Estelle’s Shelve It >> March 17, 2013

weekly feature to share the books magan and estelle are adding to their bookshelves each week

Happy Sunday friends! It’s St. Patrick’s Day… have you had green beer today? We aren’t much for celebrating the holiday but that’s okay… it’s been a nice productive weekend and I’m enjoying a River Horse American Amber Ale instead of something green.

It’s been kind of a slow week in the book collecting world for me. If you remember, I’ve taken an oath not to buy books until the end of the month. But I’m thinking it might continue a little bit past that because I’ve been eyeing my bookshelves and the new / unread book pile is still a bit too overwhelming.

But the good news is… I’m going on a trip next week and have already thrown my trusty books into a bag and I will hopefully make a small dent in that very scary pile of books I have spent money on but forgotten about. In other exciting news, … the New York Teen Author Festival kicks off tomorrow (March 18) and I’m psyched! If any of you are there, please say hi!

Anyway, there were still some very nice goodies in my mailbox this week:

Estelle Shelve It March 17 2013

Anna from Anna Reads sent me her copy of The Trouble with Flirting by Claire LaZebrik!

And Quinn from Quinn’s Book Nook surprised me with this cute notebook, bookmark, and four-leaf clover kit to say thanks for me sending her a book. How sweet was that? I am IN LOVE with this notebook.

Thanks Quinn + Anna!

In case you missed it, here’s what happened at RBR in the past few days:

Attention, Attention: Audrey, Wait!
A review of First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky
A review of The Ruby Oliver Series by E. Lockhart
A PMS Survival Kit from Magan
A review of This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

Reading anything awesome? Please share! Thanks for stopping in this week!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - So glad you liked the notebook. I really need to stop buying books for a little while, too. Just to knock a few books off my own-but-haven’t-read pile. I might try to not buy books for a month, except for signings. Maybe. Still haven’t quite committed, though 🙂

I definitely want to read The Trouble with Flirting. I liked Epic Fail – it was super cute.

Have a nice vacation! Happy reading 🙂
