Stacking the Shelves (5)

I'm so glad that my week was busy—it kept me from shopping for books. I know I'm on a book-buying moratorium, but I do have some money left from a birthday gift card. More important, I didn't get any books from the library. My TBR list is so long and at least if I avoid the library, I have fewer deadlines to worry about.

I did pick up a couple of freebies from Amazon that looked interesting. I really don't consider all the freebies as part of my TBR list. They're simply books that I might read if the mood strikes me. Most of the time the freebie is the first of a series, so if I start hearing good things about the series, I may pull out the freebie and sample it for myself. But I really don't pay them much attention overall.

I did, however, pick up two new books at NetGalley. Tachyon Publication approved my request to review Yesterday's Kin by Nancy Kress. The publication date was 9 September, so this is moving up very close to the top of my TBR list. The other book I received is The Galaxy Game by Karen Lord, courtesy of Del Rey Spectra.

So how about you? Did you get any new books this week? You're invited to join the fun at Stacking the Shelves. According to the reviewers at Tynga's Reviews who host the meme:

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
