Snapshot - Monthly Book Stackin'

I am a hoarder. It's true. I love books, I love book swag. I gathered as much as I could on my lil' visit to Wordstock, where I met Kimberly Derting. So fun!!. :-D

Angel Wings from  Martha Brockenbroughand her new book Devine Intervention.

My mailbox has been filling, too... lots of delicious books coming my way. From LibaryThing, I rec'd this great East vs West Showdown for review. Tons of great vehicles!!

Miki is a reader of Colorimetry as well as a blogger at  Lecture toute une Aventure. She and I have one of the awesomest things in common - the same Bloggiversary! She sent me a bookmark and a real, live handwritten letter totally out of the blue (before we knew we shared a Bloggiversary date.) When was the last time you received a handwritten letter? I want to frame it and hang it on my wall. Lol. It's absolutely beautiful!! And the bookmark is perfect!

Anne Elisabeth has visited Colorimetry before and I am excited to read -n- review her newest book, Starflower, which takes place chronologically before the others in the series. Beautiful.

Nicole O'Dell has also visited Colorimetry. This fun package was a surprise for me. Thx, Nicole!!

I haven't entered many giveaways lately. I mean, there's only so many wonderful books I can read at a time and blogging, well... *sigh* I love blogging and books!!!  They keep coming!!  But the Jane Austen giveaway? I was all over that!!  I did not have a print copy of Pride and Prejudice in my library, something I brought up, myself. *rolls eyes* So, while I was mailing Soulless to the winner of my giveaway, I was receiving P&P from another great blogger: Thank you, Ruth Hill of My Devotional Thoughts!!!  I love this copy you chose and I'm so excited to see what else is on the way! What a great giveaway!!!

Blogging is so totally awesome!!!  A year ago I would not have believed a post like this was possible. You know? But... um... there's MORE!!  Lol. I've been gathering digital goodies, too!!

Princess of Glass, Princess of the Midnight Ball & Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow from Jessica Day George. Sweet Venom, Heartless, The Escape of Princess Madeline, Evie's Knight, Wildly, Surrender, The Mind Readers, Shadow Man, Scarlette, The Naked Foods Cookbook, Kiss of the Butterfly, Butterfly Kisses & The Elite by Dan Wilson.

ScarletteDavonna Juroe and I met on Goodreads and Pinterest. Scarelette is a fairytale retelling of a nightmarish kind. I can't wait to read her book and she's coming to Colorimetry to visit later this year. :-)

Evie's KnightI really enjoyed having Kimberly Krey over for an interview recently. Her story sounds all kinds of eerie and I can't wait to read it. Evie's Knight will be the first touring book for Prism Book Tours. I don't have the post complete, yet... it'll go up on Colorimetry this Tuesday, or so. But if you're interested in touring with me, the early sign up form is ready to fill out over HERE.

Jessica Day George's books are still on a crazy-great sale, if you don't have them, yet!!  $1.59 & $4.99. SWEEEEEEET!!!!  

Thank you to Alyce @ At Home with Books for hosting Saturday Snapshot!!!
