Stacking the Shelves (268)

Stacking the Shelves

Welcome to the last and final Stacking the Shelves post of the year. A post in which I’m not actually stacking anything. I did get a few books this week, but not much.

As I said in last week’s STS, my mother went into hospice last Thursday. She passed away on Xmas Day, and her funeral was Wednesday. It was a blustery 6 degrees in Cincinnati that day. I had to borrow one of her coats to have something halfway warm enough to wear at her graveside ceremony. Which felt more than a bit weird, but it still smelled like her perfume and that was surprisingly comforting.

We’re finally home, but it seems that I brought a case of food poisoning home with me along with everything we cleaned out of her apartment. I’m toast.

Which doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t add a link to your Stacking the Shelves post in the linky below.

Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings and a safe New Year’s to you and yours.

  1. I’m sorry you had such a dreadful end to your year. I hope the new year starts out better.

    For anyone wanting to add to their TBR piles, Amazon has a lot of books from the Goodreads awards on sale today.

  2. I hope 2018 finds you well and full of happiness. I can’t even begin to imagine how hard it would be to have all of that going on and lose a parent, especially during the holidays. <3 You and your family are in my thoughts. And if you're in Cincinnati, I'm not far from you. 🙂 About an hour away.
