Stacking The Shelves (19/07/2014)


Still hectic over in this household, packing like mad and waiting on a date for the rewiring for the electric! In between all of that I've somehow managed to find time to read and sort out my bookshelves. Speaking of bookshelves, guess what I bought this week? BOOKCASES. I can't wait to put them up and make a huge post showing off my collection but sadly I have to wait until the work is finished so they're just sitting in boxes right now.


Books Acquired This Week



So... not too many this week? I have to slow down on my book buying but I really don't want to!


Read This Week (Sat 12th - Fri 18th)



Great reads this week! I've been trying to read more sequels so I'm proud of myself for reading two. I do seem to average about 5 books read a week (I sold my soul to the Devil for a faster reading speed), so I guess the packing has slowed my reading down some.


Quick Question: What's your favourite smell?

  1. The problem is there's just so many good books out there, it's hard not to buy them! I enjoyed Rooftoppers. It's quite a unique read!

  3. So you normally read 5 books a week?! That's awesome! XD that's my aim too. I've been averaging a bit more lately, just because I'm reading smaller books and trying to get through my tbr really fast so I'm not so overwhelmed. x) My Stacking the Shelves!

  6. I wish that I could read 4-5 books a week but I never seem to find the time or motivation. Some weeks are better than others. I hope you enjoy the newest books :-)

  21. Yeah, I have trouble when it comes to getting new books to fill my shelves and my kindle with, too. Hopefully, I'll live a very long life so I will have time to read them all.
    My favorite smell is of tomatoes still on the plant. It is so yummy!
    Happy reading, Vickie, and thanks for stopping by this weekend.

  25. A face like Glass sounds quite interesting. After seeing it now a couple times this week, it is a must for going on my TBR. I hope it is as good for you (if not better) than it sounds! Happy Reading!
