A Rare Mid-Week Shelve It (Plus Giveaway!)

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

I’m sorry to tell you that it’s not Sunday. But yesterday I was all dressed up and not post-gym gross for once so I decided to clean off my “kitchen” table (it’s in the living room, if I’m honest) and share with you what I’ve been buying lately: the results of my book buying ban, some great mail thanks to some awesome people, and a few stragglers I picked up today!

Plus I talk about my problems with reading hardcovers over eBooks during the week. I’ll be curious to hear you guys handle this VERYSERIOUS problem. 🙂

Hope you enjoy this week’s Shelve It! (I just read this is our 60th video on YouTube… how is that possible?!)

Estelle + Magan: A Joint Shelve It from Texas!

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

These last few days, we’ve been together, reunited in Texas. Holy crap, you guys! It’s been amazing. But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. Estelle left yesterday afternoon to head back to NYC and Magan spent the remainder of the day crying. Every time we see each other, we wish we lived closer to one another.

We made a joint Shelve It our first evening together. Estelle brought a few books for Magan to read and over the last few weeks, Magan’s gotten a few new ones in the mail. Enjoy!

Huge THANK YOUS to Stasia Ward Kehoe for Runt and All the Truth That’s in Me
and Jess from Gone With the Words for Grasshopper Jungle!

And, of course, stay tuned for more Shelve Its from us because we couldn’t avoid going to a bookstore.
Kind of inevitable, right? Estelle went home with as many books as she brought to Texas!

Happy Wednesday, friends! Thanks for checking out our Shelve It post!
