
