*Stacking the Shelves* 24 June 2017

(Titles link to Amazon via Amazon Affiliate links)

Stacking The Shelves is a feature/weekly meme created by Tynga’s Reviews in which you share the books you are adding to your shelves, both physical and virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical stores or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Now, I already have a monthly post I do featuring the books I get in the mail (and it's a lot because I have a serious Goodreads First Reads giveaway addiction), and I'm going to try to start posting my monthly Read-A-Thon posts again too (even if none of the Platypires will be joining me), which will cover the books I receive through Netgalley. But I also go to my thrift store at least once a week, and often leave with a bag full of books. It's such a common occurrence that I'm known as The Book Lady to the frequent volunteers (and I suspect that they've started scheduling their $1 bag of books sales for Thursdays simply because that is the day I usually visit.) So my Stacking the Shelves posts are going to focus on my thrift store hauls, because this is my blog and I do what I want. 

On that note, here are the books I picked up this week.

Peterson Field Guide: Stars and Planets by Jay M. Pasachoff and Donald H. Menzel - This will be a great book to have if one of my children shows a fascination for astronomy. 
The Thief Taker by Janet Gleeson - Historical fiction, I think based on the cover. I like historical fiction, which is something you should know about me by now.
Eva Braun: Life with Hitler by Heike B. Gortemaker - I have always been fascinated by WWII and the Holocaust, so all I needed to see to know I wanted this book was Eva Braun. While I was perusing the rest of the books at the thrift store, another patron even asked if she could take a picture of this book so she could remember the title to look up (and presumably buy) later.
Sitting Bull by Peter and Connie Roop - This is a book from the In Their Own Words series, and I figure it could be an interesting way for the kids to learn about the life of Sitting Bull.
Sojourner Truth by Peter and Connie Roop - This is another book from the In Their Own Words series.
Lewis and Clark by George Sullivan - Yet another book from the In Their Own Words series. 
Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne - My daughter asked if we could get this Winnie the Pooh book "because it has paper in it." I don't let them buy board books at the thrift store anymore because we already have a lot and they can both read now. 
Diego Saves a Butterfly by Lara Bergen - This is a Go Diego Go beginner reader.
Toy to Toy by Tennant Redbank - A Toy Story 3 beginner reader.
The Kane Chronicles Survival Guide by Rick Riordan - I own at least one of the Kane Chronicles books, so I reckon this is a good addition to my collection.
Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Ultimate Guide by M.J. Knight (I guess) - I own several of the Percy Jackson books, so I needed this one.
Mechanica by Betsy Cornwell - I fell in love with the cover of this book. I believe it's steampunk based on the cover. It just looks really intriguing to me.

And that's all the books that I picked up at my thrift store this week. This haul cost me a whopping $4.50 (almost broke the bank it did). 

What books did you add to your shelves this week? - Katie
