Stacking the Shelves (294)

Stacking the Shelves

This is the post-ALA “OMG don’t all the books look shiny!” edition of Stacking the Shelves.

But let me be clear, I didn’t walk out with ARCS of any of these – or actually anything at all. These are, for the most part, books I saw or heard about at the conference and then picked up eARCs from Edelweiss and NetGalley. I can’t carry this many books. Galen and I together can’t carry this many books. And we didn’t have room for nearly this many books in our luggage. I did see plenty of people walking around – let’s be honest here, lumbering around – with either big stacks of books in their arms or multiple overflowing bags of books hanging from their arms. And it looked PAINFUL. This is why I love eARCs. My iPad weighs exactly the same no matter how many books are in it.

Occasionally, however, this presents a problem. As you can see, I also don’t know when to quit!

  1. I like physical books but I am really a bigger fan of eARCs as well. I love that they don’t take up space and being able to adjust the font size is a big plus for my old eyes. I do like having copies of some of my favorites but I prefer reading on my Kindle. Enjoy all of your new books!

  2. I am drooling over all these books! I understand not wanting to carry all these books home. I have a couple of these on my TBR shelf as well (e-ARCs). I don’t have Circe, but that one is on my wish list big time. It sounds so good! I hope you enjoy all of these!

  3. I’m not an e-book reader. I have a Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kobo, iPad…and oodles of e-books but I just prefer holding a real book in my hand! Happy reading!
