Stacking the Shelves

Standard

Hosted by Tynga’s reviews, Stacking the Shelves is a meme that shows off what we added to our shelves this week, whether it’s in eBook or physical format or whether it’s for review or another reason.

Bought

Wonder – R. J. Palacio

They Hosed Them Out – John Bede Cusack

The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald

The Catcher in the Rye – J. D. Salinger

Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck

 

The last three to replace copies previously owned. I have now given away about 8 copies of Of Mice and Men. One of my favourite reads, I press it upon anyone who shows interest and then buy another one!

They Hosed Them Out, was long out of print but recently re-issued by Wakefield Press Adelaide. As my dad was an air gunner and this is the epitome of stories about these brave men who had the highest fatality rate during the air battles of World War II, I was keen to buy it as soon as I knew it was available again. Now looking forward to the post bringing it!

Reviews

Stagefright – Carole Wilkinson

Australian Flags and Symbols – Karen Tayleur

Word Hunters The Curious Dictionary – Nick Earls and Terry Whidborne

To Get To Me – Eleanor Kerr

Reviewed for Random House

 

No time for the library but re-reading Pigeon Post – Arthur Ransome, kindly given to me by Barbara Braxton after she reviewed it!
