Stacking the Shelves (Dec. 23, 2012)

Tynga of Tynga's Reviews has a meme to spotlight the books we receive each week. Visit her site to check out the linky and see what everyone gets. I guarantee that your TBR pile will grow.
This week was an all science fiction week. Here are the three books I got:
I got Star Trek novel Prime Directive by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. I recently read an article that said this was one of the best Star Trek books. I used to read these all the time but somehow missed this one. 

I got Shadow Ops: Control Point by Myke Cole after hearing him speak on a podcast about adding current military practice to science fiction novels. I thought, since I like science fiction and paranormals, I would give his first novel a try. Anything where the blurb starts: "Army Officer. Fugitive. Sorcerer." will catch my attention.

I also got a copy of John Scalzi's Old Mans War for my Kindle. I like the story when I read it a while ago and wanted to have a handy copy. Also this is a warm-up for the newest book in the series which will be coming soon. It was $2.99 when I bought it but I see it is back to $7.99 again now.

What did you get this week?


  1. Nice! Haven't heard of these but hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Old Follower :)

  2. I had not heard of these books before, but I love the cover of Shadow Ops. I hope you enjoy them.

  3. I've never watched Star Trek surprisingly. Hope you enjoy all your books. I see your a librarian in a school. I'm certified to teach elementary, but ended up taking a different career route, but I've always considered going back to become a school librarian. I always wondered though, what kind of classes do you take for that? Also, I'm following you on twitter now. Thanks for stopping by today!

  4. Oh awesome sci-fi books! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    My Book Haul! Letterbox Love!
    Happy Holidays!

  5. I listened to Shadow Ops: Control Point. I though it was a little strange. Wonder how you will like it.

  6. I didn't know there were Star Trek books. I'm a ST:TNG fan myself . I love Picard :-)

    Have a wonderful holiday week filled with reading and relaxing.
