Stacking the Shelves (70): San Diego Comic Con Edition

Stacking The Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

My family and I attended San Diego Comic Con for the first time this year. It was awesome!! We only went Friday and Saturday, and just those two days totally wiped us out. It was overwhelming, crowded, colorful, and amazing. We learned a lot this time around and hope to go again next year with our new found experience under our belts, perhaps even ready to brave the line for Hall H.

You can find my thoughts on our Comic Con experience HERE.

Of course, being a bibliophile, books and authors were a big draw for me, and I got to see some amazing authors. I brought several books with me to have signed, and only bought one there. But my bags quickly doubled then tripled in size with the amazing booths to be visited and giveaways to be had.

Here are the books I actually got at Comic Con, and all but one were FREE!
