Too Many Books

So remember on my first giveaway post that I need to make room on my book shelves. This is why:
Those are all the books I haven't read yet. maybe my husband's right and I should stop acquiring books for a bit......yeah right. It's not like I buy them brand new. I've also been super lucky and have won a lot of them.

These are the books I won from Bookshipper in her amazing 14 Book Giveaway from Hachette Books. So cool!!!
And these are recent books I've gotten from the Mid-Manhattan Library Book Sale...if you live in the area check it out (75 cents for paper backs and 2 dollars for hardbacks):And these are some other miscellanous finds/wins. Anna is excited too:
I won Three Cups of Tea from Amanda at Click. The Good News

I won Snow Flower and the Secret Fan from Lisa at Books. Lists. Life

I won Queen of the Road from Julie at Booking Mama

I won The Richest Season from Becca at The Inside Cover


The other books are various ones I've picked up from used book stores, the free shelf in our laundry room, library sales, the antique store, etc.

I've decided to start giving away some books I've read to make more room. So thank you veryone who's entered my First Giveaway and there will definitely be more.


  1. Thanks for the heads up on Mid-Manhattan. I have to make it a point to pop over at lunch. Looks like you got some great reads!

  2. I need to do a post like this soon. My TBR is insane. I counted just the books on TOP of the shelves yesterday and it's more than I read most years!

  3. My book collection has gotten WAY out of control the past month. I went to a library sale and got almost 30 books AND won a 14 book drawing as well. Aren't those books fantastic [looking]? I can't help but just look at them every day when i get home from work. Now I just have to find the time to actually read them!!

  4. Congratulations on your wins and acquisitions!

  5. Oooh, I see you have some Nicholas Christopher in one of your loot piles. Will you let me know if you like The Beastiary? Years ago, I loved his book A Trip to The Stars and I remember liking Veronica quite a bit as well. I've had The Beastairy on my list for a while, but don't own it.

  6. Jill---I LOVE A Trip to the Stars. It's become one of my favorite books. I read Veronica a few years ago and when I found that and The Beastiary (which I've been wanting to read) I had to snag them. I'll let you know what I think!
