I haven’t done one of these posts in a long time, in fact I looked back and it’s been four months! Here’s the thing, I’m a chronic book hoarder. I said it, and so I have no idea how many books I’ve acquired in the last four months – a lot is safe to say. So this is just my best guess.

At the beginning of 2016 I decided to go on a book buying ban and only read books I own or I could borrow from the library. I did resolve to allow myself one book purchase a month so I wouldn’t go crazy and buy ALL the books in a fit of rebellion. So, I guess the question is, how did I do?

… What? Thats more than one? Alright, so I’m not much good at book buying bans. However, I would like to defend myself. I started the ban so that I wouldn’t spend as much money and mostly because I need to read the books I already own. The only expensive (but totally worth it) book was Passenger. The Queen of the Tearling was only $7.00 and I needed to add it to my cart for free shipping. The ebooks were 1.99 – 2.99 and the two books I bought second-hand were fifty cents each! I simply cannot turn down a fifty cent book. PLUS I have already read The Queen of the Tearling and Secret Daughter, which means I wasn’t adding to my TBR pile in buying them. So I think I sort of stuck to my buying ban alright. I will try harder next month, but really 7 books for a total of $31.00 isn’t bad and much better than previous months. Perhaps instead of a number of books I should give myself a book allowance of a certain amount of money. Then I can choose, one new hard cover, a couple older paperbacks or a few used books. Have you ever been on a book buying ban? How did it go?
