24 Festive Tasks: Door 9 - Thanksgiving, Task 4 (2018 Book Harvest)

Well, we know that 2018 was the year I almost broke my shelving system ...

 

 

... or would have, if MbD hadn't shown me the way out.  According to Booklikes, I acquired 387 books this year -- 203 print books and 184 audiobooks.  And that figure is definitely too low, as there are some 70 or so Audible downloads I haven't catalogued yet and will probably only add to Booklikes once I've listened to them.

 

 

So there's no way I will be posting covers of all of this year's additions to my shelves.  But my stand-out 2018 acquisition was the new Harry Potter hardcover set, together with the Gryffindor and Ravenclaw anniversary editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  I've posted photos of it before, but anyway, just for fun (and because I'm so damned happy about it) ...

... and then there were books.

In addition to the books acquired upon my departure for Hamburg, that is.  Go figure, they had bookstores at Hamburg Airport and Hamburg Central Station as well ... and I had way too much time on my hands ahead of my return flight to Cologne.  * whistles innocently *

// TA decides to pack light because, after all, she's only leaving for a 2-day business trip.  Then agonizes a half hour over which one of several 100 books on physical TBR to take on the trip. //

 

// Leaving home, finds book in mailbox that was delivered yesterday but which for reasons unknown she didn't immediately retrieve.  Pulls book out of envelope, discards envelope, and stuffs book into travel case. //

 

TA gets to airport:  "Oh, look, there's the book store I knew all the time would be there!"

 

// Buys four more books just because. //

Sometimes the will to live is delivered by FedEx...

2 more of my boxes from the US arrived yesterday:

 

Only waiting on one more before facing the consequences of my book buying spree.  Pictures will follow; I'm pretty sure it's going to look like a bookshop tossed its cookies.

I´m afraid I overdid it ...

... a teeny tiny bit with my book buying this week.

 

 

And there are still some books I haven´t received just yet. Add to this the 3 books I have bought on my kindle for the upcoming Halloween bingo:

 

Cold Moon Over Babylon (Valancourt 20th Century Classics) - Mike Mignola,Michael McDowell  Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow - Jessica Townsend  The Devil in Gray - Graham Masterton  

 

Okay, I bought an insane amount of books, I admit it. But you know what, I don´t care. And in my defence (and not to appear as a crazy book hoarder), I have already finished Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Mass off of this pile.
