Bookish Life Budget ~ October & November 2020 Update

Posted December 9, 2020 by Tanya in Book Haul, Budget / 0 Comments

As everyone has probably noticed, I’m been pretty scarce lately. Besides being busy with my parent’s kidney transplant, I needed to take a step back from everything. I still haven’t gotten my head back into reading consistently. I’m glad I have the commute time to still be able to get my audiobooks in. Otherwise I would be even farther behind in my Goodreads challenge. I did reduce my goal, but I’m wondering if I’m going to actually hit even that lowered number.

I did get my bookshelves done and I was extremely excited. We were not really happy with what the contractor did so my husband went over them and gave them a bit of an upgrade. I don’t really consider what they did “floor to ceiling shelves” which is what I asked for. We’ve really spruced them up though so I’m happy!

Since I had a little bit of room on these new shelves, I decided to get the rest of the Battlepug graphic novels. I absolutely LOVE their covers and I think they look really good displayed. Also, this month, I actually read a self-help book. You could knock me over with a feather! It wasn’t bad, and I feel like I got some use out of it, but overall it didn’t really fit my needs. These are my goodies this month (well, two months!)

Well, I hope to be around more in December. I’m slowly coming back to myself and may be able to get caught up on my reviews so my audiobook challenge will reflect my year. I haven’t been able to get much ebook wise, but there are is a back up of audiobook reviews.

Hope to see you all soon! Drop me a note, I miss all of you! Have a great December! Happy Holidays!
