Stacking the Shelves (121) / Sunday Post

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves or TBR piles, may it be physical or virtual.  This means you can include books you buy in a physical store, online, books you borrow from the library or friends, review books, gifts and of course, ebooks! The original meme was started over at Tynga's Reviews. And it now has a new co-host where individuals can link up as well - Marlene from Reading Reality.  Clicking on the book (or title) should take you to the Goodreads page.  I'm also now linking up with the Sunday Post which is hosted by Kimberly@Caffeinated Book ReviewerI'm hoping to discover some new blogs to love.

I had a few credits with Amazon and was interested in a couple of new releases.  When I saw that with the credits and my Prime benefits physical editions would only cost me $2.96, I couldn't resist.  They arrived late last week (after I scheduled last week's post).  I grabbed the newest on the Warlock Holmes series "The Hell-Hound of Baskersville" since I have a physical copy of the first and I love the cover of "Because You Love to Hate Me" and I hate reading anthologies on my Kindle for some reason so I grabbed it.




I also picked up a few books for my Kindle.  I saw "Hell Divers" on sale one day this week for $0.99 cents and since one of my B3s (Best Blogging Buddies) - Dragonfly over at Our Familiarium - recommended it to me ages ago I had to grab it.  "Violet Grenade" was also a daily deal one day last weekend. "The Haunting of Emily Stone" was free and since I seem to grab a free Amy Cross book weekly, why not.  Finally, I had to buy "The Spawn of Lilith" for full price but it was a reward because I've only had 3 half sodas in 2 months (and basically Coke is the only thing I'll mix bourbon with so that's the main reason why).


So what did you add to your shelves this week???

    1. I saw your post. What an awesome trip. I wish I lived closer to that place.

    2. I think I'm the perfect distance! Close enough where I can make a day trip once a year, but not too close that it becomes a financial issue! ha! :)

    3. Yea, that would be a problem living close to that store.

  4. Ah the new Warlock Holmes book! I hope to read the first book soon, maybe this month if I find the time. Hell Divers has been on my shelf for a few months just staring at me and I'll be reading that before the end of the year for sure.
