As some of you may recall, I gave myself a challenge at the beginning of February. I was to limit myself to reading only books that I already owned/had out from the library. I was not to buy any new books in this time, with the exception of new releases.
So, how did I go?
Well, silly me forgot to take into account the fact that it was my birthday in February. Which means that I got birthday money to spend on ALL THE BOOKS!!!
So, here are the books I bought with my birthday money:
And here are the books I was ‘allowed’ to buy during the challenge period:
And here are all the other books I bought because they were there, or because they were cheap, or because books.
And here’s a picture of them all together:
Total number of books bought: 16.
That’s like, one book every 4 days.
Better yet, for every one book I was allowed to buy, I bought three others.
Reading wise, I faired a little better, reading 6 of the books I bought, as well as several others:
And due to the fact that I read a few ebooks/library books/Netgalley books, here is a full pic of all the books I read:
Total books read: 18.
So, while I did technically read more books than I bought, I made a very, very small dent in my to-read pile. Also, some of these books didn’t make it to the to-read pile before they got read (namely, the ebooks/Netgalley books), so they were, if anything, counter-productive.
