#StackingtheShelves #34! Week ending 4-29! Blog updates and #Giveaways, too!

Thanks to our Sponsor, Tynga's Reviews!

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!

I'm also finding OTHER PLACES TO LINK UP TO AS WELL! I'm finding these places from other blogs, and they are GREAT ideas! The following NEW one is Talk of the Town where we can add ALL THINGS BOOKISH! Check it out!

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. Once at Tynga's Reviews, find HIS/HER POST and follow the Arrows TO READ the post, "Stacking the Shelves" meme, which is usually ALWAYS the first post on the LEFT of her blog. Click on the arrow! You'll get to see what he/she got, BUT, what I'm after to show you is to SCROLL DOWN FURTHER, and you'll see usually a VERY LARGE and LONG Linky-List of blogs GALORE!!! Blogs ADD their names to this list ALL DAY LONG!! I've been known to add mine close to midnight on Saturday! Visit a few blogs! You're now ADDICTED to Stacking the Shelves! (Sorry - not really!!! LOL!!!)

***GIVEAWAYS!!! ALWAYS CHECK THE LEFT SIDE COLUMN for the most recent GIVEAWAYS! (Please check the giveaway dates) There are 2 Giveaways going on NOW!

ALL the Giveaways I have on my blog each week will have ALL of the Giveaways posted right there! They are YOURS TO ENTER and I will have a FEW gently read print books I will be posting to give away in these hops! Check out the LEFT side column! 

I did not buy ONE book this week! Unbelievable!

Get ready for THIS TUESDAY, MAY 3rd! NEW RELEASE DAY GALORE! There are so MANY NEW RELEASES coming out, it's CRAZY! That many MORE titles for YOU to buy! 

For this upcoming week, I will have 3 NEW REVIEWS! 2 Reviews will be listed on Tuesday, May 3rd, their NEW release dates! I also have one more book back from the beginning of April's new releases back when I didn't have my NEW Kindle yet. I was stuck! I couldn't get Amazon's APP to download onto my computer, and I really think it has to do with the Windows 10 upgrade. I have a few books I need to finish reading, but one is Modern Girls and that review will post this upcoming week! Watch for it!

Thanks for stopping by again!

Liar, Liar (Book 4 of the Helen Grace series) by M J Arlidge - I LOVE this series of Thrillers! I've read the other three, and the publisher so kindly contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reading this one! Oh, yes, please!!! I am STOKED!!!
Releases June 7th, 2016

Behind Closed Doors by B A Paris (NEW author, NEW book for me! The publisher contacted me about this book, too! This MUST be good! Exciting!!!)
Releases August 9th, 2016

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by! I just realized I DID buy a few books this week after all! This is how I found out - and you should read this in case it happened to you . . . after I was done re-registering my Kindle Fire, I happened to see a few books I bought but forgot I bought them. I am NOT discounting those books, but with the number of books I have for review right now, I did not think I bought any! HA, HA! I should know better than that! LOL!!! I'll list those NEXT week for you! I got them on sale! That is always wonderful! One of the books is from the Kindle FIRST program. I'll have MORE to talk about next weekend! See you BEFORE then! Gotcha on that one!

I received an email from Amazon telling me Amazon did an UPDATE for the Kindle Fire tablets. "I might" have been affected by an error they had in their update which DEREGISTERS your Kindle FIRE only. I got the Fire out because as I read that email, my husband was on his way home from work. He is DEAD tired on Friday, and with working overtime, I KNEW he was looking forward to dropping dead on the couch with the Fire. Sure enough! Our Kindle FIRE DID get Deregistered.
If this happens to you, check the email box where your FIRE is registered to. There WILL be an email there explaining HOW TO RE-REGISTER YOUR FIRE - and it's EASY-PEASY TO RE-REGISTER IT! SO DON'T WORRY!!! Okay, YOU CAN BREATHE NOW!!! It managed to save ALL of his bookmarks and everything! So don't worry, you'll be fine in case that happens!
If ANY of you have had this happen and you did NOT get the email from Amazon, I will be MORE than happy to help you out, but know that those people who were affected, Amazon DID give you a $5 Amazon Gift Code good towards your next purchase! You may benefit MORE by contacting Amazon because I cannot give that to you, but if you STILL want to talk to me, I welcome your questions! You can reach me at laurieisreading at g mail dot com!

Happy Weekend Everyone!!! Enjoy it!!
Thanks for coming by!


  1. Hi Laurie, thanks for the shoutout for #TalkoftheTown

    I often find I've pre-ordered a Kindle and forgotten about it but am ecstatic when it drops onto my Kindle :)

    Have a great week. x

  2. I got the same email from Amazon. Thankfully, my kindle did not de-register. But it did remove some of my books. I had to download some of the books I was reading, which was only a minor inconvenience. Amazon seems to be making a lot more mistakes, lately. Growing pains?
