Not a great start to reclaiming my book budget but I’m hoping by being transparent about it I can look through it and teach myself to have stronger willpower each month. So far in February (geesh! It’s the 9th already?!) I have stopped myself from buying $40 in ebooks and my B&N cart with $140 (after coupons and sales) in YA books. Seriously I was IN for that 3 for $30 sale. Then I remembered my goals for this year and what I’ve already done in January and reigned it back in. Having unexpected income still doesn’t give me the right to just blow it all. So far in February I’m doing well. Thankfully it’s a short month! 😉

This Month:
$25.85 in Purchased Books
$15.00 – 5 @ $3.00 each Credits at Paperbackswap (from another member)
$20.00 – Paperbackswap Cash (To mail books)

$89.53 Total

The House (2017)
The Emoji Movie (2017)

      Thanks! I borrowed it from another blogger. Naturally I didn’t keep it up though. Le sigh! Maybe I can still it up but just not as detailed. I need to read the second book. It was good but a very quick read!
