Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you’re adding to your shelves, be it buying or borrowing. From ‘real’ books you’ve purchased, a book you’ve borrowed, a book you’ve been given or an e-book they can all be shared!
This week I went to the wonderful Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath. I had another reading spa with my sister. You can read about our first experience of a reading spa HERE.
This time around, we had the lovely Amy as our bibliotherapist. Amy made us a cup of tea and then sat down to chat to us about our reading tastes. It was a lovely chat and we found out that our reading tastes were very similar. A wonderful bibliotherapist for us both!
Amy then supplied us with the yummiest cake as she went to collect a pile of books for us to look at. Amy come back with a huge stack of books. She also brought Emma with her (our first bibliotherapist from our first reading spa!) to talk through some books. As Amy knew we were looking into graphic novels, she also brought Ed to speak to us about some graphic novels he thought we might be interested in. All of the staff at Mr B’s are so lovely!
Here are the books we picked up. If you click on the title of the book below the photograph it’ll take you to Goodreads. What I love about this stack is that the majority of books are books we would never have picked up. I can’t wait to read them.
