Stacking the Shelves (2)



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 a physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome I received last week with my first STS!  I found some new people to follow and added some books to my wishlist, as expected!

I have all library finds this week, all somewhat different than my usual entertainment reading tastes, though not outside my sphere of interests.

Here is what I've added in the last week:

From the Library:



I've actually already read and returned Genesis but it was new since last week so I included it anyway. It was a strange little story concerning artificial intelligence, I play to review it soon.

I probably won't actually read The Art of Graeme Base, I'm not much for bio's though I'm sure it is wonderful, so that's not a reflection on him!  I picked it up to get a look at all of his artwork which I think is gorgeous and whimsical!  I remember when The Eleventh Hour came out, I worked in a bookstore at the time (imagine that!) and just thought it was beautiful!

Quiet is about being introverted in an extroverted world, I'm interested to see what Cain has to say, being an introvert myself.

All About Emily appears to be another short foray into the concept of artificial intelligence.  I've read Willis' The Doomsday Book that deals with time travel and the bubonic plague and was very impressed with it, so intrigued by this novelette.

What fabulous finds do you add to your shelves this week?
