Avid reader, blogger, compulsive one-clicker, genre-omnivore.
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!
Participating in Stacking The Shelves has helped me to keep better track of books I’m adding to my huge TBR pile every week, and I think I have gotten a little better at not adding too many books every single week. Participating in this blog-hop has also introduced me to more new blogs, and some weeks, I add more books to my ‘might-read-one-day’ shelf than I should, but before I actually have the books on my kindle, nothing has been decided yet.
Since I am currently on a study trip in Stratford-upon-Avon, I have several Shakespeareian objects to share this week, I did get two Netgalley ARCs as well, that I had requested a while ago But I will share those next week instead of this week.
The book in the upper left corner is a book of Shakespeare Quotations, where a word is described in Shakespeare’s way The book itself is beautiful, and it has a quote for every occasion
Then, the full sonnets, this books was just too beautiful to not get, no way I could resist it. The same for A Midsummer Night’s Dream – which I already own, I just loved this version of it, the cover is gorgeous. It also has the Royal Shakespeare Company sign on
Arden of Faversham is the play we watched on Thursday night, and it isn’t completely sure that it is Shakespeare, however, I wanted the play to read since I really enjoyed it in the Swan theatre.
I also got the filmed version of Titus Andronicus, we watched this movie for class, and I think I’m going to write an essay on the different way Tamora was portrayed in the movie and in the play I watched at The Globe on Tuesday evening. All’s Well that Ends Well is here in an English filmed version from The Globe, and I wanted that because there are several dialogs that are in rhyme that I want to listen to, and the version we watched at the Globe on Wednesday was in an Indian language, so I didn’t understand anything the actors were saying…
Last, but not least, I got this wallbook, which has every play Shakespeare has written, with a small summary and some drawn pictures to show what and whom the play is about. It’s beautiful, and I think it would be great to use in the classroom if I get to teach Shakespeare one day
