Last Ten Books Acquired

Today’s topic asks us what are the last ten books that came into our possession, through any possible means of acquisition (bought, borrowed, received for review, etc). Now, I’m a prodigious library-user, and the sort of reader who will borrow several dozen books for preview and then return them unread if they don’t make the cut. I’m not going to count those books toward this post. Below are my last ten acquired books that either made the cut and I finished, or I have waiting to try in my audio queue. From most recently acquired and then on back:

The Underground Girls of Kabul by Jenny Nordberg (audio) – via library on 7/10 – in queue
The Gospel of Loki by Joanne Harris (audio) – via library on 7/8 – in queue
The Rook by Daniel O’Malley (audio) – via library on 7/8 – in queue
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo – bought 7/7 – thumbs up!
Buddha Boy by Kathe Koja (audio) – via Sync YA on 7/2 – in queue
Echoes of an Angel by Aquanetta Gordon (audio) – via Sync YA on 7/2 – in queue
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell – via library on 7/1 – thumbs up!
Emily and Einstein by Linda Frances Lee (audio) – via library on 7/1 – in queue
Monster by Walter Dean Myers (audio) – via Sync YA on 6/25 – in queue
Lord of the Flies by William Golding (audio) – via Sync YA on 6/25 – thumbs up!

So yeah, I’ve gotten a lot of audio lately. Mostly that’s because of all the packing, moving, unpacking, settling in, etc. My queue is growing overly large lately, though, so I’m sure soon I’m going to have a series of trial listens to weed out those that aren’t going to work for me…

  2. Out of my last ten books, I am pretty sure only two did not come from the library (one was borrowed and one I purchased).

      I so very rarely acquire books other than from free sources like the library and Sync YA. I’m surprised there was a purchased book on my list, but I guess that adds just a little variety, heh. 🙂
