Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and 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!
I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.
Usually, I don´t buy ebooks; I don´t like the thought that I am, at least here in Europe, only buy the license which allows me the download of the ebook to my device. But I don´t actually own it, no matter how handy they are. And besides that, why pay for an ebook 10 bucks when I can have the print edition for only two more? But when I saw the cover of Academia of the Beast in a newsletter and saw the price, I couldn´t resist. Please note that the price of the ebook can change at any time, so don´t be mad at me, if you won´t get it for -,99 cents anymore.
