Piling Up on Friday - March 30

Piling Up on Friday is a weekly meme from Finding Your Gibbee. All you have to do is list the books you've added to your to read shelf in the last week.

It's been a while since I've had anything to put in this meme! I was managing to not acquire any new books for most of March, up until this week...

I requested Bandwidth by Angus Morrison on NetGalley. It's those featured title emails that keep me from exercising any kind of restraint... without me even visiting the site, it tells me what the best books are! I can't resist that!

Leaning Into the Corner: On Becoming a Different Kind of Woman by Shelley Whitney is the memoir of a trans* woman, talking about her experience with sex reassignment surgery and other aspects of changing her gender in society. I ordered this e-book because a friend of mine (who I think knows the author) sent out a Facebook message to all her friends recommending it.

And last but certainly not least, Catching Fire and Mockingjay! I read The Hunger Games last weekend, and I couldn't wait to get the rest of the trilogy!! (Also: Publishers who keep books in hardcover only for a very long time because they're selling well and you'll make gajillions of dollars by ripping off people who desperately want the books but would normally buy paperback: you are jerks. There, I said it.)
