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

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. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts. So if you use DISQUS, I can't visit you! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress so you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
So we're approaching the end of January and I have enjoyed my month of reading. This week, I decided to tackle all the contemporary books that I grabbed in sales and charity shopps over the summer and autumn. I admit for the most part I found them to be way too slow and full of characters I hated. However, every one I DNF was one off the tbr which has dropped to a much healthier 560 books to read. Last week it was at 603 so that's an improvement! I did find two books I enjoyed out of Contemporary Week-The Fault in our Stars and The Silver Linings Playbook, so it was worth it for that and a reduced tbr. I have a few more to tackle tonight and that will end my week. I am going to try and read a few historical fiction books next to reduce that shelf which has quite a few unread, before I go back to my beloved zombie books!
On the book buying and downloading side, I had a nice week! The books shown here in the downloads are a mixture of last week and this week and were all free or under £2. The paperbacks are from series I've started and enjoyed so I'm excited to have them. I had the fun of spending a few Amazon vouchers from trading the unwanted contemporary books so that was spent on zombies for next week's STS! I do like to plan ahead and I hate it when I just have a small haul!
