In case you missed it, here's what happened in the Ruins this week . . .

Stacking The Shelves and Mailbox Monday are a pair of weekly memes that are about sharing the books that came your way over the past week, and which you've added to your shelves - whether they be physical or virtual, borrowed or bought, or for pleasure or review.

A pair of new review titles this week, one physical and one digital:

The Black Guard by A.J. Smith
Dead on the Bones: Pulp on Fire by Joe R. Lansdale

I also grabbed the next few books I needed to keep my Growing Into Fantasy experiment going.

And, as always, grabbed a few Kindle freebies and WTF Friday purchases:



It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is another weekly meme, this time focused on what books are spending the most time in your hands and in your head, as opposed to what's been added to your shelf.

What's topping your shelves this week?


  1. All of your titles this week are new to me-hope you enjoy them!

  2. I do happen to fancy me The Black Guard...

  3. OOh nice! Those are totally new to me ones! Hope you enjoy them all!

  4. Ooooo, The Black Guard seems interesting to me! I've not heard of any of these, but some of them have really nice covers. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a fabulous weekend. :)

  5. Looking at your currently reading books, I was like, what is going on in that cover over there, until I realized you reading a Gor book, lol. Hope you're enjoying it, and The Wall of Storms too.
