Bookish Life Budget ~ August 2015 Check-in

Posted September 1, 2015 by Tanya in Book Haul, Budget / 0 Comments


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.

Category Amount Spent this Month Remaining Balance
RT15 Final Payment $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
B&N Membership Renewal $0.00 $0.00 $0.00
Readers & ‘Ritas 2015 Event Ticket $170.12 $0.00 $170.12
Audible Subscription $124.20 $24.84 $99.36
Books (Ebooks, paperbacks & hardcovers) $325.67 $66.97 $258.70
Total: $616.98 $91.81 $525.17

So, maybe the book buying got a little out of hand this month. Definitely made up for last month. The problem here was that there were new releases that I wanted no only in electronic format, but in hard cover as well. So even though I bought the ebook of Dragonbane, I also got the hard cover. I used an Audible credit for Magic Shifts, but had to get the hard cover for that too. It’s crazy, but I love to have the paper copy on the shelf. I just keep buying hard copy books of books I have already read on my Kindle or in audio just to look pretty on my shelf. I need to break that habit.

This month I managed to haul:



This month had some great releases. Were you able to pick any up?
