Stacking The Shelves (06/07/2014)
My STS is a day late this week because I've been on holiday in surprisingly sunny London! I had so much fun and saw so much, the week just flew by. I saw The Lewis Chessmen, The Rosetta Stone, ginat Egyptian Statues, one of the biggest Waterstone's bookshops I've ever been in and nearly ended up walking into a News Boroadcast. It's been eventful!
Books Acquired This Week
Bought in London - I only planned to take two books with me and not buy many, which I think I did! However I did read a lot more than I expected, so bought more. Just in case.
Arrived In The Mail - I'm on a bit of a Strange Chemistry kick and couldn't resist these! I also bought Pantomime and Shadowplay but the haven't been delivered yet. Vintage Books said that If I retweeted #VintagePancake I could have a free copy of Trilobites. So I did. It's kind of sad though, because the author committed suicide at 26. Moving on, I manged to snag myself a copy of The One on RISI, in exchange for my copy of The Miseduation of Cameron Post, which I didn't enjoy.
Giveaway Win- I WON A GIVEAWAY. I was so, so excited to win this from Twitter and the bag is just hilarious, I can't wait to take it shopping with me.
New bookmarks from Book Depository - I love these but a small rant - I bought three books, separating the orders to get three bookmarks. And I got two. I may sound greedy but Book Depository have a weird habit of throwing in up to 9 bookmarks in one package. So they end up not having enough bookmarks to go around. Fix your shit guys.
Books Read This Week
I was amazed by just how many books I got through this week, considering how much stuff we got done too - here's what I read. (The last couple of lines in The Winner's Curse just grabbed my heart and stamped on it. Then threw it in the sea.)
Anna Carey - Blackbird (4/5)
Dancing To This Week
That's all from me this week, I hope you've all been having a fun summer!
