Stacking the Shelves #23, Sunday Post #20, Sunday Salon #15

Hey bookish friends! How are things going for you? This morning I will be baby-sitting and then this afternoon I will be shopping with my daughter. Tomorrow morning is church and I plan to spend the afternoon/evening reading, blogging, and chilling with my family.

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. The Stacking the Shelves meme is hosted at Reading Reality.

NetGalley:

None.

Library:

None.

Kindle Freebies:

Bought

None.

Book Mail:

 
 The first two I won off of Chautona's Instagram account (I actually already own them on Kindle but I love paperback copies!). The next two are for blog tours for Kregel and the last one I won in a book giveaway!

 I added 15 books to my Goodreads shelf this week. Funny store, I was cleaning things out and I find a handwritten list of books that I wanted to read...I don't know how long I had that list but I added them to my Goodreads account so I could throw the paper away.

I finished 3 books this week. I have posted two of the reviews and the other will post tomorrow (Sunday).

I am also linking up with the Sunday Post. The Sunday Post is a blog news meme hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer. I will also be joining Deb at Readerbuzz for the Sunday Salon.

What books have you added to your physical or virtual bookshelves? I would love to hear from you. Click on the icons below to join in on the fun. Have a great weekend!

    1. Mae, I have the opposite problem, so many good books and not enough time. I guess if depends on what genres you prefer.

  6. Cindy, I'd say you are doing a great job - stacking the shelves LOL I discovered from another blogger a great app called BOOK BUDDY in less than (1) hour I now have all my physical books (200+) on the app and hope to add all my eBooks (2,000+) LOL at some point as well.

    1. Diane, do you use any other apps/websites to keep track of your books? I like Goodreads and will look into Book Buddy. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Hope you enjoy all the books. I got approved for four more on Netgalley, including Nicholas Sparks' latest, and a publisher sent me a HUGE 914 page book which is going to take a couple months to read.

    1. Bonnie, 914 pages, WOW! What book is it? And, I HOPE you like it!!! I am still debating requesting some on Net Galley but I'm not sure. I need to see what my obligations are and what I think would be best.

  11. I tried cleaning up my Goodreads TBR, then I keep adding, so don't know why I bothered, lol. Hope you enjoy your new books!

  13. I love free kindle books! I also love the Goodreads app and am constantly adding new books with the hope that maybe someday I will get round to getting a copy and reading them 🤣

    1. Emily, yes! If I can't afford it I ask my library to order books. I am planning to do that soon!

  14. Sounds like you've got a perfect weekend planned with a lot of family time. I love all these beautiful, vintage-looking book covers. Hope you have a great week!

  15. OMG I LOVE when I find a handwritten list of books to be added to my Goodreads! I would probably paste the handwritten list into my bullet journal in addition to adding the books to my GR because I love handwritten things like that, even if they are in my crappy handwriting. LOL

    Sounds like a lovely, peaceful, Sunday! Enjoy!

    1. Lol, it was funny! It had to be at least 5-10 years old!!

  16. Hi Cindy!! It feels as if I've been away for ages, but it's only been just over a week.

    Book Mail doesn't count as adding books to your TBR. It's "work". Oh how I love my own logic!! But you did get a few really great ones.

    Hope you are well and that you will have a good week ahead!

  17. I really like the cover for Midnight's Budding Morrow. It's really pretty. :) Your weekend sounds nice and relaxing. We had an openhouse for our place yesterday. We just got done with church about an hour ago and now I'm just relaxing. I hope you have a great week.

  24. I don't think it really counts as new books if you are just adding books that have been on a list for a long time. lol

    I'm always tempted by Kindle freebies. I hope your weekend was lovely!

    1. Deb, LOL, true!! I am being more discerning with my Kindle freebies, I want to make sure I am only getting books I really want to read. I had a good weekend and hope you did as well.
