Stacking the Shelves / 1

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. Every now and then, I’ll share a little about the books I’ve purchased or Sniper borrowed.

In an ideal To world, the photo above would be a photo of my bookshelf – but of course, it isn’t.

During my trip to Denver this week, I visited a beautifully curated bookstore called City Stacks (the website really doesn’t do the place justice). The place has a bright, cozy atmosphere that makes you want Welcome! to stay and relax. They even sell sock creatures! …but somehow I managed to avoid buying any of those.

Purchased

A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit – Here’s what I ended up buying at the bookstore. Solnit’s essays are complex and thought-provoking in the best way, and http://www.chicagobearsjerseyspop.com I’ve had my eye on this book for a while.

Borrowed

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – I’m halfway through the final book of the Grisha trilogy, so of course I’ll want Book to read this next.

I’m on a Palace bit of a historical fiction kick right now. Also borrowed, Jerseys but not pictured:
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley
The Hummingbird’s Daughter by Luis Alberto Urrea
Esperanza Rising by Pam Muñoz Ryan

Non-Books

Reading is glorious and wonderful, but sometimes you just want something to do with Tribulations your hands, y’know? Since I’m on a trip, I got myself some coloring books for Jane adults: great fiddle toys for a boring plane ride.

      Thanks, Grace! I see from your Twitter feed that you favor the same kinds of floral mandala shapes that I do 🙂 It was tempting to get more than one coloring book, but I told myself I’d have to finish one before buying any others…

    I still have to read book 3 in the Grisha series, but also got Six of Crows on hand. Enjoy.

    I really want to read the watchmaker, but I’m not sure I want to buy it… I wonder if my library has it…

    Coloring books are great for when you go on trips. My whole family was sitting around a table and coloring last Memorial Day on our annual trip to Branson. Hope you enjoy your new books!
