Our bookcases arrived yesterday and we spent the afternoon finally unpacking the many, many boxes of books that had been just uglifying the room. It's looking pretty good, although the room won't be finished until the curtain rods and chaise arrive. Then it'll be our cozy little reading and gaming room.

Lordy, I have too many SVH books. I've double-stacked them, and they still take up a shelf-and-a-half. I'm going to have to pare them down to the absolute must-keeps and dump all the rest at Goodwill. I thought about saving them for my niece, but they really are dated a Gen X thing, and I don't think she'd appreciate them. So far I think I'll keep the first 25 or so--the classics--then the whole Evil Twin miniseries, and the last ones with the earthquake and all that. I'll most likely dump all SVU and Senior Year ones, except maybe Dead Before Dawn because of the COVER, and since it's pretty much just Lila/Bruce, and not that I was a Lila/Bruce shipper, but they turned out to be much more interesting than the twins.

And a good thing we got everything unpacked, because I was down to my last spare book and was going to have to start digging out something to read.

So, books from July and August, three plus two manga/comics. July and August were super busy, obvs.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Extras by Scott Westerfeld
The School for Good and Evil: The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani

Archie: The Married Life book 6
Say I Love You v5

You ought to check out your local libraries. Mine continues to astound me with the breadth and up-to-date-ness of manga available, including the latest from Japan.

Frankly, I don't know how they continue to put some of the shoujo titles in the teen section. No complaints though.

I haven't had a chance to go to the library yet even though it's just a mile away because we just spend so much time working around here that I don't feel like going anywhere when we're done.
