#StackingtheShelves #26! Plus blog updates and MORE!

Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews!

Wow! What an amazing week! It was GREAT! I got a LOT of new reviews written, and that felt SOOOOO GOOD!!! I can't tell you how GREAT it truly feels! It felt amazing to actually WRITE them! To those of you who I did not return your messages, email or other social media places, I'm sorry, but I was doing what a real book blog does! I read and wrote reviews! So that is why I did not, or could not get back to you. I usually answer ALL my messages ASAP, but I took the time TO BLOG! It felt like it did when my blog was brand new and there not ALL I relied on was email and I didn't have so many messages from so MANY different places like I usually do to answer from EVERYWHERE, EVERYWHERE I went on the internet!! I'll talk more about that for tomorrow's post. Social Media.
I had a printer die on me this week! NO!!! It was the one attached to this computer. I found one online at Best Buy and my hubby went to go pick it up, and now that I FINALLY got it installed, ALL thanks go to The Geek Squad for that! I TRULY could NOT compute without The Geek Squad! I mean it from the bottom of my heart! They help me when my computer goes haywire, when it decides to update, but NOT in a good way, but screws EVERYTHING in my computer up! When that happens I grab the phone and called THE GEEK SQUAD!!!
Do any of you have the Geek Squad? I NEED them! Let me know how you fix your computer when it goofs up! The Geek Squad is ONLY $100 for 2 computers, virus coverage, computer tune-up, and so MUCH MORE! Plus, plus, plus, THEY TALK TO YOU!!! THEY FIX YOUR COMPUTER!!!  They ROCK!!!
Okay - let's get to the books!

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, I bought, borrowed, or received somehow, some way this past week! I LOVE showing books off like this! Especially when the books have AWESOME COVERS!! That is MY favorite part!!
With THIS POST I am often always finding MORE amazing books and adding them to my TBR list! That list is longer than my life already, but that's okay! What's life without a list with reading on it longer than my life? There is NOT ONE!!! I also LOVE to see other books and I like to look for trends! How do I do that? When I see the same book on other blogs quite often, I KNOW that book HAS TO BE GREAT!! That's the BEST way to spot an amazing book!

GOODREADS: Make sure to ADD any books you find you want to read to your TO BE READ list on your Goodreads page! Why? Goodreads will send you a NOTICE telling you "a book on your To Be Read list" is in a Giveaway" . . . for however long! Nice, eh . . . ? Oh, yes!!! You get to go over to Goodreads and ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!
Want to see MORE books than just mine each week? Okay! Awesome!! Many of you who do not go to the Sponsor's blog on Saturday's are missing out and may not know you really should go there to do the following:
When you are done here, go up to the top of this post where I thank the Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews (that is the Sponsor) you really w and click on that sponsor's name.

    1. Hi Karen,
      I had to remove your Comment because it was "advertising". I do NOT SUPPORT FREE ADVERTISING on my blog because "I" do NOT advertise ANYTHING that earns monies on my blog. Even though you will see 2 or 3 ads from Google on my blog, I do NOT make ANY income from those ads. I am NOT signed up to earn income monies from those ads.
      I thought I at least owed it to you to let you know why I deleted your ad for your video game.
      Another reason I deleted the video game ad is that is what it is. I don't play video games, never have, and I don't know what your video game has in it. Some video games can be VERY graphic and I do NOT want that on my blog.
      Please respect my wishes from here on out and do NOT advertise ANYTHING on this blog again.
      I know it's hard and you look for places to advertise as MUCH as you can because long ago I used to do it, too, back when I was able to work and able to do the things you are doing. I wish you the BEST!!! I really do!
      Thank you!!

  2. I am looking forward to the Nora Roberts book - hope you enjoy it! Nice haul!

    My StS:

  3. I am very interested in the Cleopatra book. I will have to find in on Amazon, perhaps? I also love anything related to ancient Egypt. I hope it is good. Congrats on getting so many reviews done. It does feel so good when you can write a bunch of posts and have them all scheduled up to go up automatically! Have a wonderful week of reading.

  4. Lots of good looking books. That Cleopatra one piques my interest; I love history and she is a fascinating subject. Hope they're all good! Here's ours: Here's ours: Bibliojunkies Happy reading! ~ Bel
