Read the Book You Buy: February

Read the Books You Buy: February

Oh dear, I went on a book-buying binge...I don't regret buying them (at all), but based on how many I haven't read yet, I can't say that I really needed any of them either.  I have so much reading material waiting for me on my Kindle already that adding this many books in one month is kind of overkill.

So the grand total spend on reading materials this month was a whopping $139.00...I spent just slightly more than that on food this month.  I have only read 7/49 or 14% of these books (or $29.18/$139 for 21% based on money spent).  Three events contributed to my crazy one-click buys this month: reading about Joyee Flynn's Purrfect Mates series (her books ride the line of crazy shifter behavior but I love them), going through the archives of rainbow-reviews and sampling a bunch of books, and discovering Sinfully m/m reviews' $0.99 sale release posts on M/W/F.  Add that in with my woefully slim willpower to say no to a book (come on, it's a book--who can say no to that????) and you get this month's madness...While I don't feel guilty about my book buys, I am going to attempt to scale it back in March only because I also purchased a new Kindle this month and am currently working my way through ALL of my Amazon digital purchases since December 2010 and I am currently sitting on 790+ books I need to read and have only looked at purchases through to July 2013 (I decided to start with the oldest downloads and work my way to current stuff--it is interesting some of the things I thought I might read)...Add in the 1300+ book on my library's for-later-shelf PLUS all of the starred/highlighted books in my Romantic Times magazines and I have plenty of reading material for the next six to seven years (I read 500-600 books a year thank goodness!)...
