And I will tell you a bit about the how and why I added them to my shelves and why I wanted them in the first place.
Weekly Book Wrap-Up is a combination where I link up with Tynga and Kimberly and their blogs.
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 #45 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!
Sunday Post #2 is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is a weekly meme where I share with you what happened off the blog, what I could read during the past week and where I will share the news what is coming up on Gone With The Books for the week ahead if I can. I am not much of a planning blogger and mostly write and post my things on a day to day basis, so be patient with me here *smile*
Well, the past week was one where I had to proof to myself that I am a patient person. The plumber who was hired by my landlord to fix the broken faucet came and took a look at the problem. One look and I got told that I needed everything new and he would call as soon as he would have all the stuff needed and come again to repair my pipes. When I asked for a timeframe he said: “tomorrow between 8 am and 5 pm if a new faucet is in storage”. Apparently, they had none because the next day nothing happened. No plumber in sight. I was about to go out of the house to get at least some grocery shopping done when the phone rang and I got told that they now had it and the next day someone would come to repair it. The timeframe got a bit tighter foretold but I still had another day with waiting and where I didn´t achieve much more. My head was obviously confused about the “Don´t touch the faucet!” thing.
The fun part of all this: the plumber needed my help! Can you imagine? I actually was allowed to help him fix my kitchen sink *YAY* I´ve never done that before and it was very interesting and exciting to see how the old one got out (that sucker put up a fight!) and to finally be able to see the damage. I got told that this plumber had never seen a faucet like this one and that everything – the pipes, the faucet, and the entire kitchen sink – was installed in a very strange way. Obviously, my kitchen is not built like a standard kitchen but that I could have told him before *laugh*.
On the bookshelves happened a lot the past week! I bought some new books, got another one from a publisher and pre-ordered some for later in the year. And right before I posted this here I found some really great book deals that I ordered right away. But more about them next week.
Not as much as I would have liked (the broken faucet put a lot on hold) but good enough to share it. And I started being active in the reading challenge for Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman over at the Lovelybooks forum.
To get to the book info at Goodreads, just click the cover. Only Beautiful Lies isn´t listed at Goodreads yet (but I will change that as soon as possible), so no link behind that so far, sorry guys.
