Stacking the Shelves: National Book Lovers Day

So I keep saying I’m not going to do Stacking the Shelves that often, and then I go and buy a bunch of books/comic books/graphic novels. I have a problem. Anyway, today was National Book Lovers Day, so you know I had to celebrate…by buying some books. I went to Barnes and Noble, which was having a Page to Screen event (aka giving away a bunch of free posters and such) and Comic Commander, the comic book shop closest to me. Here’s what I got!


The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco (SO EXCITED about this one); The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (also excited about this one. It’s been recommended to me by at least five different people)


Volume one of Chew; Issue one of Bodies and Terminal Hero; Issues one and two of Thomas Alsop (Yay for starting a few comics near the beginning!)

Happy National Book Lovers Day to all of you lovely bookish people. 🙂
