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.

Not awfully bad for this month. Purchases were not necessary though, and were totally impulse buys. Two of them were just because my brain decided I was going to collect this author’s series in hardcover instead of the multiple books I already have signed in paperback. When I say signed, I’m meaning addressed to me. No taking to the local recycled book store. Who wants to buy a book with my name in it? I definitely wasn’t thinking this one through.

I got an email this month that totally jump started my memory. I still had books on Paperback Swap! I received an email requesting a simple dictionary and thought “hey, I wonder what else is out there?” So, I spent a good hour or two scouring their site for books I wanted. I put a lot on a wishlist. I will probably never get them, but what the hell. There were a couple available ones though. I received the first one and was not all that happy. It didn’t have major defects, but the page coloring is going to cause a problem. The rest of this series is on a floating wall shelf and the pages are going to show. This is a book trade site, not a store, so I need to tone down my expectations. Not everyone is as particular about the appearance of their books as I am. If it doesn’t look right to me, I can always put it back up for trade.

Below is the grand book haul for October!
