The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and it’s a chance to showcase new books and re-cap your week of blogging.
I finally broke down and spent my $25 Amazon gift card because there were just too many great Kindle deals I couldn’t pass up. We also had a couple of fantastic boxes of ARCs come in to the library from our distributor, Baker and Taylor. So while it looks like I went bonkers this week, it’s only because this all happened in the same week.
I was talking to my blogging friend Christy this weekend about review books. Is it just me or are there just not that many out there right now? Maybe I’m just getting too picky…
I’ve given up on going to ALA this year (mostly) and I’m now looking at BEA. But holy cow!!! Yeah the airfare is cheap from DTW but did you see those hotel room prices?!?!?! YIKES! I might have to start being nice and see if someone will let me pay to sleep in a sleeping bag on the floor of their room!!!!

- There’s a brand new feature to Book Blogging.net – it’s a Book Trading System. I haven’t played around in it yet but ever since Goodreads dumped theirs, I’ve been sorely missing a way to unload my books and get something for them. Now, if I could only find a way to unload my hub’s books!!! I know, I know, I should donate them to my library…

Here’s where I go a little nuts but you’ll see there are some good deals!

These were books that I’ve wanted for a while and just couldn’t bring myself to spend big bucks for an ebook. Turns out I already owned the physical copy of Up To Me so I might put that one up on the Book Trading system 😀
Have I ever mentioned how much I’m hating on right now??? It’s going to be a while before I do another haul post with so many books… GRRRRRRR…
Oh, by the way, what did you get this week???
