This is where I keep track of what I have spent throughout the year on bookish items. These will include cons, books, memberships and the like. At the end of the year I will put all the month’s together and get an overall picture of my bookish life addiction.

You know, I think after previous months I’ve had, this month I deserve some kind of reward. I can’t remember the last time I went a whole month without buying a book. It has been good, and instead of drooling over what is on my shelves, I’ve actually been reading from them. Was that just a slight drop in my TBR? Probably not enough to make a difference, but hey, I’ll take what I can get! I spent a lot of time at the hospital this past month and had a lot of reading time. Not so much on the audio. I’ve also made the big leap into having a physical book on the go at the same time as an ebook and audiobook. The physical is still pretty slow going, but I’m happy to say that I haven’t had the trouble of getting things mixed up like I thought I was going to.
Despite the tight wallet this month, I still added a few to my shelves. This is what I received this month:
For mid-year, I think I’ve done pretty well. I’ve used only half my budget. I’ll need to keep on this roll for awhile though if I want to come in under budget and save some money. This may be a close one though!
How was your month? Did you get any great books or get a chance to go to any cons or signings?
