Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and 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!
I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.
Oh yes, I can see that we have the world´s biggest book fair going on right now and that new programs are coming up – like every year. During the past week, I almost found daily new books in my mailbox, my eMail account is stuffed with requests from publishers and on top of it all I, of course, couldn´t resist and bought some I wanted since a long time. Even an eBook is among them. Guess I will be quite busy over the next couple of weeks to read all of them – or at least some *laugh*

Gulph has found a passageway to the lost realm of Celesties, which lies beneath Idilliam. There he is reunited with the mother he has never known – but she can´t remember him.
