Piling Up on Friday - May 25

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 just so happens that I was on vacation for the past week! I just got back this morning. So, since I was on vacation, I allowed myself a slightly higher book buying allowance... So these are the books I bought while I was in Toronto:

 I got Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today's Feminism, edited by Daisy Hernandez and Bushra Rehman, at the Toronto Women's Bookstore. Oh my goodness, I could have shopped forever in that bookstore! It was hard to leave with just one book!
Gwynne Dyer once spoke at my university, and I really like his bluntness. He's amazingly pessimistic. Anywho, apparently in this book he's less pessimistic! So this I've got to see. But seriously, this is a guy who knows what's going on. I'm looking forward to reading this one.
I've been vaguely interested in learning about sacred geometry ever since I read The Druidry Handbook, and then I found this brief guide to it for cheap at a used book store. Yay!
I bought the second book in this trilogy ages ago, and then was never able to find the first book, Hammerfall. I finally found it!

And then of course, I had to do my usual R.L. Stine search! Amazingly, I never saw a single Goosebumps or Fear Street book anywhere! I thought that was really weird. But I did find these two Mostly Ghostly books.


  1. Don't you just love finding so many treasures!

    1. I do! It was awesome to have a whole new set of book stores to explore!
