So you know how I was doing really well on the book buying front? That all went out the window this week, big time! I bought eight books this week. That sounds obscene from a budget point of view, BUT they were from the second hand bookshop/the works, and so I got all 8 for £8, which I can’t really argue with!
Some of these have been on my TBR list for a while, like Dragon Bound, Blood Red Road, Havisham and The Desert Spear. A few were totally new to me but jumped out at me whilst browsing, like Prophecy: Clash of Kings and The Heir of Night.
Having gone overboard on the book haul this week I might need to reduce my book buying for the rest of the year: not just for budget purposes but also because I’m gaining books far faster than I can read them! I don’t want to go on a full ban, mostly because there are some great new releases I want, but I might try a tight budget challenge. Time for a brainstorm I think.
