I have a Japanese lesson for us all today. Read?
積ん読 [つんどく: TSUNDOKU] buying books and not reading them.
Because seriously. SERIOUSLY. How did I end up with NINE new books this week? Granted I DID only spend $6 total on them… but OMG SELF WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!
Here’s what I stacked my (virtual) shelves with this week…
ARCs that I received this week!
Not a Drop to Drink – Mindy McGinnis
The Chaos of Stars – Kiersten White
The Summer I Became a Nerd – Leah Rae Miller
Ink – Amanda Sun
Outcast – Adrienne Kress
I was ECSTATIC to receive NOT A DROP TO DRINK and THE CHAOS OF STARS. Thank you thank you THANK YOU HARPER TEEN. I LOVED THE SUMMER I BECAME A NERD (check out my review here!) and I’m very interested in INK. I have thoughts on that already and I’m curious to see what my thoughts are after reading it. OUTCAST was recommended to me by a friend, and I’m already hearing good things about it.
Purchased (all on sale in the kindle store)
Smart Girls Get What They Want – Sarah Strohmeyer
What My Girlfriend Doesn’t Know – Sonya Sones
The Madman’s Daughter – Megan Shepherd
Harken – Kaleb Nation
These were ALL ON SALE (hear that self?! ALL ON SALE!) I made a promise to myself back in March that I could only buy ebooks that are ON SALE. Well, this didn’t go so well because I was like ‘SAVE A DOLLAR?! OKAY BUY NOW!’ so now I’m only allowed to buy books that are $1.99 or less. UNLESS it’s like some book that I’ve been DYING FOREVER AND EVER to read. These are all books that I WANT to read and would totally pick up for .99 at a used bookstore. So that’s the logic I’m working with. If I don’t get around to them for awhile well… that’s okay. But I DO want to read them.
So yeah. My strange addiction. What did you guys stack your selves with this week?
ALSO BEFORE YOU GO! I have some awesome news that I’m going to reveal soon but… for now I would like to announce that I’m going to be hosting my FIRST GIVEAWAY VERY SOON!!! So check back through the next week or follow me on twitter @innocencewalker to keep updated!
Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It 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!
