*Stacking the Shelves* 3 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.

Robot Dreams by Isaac Asimov - I basically grew up reading Asimov from my parents personal library, so finding a book to add to my collection was nice. 
The Duck Commander Family by Willie & Korie Robertson - There's a small part of me that is reality tv obsessed, and while I've never watched Duck Dynasty, I pretty much get the gist, and the gist is that it's reality tv on par with Keeping up with the Kardashians. 
Schindler's Legacy edited by Elinor J. Brecher - Stories of Holocaust survivors are right up my alley.
Kingdom Keepers Power Play by Ridley Pearson - I have book 1 in this series, and now I have book just a few more to go.
Magical Thinking by Augusten Burroughs - I've heard really good things about Burroughs writing, and while I really want to read Running With Scissors, there's a good chance I'll want to read this too afterwards, so it was a good find.
America: A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction by Jon Stewart - This book has been on my wishlist for a few years. I was super stoked when I saw it on the shelves.
I Love Hugs by QEB Publishing - My daughter asked if we could get this book, and I pretty much never say no to the kids picking out new books (unless they're board books because we own too many of those already and my kids are just about too old for them now.)

So that's all the books I picked up this week, and I didn't catch a bag of books sale, so this haul cost me $2.25 (which is still a huge bargain, but $1.25 more than it would have cost with a bag of books sale).

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