It’s Saturday again and this weekend we are sweltering in the Summer weather of Kansas City. We’re getting up really early to enjoy the day before the temperatures go soaring off into the stratosphere.

Saturday means that it’s time for my weekly Stacking the Shelves post. Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Marlene at Reading Reality and details are on her blog. The gorgeous graphic is also used courtesy of the site.

Stacking the Shelves 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!

My STS posts are generally my library books. The library is where I get most of my books and I hope that maybe I can inspire other people to use their local library. Our libraries are constantly under threat of closure but the more people that use them, the less likely that is. My library is also how I manage to read a lot of newly released hardbacks as I can order them. Sometimes they can take quite a while to arrive if a title is really popular though.

However, as we’re on holiday in the US this week, I haven’t made my weekly trip to the library so my post is about the actual books that I have bought in the past couple of weeks. I needed a good supply of books to occupy myself on the two flights we’ve taken this week as well as on the return next week so I added a couple of physical books from Waterstones as well as two on my kindle.

I have fantasy and crime fiction so I’m well stocked for the next week. Not to mention a quick trip to Barnes and. Noble this afternoon.

Despite so many gorgeous books to tempt me, I only bought one

What have you added to your shelves this week?

  1. Nice haul, Janette! I hope you’re enjoying your time in Kansas City! That fountain looks like a good way to cool off.

  2. Such restraint, only buying one book. I always love to read when traveling, so I hope you enjoyed the books she read on your flight over and again when you go back.

    1. It wasn’t difficult to show restraint as books are more expensive in the US. I just bought one that I haven’t seen on sale in England yet
