Stacking the Shelves #1

Saturday, May 9, 2015

Stacking the Shelves is a book haul meme by Tynga's Reviews that showcases books you have bought, borrowed, or received for review.

Hey guys, here is the first post of Stacking the Shelves on my blog. Actually been doing a lot of first posts this week. Woo making an effort at semi-consistency! Last weekend I went on a field trip with my Shakespeare class to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. The plays were fantastic but the most fun was being able to hang out with my English major friends. We went shopping, walked around town, went to bars, ate good food, talked a lot on the bus ride. It was a blast. This week was dead week (the week before finals), and I spent a lot of time researching for a final paper and finishing stuff up for work. Also I have been trying to squeeze in some last good times my friends before I graduate next week. Even though I am pretty psyched about the next phase of my life, I am going to miss my friends here. Well, enough sentiment! Bring on the books from the last two weeks!

On May 2nd, it was the Free Comic Book Day! Yet sadly, I wasn't able to make it to the comic book shop because I had a crazy day of work and then going on a field trip to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. So I was pretty bummed about that because who doesn't love free comics. But luckily while I was in Ashland the next day, I stumbled on a comic shop and got some free comics that they still had leftover! And I may have grabbed a few more non-free ones too...
