Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. This meme gives bloggers a chance to share with readers what we bought, borrowed, swapped, won or received for review each week. I also decided that I would do a weekly recap, and link up with The Sunday Post, which is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer, that was inspired in part by In My Mailbox. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Life Outside the ‘Net
This week was my last week of vacation, but instead of squeezing every bit of joy out of it I could, I decided to go in to work, and set up my classroom. I know I’m going to think myself for this later. I also had a couple of professional developments, so… cha-ching! Aside from getting read for the school year, I also began training for the Los Angeles Marathon. I’m not definitely going to do it, as last time it was brutal, but I’m setting the goal. After six days of working out, and preparing my classroom I am sore. Like they say, “No pain, no gain!”
In bookish news, this past week was crazy here at I Was Angelized_1st, but things will slow down a tad as I return to work. Maybe even more so as I go to school at the end of the month to start learning Japanese. I just won’t have the time to devour books as I did this summer. Never fear! The blog won’t die. So stay tuned!
I found this online on Society 6, and fell head over heels in love. How could I not? Khaleesi!! Hopefully this will make the Game of Thrones hell-atus (hellish hiatus for non-tv talkers) bearable. Not sure what I’ll use it for as I need a new bag like a hole in the head, but…. Khaleesi!! Sorry! I think the wait for George R. R. Martin to release Winds of Winter is driving me insane. Khaleesi!
