I thought that I could do another change here since I did a lot of changes lately.
From today on I will link this post also with Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer and her Sunday Post #1. I am playing since quite some time now with the idea to do it. The rest will stay the same, don´t worry. I´ll keep you posted on what is going on with my bookshelves and the little stories about them.
Stacking The Shelves #44 is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews. A meme that 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 know, I know it was very quiet over the past week here on my blog. And I have a very bad conscience that nothing happened here over the past few days. Sorry for that. The reason is that I was kind of knocked out. No drive to do anything but sleep, drink lots of water and tea and nothing else. I couldn´t get myself to do the household or write a review not to mention get some posts done for the blog or schedule one. I was totally out of my usual routine and besides reading some books and watching a bit TV I, frankly said, did not much more.
And the fact that a few nights ago some tubes right underneath my kitchen sink broke and gave me one hell of a night (I discovered it way past midnight when I got home) gave me the rest. I had to get everything dry, had to do that without making any noise since in Germany exists a rule called "night rest" that starts at 10 pm and runs until 6 am the next morning. That rule forbids any loud noise during the night (I am living in an old house where you can hear everything) and I had to find the damn main tube where I could turn off the water so that nothing more would come out and give me another hard time. You can probably imagine that I didn´t need anything else happen that night.
But despite that, I was actually a pretty good girl the past week. I DIDN`T BUY ONE SINGLE BOOK! Instead, I got some reviewer´s copies.
I was asked a while ago if there was a special reason why I didn´t say thank you to the publishers I got my RC´s from. Well, since I am getting most of them from German publishers, the answer is simple: They don´t want to let others know, that they were sending out an RC. Until a few years back, they wanted to be named and thanked for when they gave a book as an RC to a blog or literature portal. That has changed a few years ago when they had to discover that some blog owners were only asking for an RC but didn´t do the job right by not reading the entire book and giving them poor ratings or by not reviewing them at all.
