It’s time for Stacking the Shelves again! If you’re new to it, basically we all show off what books we’ve got in the past week. It’s hosted at Tynga’s Reviews, and you can find a ton of other people’s posts linked there too. So here’s my haul for the week — very restrained, for me: I think my partner will be shocked. At least if she discounts the ARCs, some of which I requested ages ago and some of which were unsolicited.
I think I’m most excited about reading Jo Walton’s book. It’s sort of a companion to Among Others, in a way, talking about fantasy/SF, a lot of which is probably mentioned in Among Others. That book meant a lot to me for personal reasons, but the range of books discussed in it was amazing too. I’m interested in the Sally Ride biography, too; women in space!
And for those who’re just dropping by this blog for this post, and aren’t planning to look around at the rest of it, may I tempt you to stay?
Posts coming up on The Bibliophibian sometime soon:
-Comparison of ereaders.
-Reading and the blind/partially sighted (written as an RNIB volunteer, but however not officially representing the RNIB or blind people in any way, just my personal experiences).
-Lord of the Rings Online as an adaptation of the books.
-A post in Rachel Neumeier’s blog tour for Black Dog, with giveaway!
Plus, of course, the usual reviews of a range of books and comics!

What makes this book great sounds like fun, can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it. I’m really looking forward to your post about Books and Blindness (not the actual title sorry) new follower here. Happy reading
I’m enjoying it — I feel like writing a post all about Jo Walton and what her work, fiction and non-fiction, does to my brain. It’d probably be a love letter, haha. And I hope that post will be interesting, when I get round to it.
Ohh, Darwin!! How educated 🙂 Haha, have fun with your reading!!
Yeah, I’ve read one biography of Darwin before — he had an interesting life even without the controversies, from my point of view! Thanks for dropping by.
Darwin and Sally Ride please!!
They’re not physical ARCs I can lend to you, but I’ll see what I can do…
These are new to me! Curious about them! Thanks for stopping by!

I was offered it by Penguin and said yes without knowing much about it, but now I think I’ll have to get round to it soon, I’m finding reviews really interesting. Thanks for dropping by!
