Ok, ok, I was good on not buying this week. In my defense I was reading the books I bought last week. Waste not want not….right? Only a week left in this month and it looks like once again I am going to come in under budget. I am scared of that too. Will I have to cut the budget once again? Check out next week to find out!

Woohoo, Shari! Nicely done. Totally good that you’re reading through the purchases from last week. I didn’t buy anything either, but I picked up a ton of freebies and review books. I’ve got about $15 left on the budget. I’ve got a few that I plan to purchase so I don’t dare lower the budget even though I’ll have left over.


hey….nice Shari. I spent $6.40 this past week. One book for .99 cents and another that was full price, but its a rocker romance I really want to read.
