First, I may not often say this, but it is always true; this Stacking the Shelves post is part of the Stacking the Shelves meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books we’re adding to our shelves, whether those books (and shelves) are physical or virtual. If you want to see the panoply of everyone’s shelves, check out the list of blogs who have attached themselves to this week’s post at Tynga’s. I’ll be there too.
Speaking of physical and/or virtual shelves, occasionally someone either asks if I read all the books I get, or wonders what I do with all the ARCs I get, or simply wonders if I’m nuts.
The answer to the third question may be self-evident.
Except for library books, I try not to get print. We already have more than enough print books in the place (we’re looking for a new apartment, and we’ll be reducing the hoard again). NetGalley and Edelweiss are my BFFs.
In the end, I read about 50% of what I get, although that might be a LONG end. But overall, about 50%. I already have tour commitments for 6 of the books on this list, and a maybe on a 7th, but some of those tours aren’t until March and April of 2014.
Planning for Spring! Now that’s a ray of sunshine on an otherwise gloomy November day.
