Book Haul (52) and What Are You Reading?

I no longer read The Story Siren due to this year's earlier plagiarism scandal, and posts formerly known as IMM will henceforth be known as Book Hauls.  These posts will be labeled as Book Hauls from now on.  Eventually, I intend to give all prior IMM posts the Book Haul label.  Also, since I believe almost everyone has thought to themselves, "Hey, I should post about the books I got!" at one point or another, I will not be crediting the idea to any particular person or blog.  Thank you all for understanding and supporting my stance on this issue.

This was filmed some time in May or June, after which I bought and received some review books that all got packed up and made my big move with me.  I was still in Pennsylvania and therefore still in Pittsburgh when I filmed this vlog, and I can assure that the crazy of graduate school shows.  Since those are spread out among various boxes and whatnot, I won't be doing a Book Haul for them, but a book haul that covers the month of September will be up soon.

I've actually gotten a TON of books read since the last IMM I posted. Instead of listing them all here, I invite you to visit my GoodReads page and take a look at my challenge page. If you're on the blog right now, you can find a link in the upper right hand corner.   Next time I do an IMM I'll probably list everything I've read.

  1. I've been meaning to stop by and say this forever, because I first watched/read this in a feedreader, but I am so glad I'm not the only one that still refuses to visit TSS. I just CAN'T let go of plagiarism. I CANNOT. Sometimes I feel like maybe I'm being ridiculous, or too harsh, or something, and then I think: NO. She willfully and repeatedly stole entire SWATHS of content, then lied about it, then tried to keep it secret. This, from someone who wants to be an author. Being inspired is one thing, and maybe crossing the boundary a little more than one should, I can forgive, but this I just can't. Even if it was over something silly.

    So yeah, nothing to do with your haul, just wanted to say that. =)
