Hello everyone! It’s a brand new month and it’s time for a book haul. I titled this edition “Oops I Did It Again”, because I broke my book buying ban. Last month it was my birthday, but this time there’s no excuse. I just can’t resist a good deal on books.
Sadly, the reason I accumlated so much is that one of my favorite local indie bookstores (that I’ve been shopping at for years) went out of business. 🙁 I’m really sad to lose another local bookstore. I got most of the books listed for $1 each. Some went to friends as gifts, some were donations for local library (to add to their collection), and some I snagged for a future giveaway (you’ll see soon). Anyways, the struggle not to buy books is very real.
But on the positive, I’ve cut way back on checking out too much stuff at the library. I went from 50 items to under 20 items, which is a huge an accomplishment for me. It’s helped me to focus and tackle my immediate TBR a lot easier. While I did intake a lot of books, I’ve been balancing it out with donating the books that I’ve plucked off my bookshelf to make more space. It feels great!
Now, enough chatting and on to the book haul! 😀
