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!

I managed to download a big pile of wishlist bargains which I'm going to spilt up into a couple of STS posts-otherwise I could be here for a while uploading the stuff, which is not ideal when your computer is playing funny buggers! The good news is that I won't have to venture out to do any shopping until after Christmas so I can avoid the stress and the crowds. Lovely! I really despise being subjected to the same damn Christmas music in every single shop! I swear if I hear 'Mistletoe and Wine' once more, I might hurt somebody...
So while I do my Scrooge thing, I am reading and catching up with a few TV shows, although that is going on hold so I can watch the World Championship darts on TV! Plus I get to watch in agony on Twitter as my beloved football team try to win a game for a change and get away from the relegation zone!
The book side of things is looking pretty groovy here. I've wanted to read Realm Walker for ages so I was pleased to get my hands on books one and two this week which I hope to read soon! I was intrigued by the sound of this Kelley Armstrong series so we'll see how I go with book one. I've heard very mixed opinions on Phoenix Island so I'm a bit doubtful that I'm going to like it but it has been on my wishlist for ages so I'll try it anyway. The Deanna Chase series I'm not sure about either as it might be too much like the cozy mystery or Queen Betsy books. I'm really in two minds about this. I did pick up four books in the series though. I like the sound of Rhiannon Frater's work though I haven't actually read anything of hers yet so this seemed a good opportunity to grab a few! I haven't read my Hilary Mantel tudor novels yet but I picked this one to read the short stories to ease me into her writing coz those other books are chunky!!!
Those of you who celebrate Christmas out there, have a good one!
