Stacking The Shelves and Sunday Post

This meme is hosted by Tynga over at Team Tynga's Reviews, which she describes as follows:
"Stacking The Shelves is all about the books we are adding to our shelves each week, sharing with you our excitement for our newest titles and maybe have you discover a new book in the process!"

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog and showcase books and things we have received. Share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. See rules here: Sunday Post Meme

We got another dump of snow on Monday night, and it was light and fluffy but deep. It's easy to shovel, but it won't stay put. Our winds gusted to 90 km/hr, and then our temps dropped to -45 degrees Celsius (that's -49 degrees Fahrenheit) with the windchill and there was ZERO visibility on Thursday. Here's what it looked like on Tuesday morning with the fresh fluffy snow:

 That's my picnic table buried under there. You can't even see the bench anymore!

Now we are in a warm-up! It's currently -15 degrees Celsius (that's 5 degrees Fahrenheit), and we are supposed to reach +1 degree Celsius by Thursday. Isn't that crazy?! But you realize what that means? Yes, more snow! Another 20 cm is expected next weekend.

I have added a TON of audiobooks to my TBR pile, and most of them were free!

"Shane" gifted me with more audiobooks through Audible:

The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles

The Autobiography of Charles Darwin by Charles Darwin

Thanks, Shane!

This was one of Audible's Daily Deals this week, and it's been on my Wishlist and I couldn't pass it up for only $2.95:

Into the Light by Aleatha Romig
(The Light, Book #1)

These were FREEBIES that I found on Audible:

(Simon Serrailler, Book #8.5)

Lock and Key: The Gadwall Incident by Ridley Pearson
(Lock and Key, Book #2)

(The Chronicles of St. Mary's, Book #6.5)

Did you know that you can get FREE audiobooks on Penguin Random House's website when you sign up for their newsletter? Click HERE, and then click on each of the links at the top (Fitness, Crafter, Family Travel, Business Traveler, Tech & Sci-fi, and Gardener & Cook). Scroll down to the bottom of each page and sign up for the newsletter, and then you will receive a download link for a free audiobook! The only link that didn't have an audiobook was Business Traveler, but the offerings change periodically and I've gotten audiobooks here more than once. Here are the ones that I picked up:

(Stone Barrington, Book #6)

(Dash & Lily, Book #1)

(The Original Shannara Trilogy, Book #1)

(The School of Essential Ingredients, Book #2)

I received this lovely surprise in my mailbox:

Distress Signals by Catherine Ryan Howard

Thanks again, Blackstone Audio! I can't wait to listen to it!!

Recap: Last Week On The Blog


  1. Wow! That's a lot of interesting books you got! I really need to read White Fang someday!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

    1. I read White Fang when I was young, but not as an adult. I loved that one.

  2. I always think we have rough winters until I see what Canadians go through! Hope the weather eases off a bit! Thanks for the heads up on the audiobooks/ newsletter-Dash & Lily is one I wanted to read, and distress Signals looks great!

    1. Me too, Greg. I meant to read Dash & Lily during Christmas Holidays, but I didn't manage to squeeze it in.
