And now we return to our usual programming...Stacking the Shelves!

I've been quite spoiled the past three weeks and hope you've received some lovely goodies as well. No pics since it's mostly e-books and my phone's on the fritz. :S I'm pretty bummed about this since I wanted to share the lovely inscription C. E. Murphy put in the copy of MOUNTAIN ECHOES that I won from her during a Twitter contest. As always, an asterisk denotes an e-book. I went a bit e-book crazy this past week since Kobo was doing a contest and I got a bunch of 10%-30% off coupons.

Remember to add your links to the Mr. Linky at the end!

So, what did YOU add to your shelves this week?


Born and raised in the Toronto area, Jenn moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, eight years ago for school. She's still in school (thankfully on another degree!), now trapped in her dissertation. When she's not dissertating, which happens more often than it should, Jenn spends her time reading, watching movies, playing volleyball, travelling, and enjoying the local music scene. Her latest addictions: yoga and Almond Crunch cereal.
