Book Haul #106, Or The One Where I Burnt My Foot...

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly event hosted on Tynga's Reviews where we can share what new books we've picked up this past week be they bought, borrowed or downloaded. There are also lots of other 'book haul' memes out there for you to choose from!

I'm a day behind this week thanks to the saga of the foot! It started with a blister and ended with a two inch burn caused by antiseptic cream... Turns out I've developed an allergy to Germolene antiseptic cream so instead of helping the blister I got (after wearing old shoes!) I now have a hideously huge burn and can't wear anything on my feet for at least another four days. And the pain is unbelievable!

Obviously I need to cheer myself up so I did indeed go book buying mad. Well, a little bit mad! I decided to treat myself to a few of the new Penguin 80th Little Black Classics (if you could say ten is a few) and I bought two of the UK World Book Day books that I wanted.

  1. Great haul! I haven't read any of Charlaine Harris' books recently but I loved the ones I read a while back :) I hope you have a lovely week and enjoy your new reads!

  2. Auch! That sounds really painful! I'm glad to see that you went for the tried and tested method of therapy-book splurge!!! There is very little that a book splurge can't, just don't drop the box on your foot...

  3. Awesome stack this week! Check out my STS?

  4. Oh, no! Your poor foot! I hope it's better soon. At least you have an excuse to sit and read. Books make everything feel better, too. Nice haul, btw! I hope you enjoy them all, feel better!!
