Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s ReviewsStacking 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!

Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress so you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
Ugh. I haven't been able to post a single thing this week because of a viral infection. It's nothing serious but it was enough to make me very tired, grumpy, and left me with no concentration or motivation to get anything done! Thankfully it did not affect my desire to read, so I still got a good deal done. I'm very close to finishing my 100 book countdown challenge, over four months ahead of schedule! Very happy about that and will post an update either tomorrow or Monday. So the tbr is getting close to 500 books for the first time in many years! Once I get below the magic 500 I'll feel as if I'm slowly taking control of my tbr again!
So what did I do this week? Not much really. I spent my birthday in my doctor's waiting room which was a great laugh. I treated myself to an awesome dinosaur duvet set! I wanted a Jurassic World one but they only seem to do duvets for single beds which is annoying for the mature fan! I did get this set from Amazon and it is so brilliant! My dad bought me a pile of dvds which I hope to get watching at some point-he had already got me Arrow 1 & 2, Strike Back 1-4 and Hannibal 2 but surprised me with Alcatraz 1 and Teen Wolf 1 as well. Yea! And I treated myself to a few books as well but I might save them for next week's haul!
So, this week's haul is another example of restraint! I bought the next two volumes of Rhiannon Frater's companion short stories for her As the World Dies series. I won't be able to read them until I read books 2 and 3 in the actual trilogy but it's something to look forward to. If you love zombie books, you have to read this author! I picked up the Making of Jurassic Park 2 cheap on Amazon which was nice for my dinosaur addiction! I have the other 6 Slow Burn books so I just HAD to grab book 7 as well. So far, I've only read the first book but I really enjoyed it and plan to get on with this series soon.
