Stacking the Shelves: No. 8

True story: I think I’m suffering from book blackouts. My sister spent most of a day staring at me suspiciously when she started looking at a package that was addressed to me. Her reaction had been: “You bought MORE BOOKS?!” And it was a look of judgment. JUDGMENT, I tell ya!

When I looked at the package and seemed genuinely confused, she didn’t believe me. “I swear I didn’t buy another book!” I said as I looked into the package and ripped out the wrappings.

“Oh,” I said after pulling out the books. “OH. I did. I REMEMBER NOW.”

Yeah. That happened.

In my defense, Book Outlet called to me! I just HAD to get them because they were on sale. ON SALE! And um. Books, right?

Stacking the Shelves

We are all book lovers and the need to share our enthusiasm is sometimes overwhelming. Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

If you’re anything like me, you are probably hoarding books and even though you are excited about your latest book arrival, it might be a while before you get to review it and Stacking The Shelves is a good way to express your undying enthusiasm for those titles!

One thought on “Stacking the Shelves: No. 8

  1. Remember when I said I’d rearranged my books in the shelves so they weren’t stacked on top of each other (mostly because I filled up 5 boxes of books and then had to find places for them…). I have a chair with somewhere around 20 books on it, waiting to find a place to reside. (They were ON SALE!)
