Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Please note that I always leave a message on your STS/SP if you visit me, but if you use DISQUS or a similar third party I will not be able to leave a comment on your page. I don't allow any company access to my social media accounts and I certainly don't allow them to edit and take over my accounts the way DISQUS does. So if you use DISQUS, I can't leave comments on your page so I can't really follow you back, sorry! I'm noticing that some blogs set with Google Plus are trying to force you to open a Google Plus or Facebook account before you can leave a comment. Well, I have no interest in rejoining Google Plus or joining Facebook so if your blog uses this set up, I won't be following it or commenting! And sometimes, I have problems leaving messages on blogs hosted by Wordpress-they try to block me so there might not be a message from me some weeks or you might get a double message sometimes! Blame them, not me!
I have been enjoying the Big Bash live from Australia-my favourite domestic cricket competition-and the World Championship PDC Darts. Awesome! Fitting in the odd film here and there but all things I've already seen so no progress on watching new stuff but I have higher hopes for that next year. I think I watched about five new ones the whole of this year which is not good enough. I'm also clearing out the unwanted ones by selling them to Music Magpie. It's only earning a few pounds but it does buy me a new book or two...!
For those of you celebrating it is nearly Santa time so I hope you are going to get lots of books, dvds and fun things to enjoy. Scrooge McChuckles will just be blogging as normal each day of the Christmas period, getting ready for the launch of my new blog posts and challenges. I don't have a linky on my challenge posts but feel free to update me on how you are doing with similar challenges on my posts! You know I love hearing from you guys! Book wise I was a naughty Chuckles this week and went on a mass ebook hunt which REALLY helps with the ebook blitz challenge...gah! But how am I meant to resist these books??? It's not my fault! Thanks to everyone who has told me about great new books this year-you might start recognising them appearing on my STS posts the next few weeks! My memory is poor as to where I saw them but I'll credit where I can!
Anyway, those who will be online over the festive period will find me here as normal each day so stop by and say hi! To those taking a break and who celebrate, Merry Christmas! To those who don't, have a happy and healthy weekend and I'll see you all when you return!
Lets start my Christmas special with a few short stories I'll be taking a look at as soon as January kicks off as well as the bad teddy bears from last week's haul! Thanks for a bit of elf rec Barb!
Thank you to Bark for alerting me to the Ray Garton sale, which directed me to grabbing a few cheap and cool sounding horror books!
Thanks to Laura Thomas for alerting me to Hunter Shea, a new author to try next year and for reminding me about cool sharks!
Thank you to Mogsy, Greg and Kristen for alerting me to these great looking and sounding books recently!
Thanks to Nikki for switching me on to a new author with a rec, and to myself for tracking down more monster books!
