Stacking the Shelves

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!
If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!

This is my first post for Stacking the Shelves. I should be holding back on books as classes start next week. But I've managed to pick up more than a few books this week.

The required textbooks for classes:

  1. Authentic Assessment for English Language Learners: Practical Approaches for Teachers by J. Michael O'Malley & Lorraine Valdez Pierce
  2. Language Assessment: Principles and Classroom Practices by H. Douglas Brown & Priyanvada Abeywickrama
  3. Do You Speak American by Robert MacNeil
The Fun:

I've been wanting to reread this series and the library had 5 of the 7 books in their book sale room:

  1. Dragon Wing (The Death Gate Cycle, #1) 
  2. Elven Star (The Death Gate Cycle, #2) 
  3. Serpent Mage (The Death Gate Cycle, #4) 
  4. Into the Labyrinth (The Death Gate Cycle, #6) 
  5. The Seventh Gate (The Death Gate Cycle, #7) 
I have had a few books trickle in from other bookcrossers as I seem to have won the July/August edition of the tea, books, and chocolate sweeps (eep!)

  1. Madame Verona Comes Down the Hill by Dimitri Verhulst
  2. The American Film Industry by Tino Balio (Editor) 
And I grabbed a few free e-books this week:
  1. Land: A Stranded Novel by Theresa Shaver
  2. In Too Deep by Tracey Alverez
  3. Lady Gone Bad by Sabine Starr
