Today I’m sharing the books I bought, acquired or borrowed this week for Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I bought My Life as a Rat by Joyce Carol Oates because it was chosen for my work book club. It’s a contemporary drama that sounds like it will be far out of my comfort zone. I’m interested to see what I’ll make of it.
Gifts & Giveaways
I went through an old box of books from my husband’s childhood and discovered some Roald Dahl classics to add to our collection. I claimed a pristine copy of The BFG (mine is worn and battered), James and the Giant Peach, Danny Champion of the World, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Going Solo, Dahl’s autobiography. I’m looking forward to reading a few of these with my daughter.
I also downloaded The Future Collection by Beth Revis using a free coupon from her email newsletter. It features 6 sci-fi short stories, which sound interesting.
