STACKING THE SHELVES (58): THE GLASSES EDITION.


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews that showcases newly acquired books or goodies we bought, received or borrowed during the week.

After a month (this was September) of being almost blind because I couldn't wear my contact lenses straight for 8 hours at work, I needed to get glasses I could wear anytime, anywhere. My contacts are irritating my eyes and I get headaches so I have to remove them while at work. I almost fell twice while walking because I couldn't see where I was going. So, I spent my last pay (I quit my job) scouring optical stores for the frame that fits my huge face and I finally found the last piece! It was also on sale!! Then I went to National Bookstore again to buy these books for the Claudia Gray and Madeleine Roux Book Signing Event! (and that was October.)


BOUGHT: (All signed)
* Asylum (Asylum #1) by Madeleine Roux
* Sanctum (Asylum #2) by Madeleine Roux
* A Thousand Pieces of You (Firebird #1) by Claudia Gray

For some reason, I wasn't able to finish my coffee which was weird because I love frappes. Well, I alos spotted some awesome book tabs from Daiso, a Japanese store with cheap finds!


Thank you National Bookstore, Pacific Blue + Ideal Vision for my uber awesome glasses and Daiso!

What did you get this week?

  6. Whoa, that's so dangerous working while you couldn't see. Sucks about the contacts though. :( I really wanted to love A Thousand Pieces of You but I hated it, while everyone seems to love it so I guess it's just me, haha.

    Here's mine

  8. Ahh, I love getting books signed -- did you get to interact much with the authors? I don't know the authors -- are you a fan already?
