This Week in Books #19

3 August, 2013


It’s been another awesome week in books for me.  I got a lot of upcoming Fall 2013 titles and I can’t wait to dive into them.  I’ve already started reading a few of them 😉  I couldn’t help myself.  Anyway, on to the books.

This Week In Books #19.2

I also hit up Chapters and picked up some of those notebooks from the new Poppin’ range.  I also picked up two new agendas.  One for my desk and a smaller one to carry around in my purse.

This Week In Books #19.3

Office supplies galore.  I swear I only went in for one set of markers and this is what I came out with.  I bought a bunch of new office supplies.  They are pretty much duplicates for stuff I have already bought (my office has no budget so I tend to pick up my own office supplies).  Picked up duplicates so I don’t have to carry them back and forth between work and home.

Random Haul

Meet my new camera.  I picked up a new Canon Digital Rebel T5i.  It replaces my original Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and I am loving it.  Not pictured is the MePhoto tripod or the new camera bag I also picked up.  I’ve been getting used to it and taking photos of everything.

Anyway, leave me a comment so I can stop by your blog to see what you picked up this week.

      Hi Pam,

      I’ve had to tell myself not to read Panic just yet, even though I really want to.

      Must get through other stuff in my TBR pile first!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Stationary FTW! I have a bit of a stationary problem. It seems like I am always picking up some. I just love it!

      I love Edelweiss and NetGalley. I much prefer digital galleys to the hardcopies. It also doesn’t hurt to be on a few auto-approve lists!

      It’s always fun getting new books. The downside is knowing where to start in making a dent in the reading pile!

    Excuse me while I drool over your new camera.
    Awesome haul. There are so many fantastic books up on NetGalley and Eidelweiss right now, I’m finding it hard to have any control! I hope you enjoy all your new goodies. :-)

      Lol. I am loving my new camera. I am kicking myself that I waited so long to get a new one.

      I am going to try to stay away from NetGalley and Edelweiss, but that is easier said than done.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Darn it! You all have the good stuff. Cries with longing. I really wanted The Broken Stars, Panic, and the Coldest Girl in town but luck is evading me. Need to work hard on my blog so I can get all these kind of goodies.

    Excellent haul!

      Trust me, it all comes with time and patience! When I first started, I didn’t really get approved for much. Consistency is key!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    You got a lot of great eArcs here! I wish I could read the Coldest Girl in Coldtown, but I did get These Broken Stars. Pretty sharpie colors! Randon yes, but I love sharpies, and other colorful office supplies. Happy Reading!
    Here are my newest additions.
