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

The weather has been mild, but that streak is about to end. By Tuesday, we will be back to minus double digits.

Waking up to -12 degrees Celsius (10 degrees Fahrenheit), and by Wednesday our nights will be twice as cold as that.

As you can see, some of the snow has melted.

"Shane" gifted me with more audiobooks through Audible:

The Autobiography of Andrew Carnegie by Andrew Carnegie

The Wisdom of Life by Arthur Schopenhauer

Thanks, Shane!

I won this paperback (my book of choice up to $5.00) in a giveaway hosted by Sandy @ Somewhere Only We Know for the 2016 Series Enders Reading Challenge - November Wrap-up:

Thanks again, Sandy!

I bought this hardcover at the dollar store for $3.00. I need to start on this series!

Shadow Play by Iris Johansen 
(Eve Duncan, Book #19)

Did you know that you can download FREE audiobooks with Penguin Random House's Volumes app? Here's what I picked up:

Eat It to Beat It! by David Zinczenko

Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
(Mr. Lemoncello's Library, Book #1)

  1. Wow! I may have to check out that Penguin Volume App. I bookmarked this for later to look at. I just finished The Woman in Cabin 10 and really liked it. Just starting The Widow by Fiona Barton. It's starting out good.

    1. Glad to hear that you enjoyed The Woman in Cabin 10. I loved it!! The Widow is on my library TBR. I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying it!

  2. Looks like some more deer visits as well! I think The Wrong Girl looks good.

    1. Yes, they do come around daily for a nosh :) I think The Wrong Girl sounds really good, too!

  3. Oh wow the suspense thrillers look good as done Born Survivors. I look forward to your thoughts!
