Stacking the Shelves (10)

It’s Saturday! And that means it’s time to take a look at the books that have been added to the stacks here at Reading Reality.

That’s right. It’s Stacking the Shelves time again. (If you want the details about STS, it’s hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. You can learn all about the history and mystery of this fabulous feature there)

Most of my books this week came with commitments attached, so I tried to keep the extras down to a trickle. Especially since I’m still behind from that pesky flu bug from last week. (Imagine me inserting a pitiful coughing sound here)

After my post this week about ARC hauls at conferences, I thought I would make a brief comment because I usually do get more books than a person can manage to read in a week. Even me. (I usually take one a day. Like vitamins only more fun)

This is part of the reason I like ebooks so much, e-ARCs in particular. No muss, no fuss, no shipping costs, no printing costs. I always request an e-ARC. The print ARCs I receive either arrive unsolicited, or that’s the only way a book I’ve committed to review is available.

And we already have over 2,000 print books in the house. The slower we increase that number, the better. Even if neither of us plans to ever stop reading!

      1. Oh wow, so glad I didn’t sample, but dived in! It did look fun and my grandmother grew up in that time, so it has always interested me. I’m thinking that understated may be a good cover hook. There is a point where all the covers kind of blurr together.

  1. This looks like a great lineup. I am reading The Chaperone now and had featured The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns on a “Books Worth Waiting For” post. I have not picked up a copy yet. I look forward to hearing what you think.
