[Stacking The Shelves: Episode Nine]

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews!

This week I didn't spend much at all on books!  Which is a good thing.  I've been trying to be better about how much and what I spend my money on book wise!  That being said I still have a pretty awesome haul!  One of my good friends bought me a signed copy of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman at WonderCon!  Hell yes, Neil is one of my favorites!  Plus, I got a surprise ARC and while out on what turned out to be a great day of yard saleing I snagged some amazing old hardback books for next to nothing (like a dollar)!  Even if one of them is my third old school version of Gone With The Wind.  So now you know what at least two of the books are, but let me show you the rest!

Ooo nice! 'Gone With The Wind' in my opinion is one of the best books; it's just written well and the story, well it's just really great :) I've wanted to read 'Rebecca.' I love the film. I hope you enjoy them all!

I'm really intrigued about Icons! That one looks great! And yay for classics! I'm trying to read a bunch of classics this year, just because of how...classic they seem and I feel like I'll be more eloquent with them in my head so I can randomly make references ;)

Great haul, Christianna! Hope you enjoy! :)

I really want to read Neil Gaiman's novels but never got around to them. Very jealous of the signed copy! Happy Reading!

Thanks for stopping by! :) I have both The Catcher in the Rye and The Graveyard Book, but haven't read either of them yet. I hope you enjoy!

Whoa, you've got quite a few classics for this week! Personally, I'm not too big on them but my best friend adored Catcher in the Rye. As for me, I loved The Graveyard Book (Neil Gaiman is brilliance personified) and am looking forward to reading Icons!

Thanks for stopping by my StS!

I haven't read anything by Niel Gailman and I think I need to change that because I have come to know some bloggers who love him quite a bit. I am also really curious about Icons, I haven't read anything by Stohl but I met her at a signing and she was so hilarious! Fabulous haul!

I really want to read Gone With the Wind. I watched the 4 hour long movie once and loved it. Hope you enjoy all those books!

Ashley said...

Ohh I can't wait to see what you think of Icons! I really want to read it!

The Catcher in the Rye is one of my all time favourite reads. And I also need to get reading Gone with the Wind (my Mom's fave book). :) Great StS!
