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

I never thought I'd say this, but we've had temps ABOVE ZERO Celsius in JANUARY!!! January is typically our deep-freeze month, and we frequently go through the entire month of January not getting any warmer than -30 degrees Celsius. Last week, we had windchills that brought us down to -45 degrees Celsius and we broke a record in December for the 2nd snowiest December on record and the snowiest city across Canada! Now, we are breaking records for the warmest January days!

It is a misty, moisty that old nursery rhyme goes! Waking up to +1 degree Celsius, crazy!!! Hmmm, I can see the deer were destructive during the night, knocking down my tray feeder and the heated bird bath!

You can actually see my picnic table now!

Will the warm spell last? By Tuesday, the daytime high slips below zero again but still only single-digits so I can't complain. The coldest day is expected on Thursday, with a high of -6 degrees Celsius and a low of -15 degrees Celsius.

"Shane" gifted me with more audiobooks through Audible:

Nature by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanks, Shane!

I downloaded this FREEBIE from Audible:

I bought these at a "used" book sale (they look brand new) for $0.65 each! Yes, seriously!!

  1. Lots of good sounding goodies! Thank you for sharing them. Hope you enjoy them all. You can find my post for StS here if you'd like to stop by! I'm a blog follower.

  2. Our reading group is listening/reading Fireman Joe in February and I cannot wait. Look at all that snow. Hopefully things don't get too cold again! Have a wonderful week!

  3. It warmed up here too briefly and was warm enough to not need a coat! In January no less. Wish it would stay this way. :)

    Good night Smartphone looks great!

  4. Wow! It looks like the snow is about to melt where you are! Have you read Goodnight Ipad? It's a really hilarious book!
