Stacking the Shelves is a new meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews where bloggers share what they got throughout the week!
The only reason I picked this book up at the book sale they were having on campus is because I thought the cover was pretty! Haha, but also because I've never read anything by Virginia Woolf and thought it was about time I did! When I bought it, the girl working the table told me I had made an excellent choice, so I take that as a good sign!
So I was at King Library (the library on campus) and I was getting books for my Shakespeare research paper (I'm writing about King Lear. Yippee!) and I passed by the Jane Austen books. I've always wanted to read one but just haven't gotten around to it, so I decided to check it this really cool, old copy of the book! The first time it was checked out was in the 80s and it even has pictures of the characters interspersed throughout the book. Isn't that cool? So I'm excited to be able to finally read it!
And I got even more movies to watch from the local library! I have been watching the classics like crazy and I just can't get enough of them! I've fallen in love with any Audrey Hepburn movie, so I'm trying to watch every single one of them! I can't wait to get to all of these movies! They all look fantastic!
That's all for me! Not a lot of books, but I'll definitely be busy this week! What did you all add this week? I'd love to hear, so please share! And I hope you guys have a great weekend :)
Great haul! Happy reading!ReplyDelete

OOh yay for Jaws!! I loooove that movie! Practically grew up watching it! And a few years ago I did finally read the book, which is vastly different from the movie. It's the rare instance where I like the movie better, but it's only because I had already seen the movie hundreds of times already!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your reads!
My STS will be up tomorrow, so be sure to stop by!
Have a GREAT weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my STS! I have to watch the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice still, I've only seen the Keira Knightly version. Love it and watch it all the time. Jaws is awesome too! The author used to come to the doctor's office I worked at. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Happy reading but also watching Pride and Prejudice is ace.ReplyDelete

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I haven't read the Virginia Woolf books you borrowed, but I've read Mrs Dalloway and Orlando and I love Woolf's style! I hope you'll enjoy them :) Old library copies are awesome! I love it when they've been read so often that they're nearly falling apart or have little notes scribbled into the margins ^^ReplyDelete
Have fun with your Hepburn marathon! I've only seen Breakfast at Tiffany's but I've wanted to see more movies with her ever since :)
Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by my post earlier!
Hope you enjoy your movies.ReplyDelete

I hope you enjoy reading Pride and Prejudice! The adaptation with Colin Firth is absolutely amazing. Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
That sounds like such a cool version of Pride and Prejudice! I still need to read it myself. I read Persuasion last year and loved it. ;)ReplyDelete
I really REALLY need to watch some old movies. I've only seen like a handful of them in my life and it makes me feel uncultured. I need to just start watching at least one a month.
I hope you enjoy everything! :D
You do have some great classics this week. Thanks for visiting.ReplyDelete
