Stacking the Shelves #5: Authors for Indies Edition

IMG_0188 copy

Today is a special edition of Stacking the Shelves! Last weekend I spent my Saturday visiting my favorite independent bookstore in celebration of Authors for Indies Day. What is Authors for Indies Day you ask? It is a special day when authors show their love and appreciation for independent bookstores (indies) by volunteering as guest booksellers for one day. As a customer you have the opportunity to meet local authors and they share with you their favorite book recommendations, and maybe you could share your recommendations with them too, or you could buy a book or two and get to know your neighborhood bookstore.

Authors are doing this to raise awareness of indie bookstores as they are very important in our community. So if you missed Authors for Indies this year, make sure to follow @Authors4Indies on Twitter so you don’t miss out next year and show your local bookstore a little love!Read More »

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing your books that you added whether it’s physical or virtual (ebooks). This includes books that you bought physically or online, borrowed, reviewed, and received as gifts! This weekend I decided to take a trip to the local library, something that I haven’t done in a long time especially when I’m so bad at finishing and returning books before their due date.

In my last post, I mentioned how I was going to be more self-conscious with book buying after finding out that I spent $57 last month. I can’t afford to spend too much or else I’ll just end up with too many unread books, and I have enough of those in my bookcase. Just watching my growing pile of unread books really stresses me out, I’ve got a few books that I’ve been dusting off since two years ago and are still left unopened. So I’m starting a ritual where I’m buying books that are not only cheap, but I plan on reading for certainty, compared to books that I think I might read one day, when they will most likely be left forgotten.Read More »

Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing your books that you added whether it’s physical or virtual (ebooks). This includes books that you bought physically or online, borrowed, reviewed, and received as gifts! This week I bought some exciting new titles, and yesterday was the best day yet as I went to one of my favorite bookstores in Vancouver. The Book Warehouse at West Broadway is best known for selling books at a bargain price and many of the titles they carry are cheaper compared to Chapters Indigo. I spent more time at Book Warehouse than I expected after coming across books that were on my TBR for a while and were on sale for $10! But I was strapped for cash so I narrowed my purchase down to two. I already spent $40 last week at Chapters Indigo so I didn’t want to go over my book budget for this month.Read More »

I’m going to try out new things for my blog, so I came across Stacking the Shelves. Stacking the Shelves is all about sharing your books that you added whether it’s physical or virtual (ebooks). This includes books that you bought physically or online, borrowed, reviewed, and received as gifts! If you like hoarding books as much as I do, then this is a great way to share with everyone any new additions to your shelves because let’s face it, who has recently bought a book but realized how long it took for you to actually pick it up and start reading it? This is a great way to show your enthusiasm for exciting titles!Read More »
