2016-12-26 - x-mas book haul - 0008 [flickr]

My Christmas book haul herunterladen! I got a few new comic books as well as two crafty-type books, but my favorite gift by far is the O-Ren Ishii Funko Pop from my sister! Five of my seven rescue dogs are named after fictional characters (Ralphie refused to respond to anything other than “Ralphie,” and I rather liked Peedee’s name, so we kept it) wo kann man kinofilme downloaden. My girl Rennie is named after Lucy Liu’s character in Kill Bill, and I already have the Kaylee and Jayne pops to represent my little fireflies klingeltöne von zedge herunterladen. Sadly, I don’t think Funko makes Mags and Finnick pops. Mags is a pretty minor character in The Hunger Games series, so that’s kind of expected, but Finnick is a fan favorite windows 10 herunterladen firefox. Not that I could just buy one half of the pair, that seems w-r-o-n-g wrong.

My parents also got me – well, Mags – a blue life jacket with a fin on it herunterladen. I shit you not, Mags side-eyed me when I took it out of the box; she knew what it was straight away. I can’t wait to photograph her in it this summer adobe reader kostenlos herunterladen vollversion. I think we’ll have to make a special trip to the beach so it looks authentic, with the sand and waves. Our little pool will just look cheesy.

2016-12-30 - Treating Myself - 0003 [flickr]

There were two books in particular that I REALLY WANTED for Christmas but didn’t get: Volume 1 of Clean Room, by Gail Simone, and APB: Artists Against Police Brutality frei downloaden deutsche zeitschriften. (Which, if you’ll remember, I tried twice to buy used but ended up with unfinished ARCs each time!) As it just so happened, Amazon had a Season 9 Angel & Faith title randomly on sale, so I used that as an excuse to treat myself to all three html editor phase kostenlos download.

2016-12-11 - Book Outlet Black Friday Haul - 0005 [flickr]

Since I rarely buy print books anymore, I haven’t been browsing on Book Outlet in ages herunterladen. But I happened to catch an ad for their Black Friday sale in my spam folder and decided to give them another look. And, hello, when did they beef up their comic book selection appen voor windows 10? I checked some items off my wishlist and discovered a few new series, too.

As it just so happens, by the time I filled my cart and started the checkout process, I’d missed the deadline for the sale by like an hour. So I pared my purchases down a bit and settled on these eleven titles. It all came out to around $60 in the end, though, so it was still a steal. And now that I know they carry more graphic novels, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for the next big one! (Spoiler alert: I went a little overboard on their Boxing Day sale. More on that next month!)

    2016-10-28 - October Comic Books - 0001 [flickr]>

    First up: this month’s comic book acquisitions. Only the top one, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, is a pre-order; the rest I bought used, either on ebay (The Last Unicorn) or Amazon (everything else) mp3 on iphone.

    I received an ARC of APB: Artists against Police Brutality on accident, and I’m beginning to suspect that its replacement is lost, so … yeah, that’s fun. I’ve burned through so many of the listings that the next cheapest copy is just a cent less than if I bought it new from Amazon. Anyway, expect the REAL copy to pop up in next month’s roundup fifa for free.

    2016-10-26 - Becoming Unbecoming - 0003 [flickr]

    From this stack, I’d also like to give an extra-special mention to Becoming Unbecoming, which is just amazing. Honestly one of the most powerful books on rape and rape culture that I’ve ever read. Pick up a copy even if you’re not really into comic books – it feels more like an art project or memoir herunterladen.

    Saturday, December 26th, 2015

    This month’s Stacking the Shelves post is pretty modest, considering it includes Christmas. Since losing Peedee last month, we’ve had a hard time getting into the holiday spirit; and the only presents I exchanged with anyone was the dogs audials one 2019 herunterladen. So the only books I acquired this month were the ones I bought or won. Which is still more than I can read in a month – at least in my current jello brain state – so that’s okay when can you download disney plus! Receiving more books for Christmas when I still haven’t gotten to all of last year’s gifts probably would have made me feel a wee bit guilty anyway diablo 1 herunterladen.

    Also, I just started reviewing again after a two-month hiatus, and seeing as I’m struggling with a moderate backlog, I resisted the urge (and it was a strong one!) to request any more e-galleys this month kostenlos legal musik downloaden youtube ohne anmeldung.

Like, who wouldathunkit? One scathing email later and I got a refund on all the three items.
