Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which we feature all the book goodness that we received, borrowed or purchased during the previous week. All links are to Goodreads.

This week, on the 4th, hubby and I celebrated 20 years of marriage. This weekend we are planning a quick vacation to celebrate.  Also, look at what the dear man did for me this week:

That's right!  A Kindle Fire :)  My other Kindle is a K2 (second generation) and it was starting to show its age.  Do you have a Kindle Fire?  Do you love it? Got some tips for me?

Also, we got another Billy bookshelf from Ikea, because I was running out of space and my books from BEA were still in bags all over the basement floor. Hubby put it together for me and even helped me move some of the books.

Purchased (Physical Books)

Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent - I love the Soul Screamer series and I can't wait to see what happens next with Kaylee and Tod.

So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev - This is the conclusion of the Theater Illuminata series, if you haven't read it, please give it a try. 

This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel - This is a new series called the Appretinceship of Victor Frankestein, sounds interesting, right?


Kindle Fire How-To Guide by Michael Gallagher - Because I need to learn all about my new gadget :)

That's it for me gorgeous people!  What is stacking your shelves this week?


  1. Oooooh the Kindle Fire is so pretty. I read This Dark Endeavour a few months ago, it was pretty good. I will check back for your review!

  2. I still have to read the third to fifth Soul Screamers book before I get Before I Wake (haha, that sounded funny) but I am super jealous of the Kindle Fire! I actually have the first Kindle, and it doesn't even have a case! -.- It's kind of annoying, but at the same time oddly appropriate. So I don't have any wisdom for you on that!

    Check out my Stacking the Shelves!

  3. Congrats on your anniversary and the Kindle Fire. Happy reading!


  4. This Dark Endevour looks fantastic! Congrats on the anniversary and great gift! :)

  5. Ooh - congratulations on the Kindle!!! What an awesome gift. I don't have an eReader yet, which I don't mind, but I'm starting to envy all those free books I keep seeing people writing about.

  6. Sweet haul this week! I wanted a Kindle Fire but my hubs bought me an Android instead because the Fire isn't supported here. I still want it though! lol Happy belated anniversary! Enjoy the books you got this week :) Happy reading!

  9. Happy Anniversary ! What a great gift. I just got my Kindle Fire last month and I love it. It's honestly really easy to use. I am still learning myself. I downloaded an IM app and I can talk to all my friends , from facebook to yahoo. all my accounts hooked together.

    One thing I can say battery goes pretty quick if you stay online with it. But really doesn't bother me that much.

    I haven't really done much other than buy tons of free books LOL.
