Thanks to our Sponsor ?????????
First, let's find out HOW Stacking the Shelves works!
Hello everyone! It's that time of week again, that time to do an awesome "SHOW AND TELL" of the books I have been given, from authors, from publishers, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, the library, a yard sale, or some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! This is one of MY favorite posts to write!!
I also use THIS POST EACH WEEK to do somewhat of a wrap-up AND to post my NEW REVIEWS, NEW GIVEAWAYS, and whatever else I should bring to your attention!
My intention for writing the following is NOT to be rude, but in being HONEST about this weekly Post, Stacking the Shelves. I'm just a little tired of the LINKY link-up NOT being available to be able to list my blog. THEY ARE the Hosting blog, and if they want that and want hundreds of blogs to RELY on them, then they need to be reliable. The following is what happens at least once per month, or so it seems. Thank you.
The following information in the next paragraph is FALSE for this week and several others as well. This so-called "Sponsoring blog" has NOT been responsible enough again this week of June 4th to at least post the LINKY link-up for blogs that participate and look forward to Stacking the Shelves.
From what I can tell, there are 3 people who write that blog, and it seems the ONLY PERSON out of the three who are responsible for that blog and who writes a post for the WEEKLY Stacking the Shelves, usually the ONLY person who DOES POST THE LINKY LINK-UP IS ROBERT, so THANK YOU to ROBERT! We wish you could be posting this post EVERY WEEK!
It is wrong when you are a blog that is NOT responsible enough to list something as important as this weekly LINKY Link-up that generally has over 200 PLUS OTHER BLOGS THAT LOOK FOWARD to linking up THEIR BLOGS ON THE LIST, this so-called SPONSOR FOR THIS PARTICULAR LINK-UP tends to leave it unattended!
So, please disregard what I have written in this following paragraph FOR THIS WEEK AND ANY AND ALL FUTURE WEEKENDS WHERE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE LINK-UP. I WILL BE SURE TO INFORM YOU and I have taken their link OFF this post since the link-up is NOT THERE.
After you are done reading HERE, click on the Sponsor's name up above to see THEIR post for Stacking the Shelves, too! You'll see a "CONTINUE READING" in the lower RIGHT corner, click on it and continue reading! Scroll further down and you'll see they have a link-up with usually OVER 200 or MORE other blogs that also participate and do THIS SAME POST! It's a GREAT way to see some AMAZING BOOKS!!!
IF ANYONE KNOWS OF A MORE RELIABLE BLOG THAT PRACTICES THIS TYPE OF POST OR EVEN A DIFFERENTLY NAMED MEME AS A WEEKLY LINK-UP EVEN SIMILAR TO THIS ONE BUT IS MORE RESPONSIBLE AND MAKES SURE TO POST THE LINKY LINK-UP EVEN IF THEY HAVE NO NEW BOOKS, AND IT IS ALWAYS POSTED EACH WEEK NO MATTER WHAT, THEN PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHO THAT MAY BE! I WILL CONSIDER CHANGING. THANK YOU!
The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out! I still plan on joining in on other link-ups, too, I just haven't had the chance to do it all yet! I'll get there!!
I hope you are all having a WONDERFUL weekend! I have been hit with ANOTHER migraine! What the heck?? I have to get these checked out, but I have tried in the past, back about helf my life ago, and they could NEVER find out why back then without thousands of dollars worth of testing. Probably still the same today. We'll see.
Sunday - the NASCAR race!! I LOVE NASCAR RACING! How about you? (WHO would think Miss Girly-Girl of ALL here would LOVE NASCAR??? I NEVER would have thought this would happen in my lifetime!! Blame my husband! When we dated I got into watching the races just so I could be with him! LOL! Well, that resulted in a TRUE FAN!!! You'll see me tweeting a lot on Race Day's about Nascar and the drivers! Dale Jr is my FAVE!!! Always has been, always will be! If YOU are a NASCAR fan, let me know down below!
This Sunday, the 5th, we are in the Pocono's!!! Unfortunately, the weather report does NOT sound good. Thunderstorms ALL day, some severe - BUMMER!!! We'll have to wait and see!
#GIVEAWAYS - WHENEVER you are here, ALWAYS look in the LEFT SIDE CORNER!!! I often have Giveaways, so I put ALL #GIVEAWAYS IN AN EASY AREA FOR YOU TO FIND THEM!

One is a Rafflecopter Giveaway Form for a CHANNCE TO WIN $250 CASH!!! Oooooo!!!! The other one is a Blog Hop Giveaway! That almost gives you MORE chances to WIN books!!! Click on the photo for each!
