Stacking the Shelves #5/Sunday Post #2

Hey bookish friends! I hope your weekend is going well. I had another surprising week of books coming in, so I thought I would share again this weekend 😀

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! And audiobooks. Don’t forget audiobooks! In other words, if you can read it or if it can be read to you – no matter how you got it – it belongs in Stacking the Shelves. The Stacking the Shelves meme is hosted at Reading Reality.

Net Galley:

(I am cutting WAY back on ARC this year, but couldn't resist this one since I am opening a Free Little Library at the end of this month)

 
My Library/Owned books that I hope to read this month:

 
I recently did a post on Facebook looking for people to participate in a book exhange, you send one book and could get up to 36 back, I received 5 this week and I am thrilled!!!

And I added 25 books to my Goodreads shelf this week! It's too many to post here 😉 

I am also linking up with the Sunday Post. The Sunday Post is a blog news meme hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on your blog for the week ahead. Join in weekly, bi-weekly or for a monthly wrap up.
 
What books have you added to your physical or virtual bookshelves? I would love to hear from you. Click on the icon below to join in on the fun.

  2. I loved Before We Were Yours and Where the Crawdads Sing! What a great haul! And I hope we both enjoy The Littlest Library, that cover is too cute.

    1. Wendy, I have had Before We Were Yours on my TBR list forever so I was excited to receive it. I am not sure what to think of Where the Crawdad's Sing,I had heard of it but never had a desire to read it. Because it is the person who sent its favorite book, I will give it a try and hopefully enjoy it. I think The Littlest Library will be interesting! Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Cindy! I am also not going to take ARC's before the current pile isn't at least cut by half. I did well this week, so lets hold thumps.

    I so want to open a little free library here with us, but everything, and I mean EVERYTHING gets stolen here in SA if it's not behind lock and key. So sad. Still trying to figure out how I can do this!

    Have a good week and happy reading!

    1. Yay for both of us for holding strong on the ARC's. I turned down 3 just today! I plan to stamp my books to discourage stealing but not sure yet if that will work or not. It would be great if you were able to open one, but I get your concerns. Have a great week!

  6. The Littlest Library looks cute. I'm trying to cut back on ARCs too. There are just too many to accept.

    I hope you have a great week!

  8. I don't think I could resist The Littlest Library either. It sounds like a fun read. You got some great books through the book exchange! I've tried participating in those a couple of times and received no books and so I avoid them now. I am glad you fared better! I hope you have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    1. Yay, I didn't know how the book exchange would turn out. One of my friends posted about it on her page and someone immediately posted under it that it was scam so no one took her up on it. It made me sad. I figured even if it was just one for one it would be a win. Have a great week!

  11. I would love to have a Little Free Library. How exciting!

    I love Pride & Prejudice! Where the Crawdads Sing was really good but the geographical errors drove me up the wall. I wish someone had caught them before publication.

    Enjoy your week!

    1. Thanks Jen, I am excited about the Little Free Library. Maybe I won't notice the geographical errors with Where the Crawdads Sing, LOL. Have a great week!

  12. I am crazy about my Little Free Library. I've had one for going on ten years. It's a delight.

    Your book exchange idea sounds great. I will look for more details.

    Have a lovely week, Cindy!

    1. Deb, you are the one who inspired me with the Little Free Library and I can't wait until it opens. The artisan said the week of January 24th and I am keeping my fingers crossed that there are no delays! The Book Exchange was going around on Facebook if you are on there, you could participate in mine, if you wanted, I am Cindy Davis on there as well.

  14. Every year is the year I'll cut back on arcs! Oh that red phone box cover just makes me want to read the book.

    1. I lost count of how many ARC's I read last year, easily over a hundred and I got behind and that kept me stressed. I need to cut back for my own sanity! For this year so far counting carry-overs I had 20 and have completed 4. Yes, the red phone box was an immediate impulse ask, LOL!

  15. How exciting that you received so many books. I did some book exchanges, but never received something myself.
    Your new books look great.
    Have a great week and happy reading.

    1. Maureen, I am so sorry to hear that! It's hard to do especially if you don't have a lot of bookish friends, or your bookish friends don't have bookish friends. Have a great week!

  17. What fun to be opening your own Little Free Library! I would love to do that, but I don't think I can get my homeowner's association to agree to it. And The Littlest Library looks delightful; I downloaded it, too.

    1. Lark, I am excited and impatiently waiting for it to be built so I can get going on it :) I am so excited. Our home owner's association doesn't exist so I didn't need approval. Yours might surprise you, it never hurts to ask. I hope we both enjoy The Littlest Library. Have a great week.

    1. Jessica, the only thing I don't like about the copy of Pride and Prejudice is the font is sooooooo small! The cover is beautiful though. Thanks for stopping by!
