Week 4 of 2014
How are you doing on your book buying budget?

January is going to be a 5 week month so the budget is going to be spread out very farther than I expected. So one more week left? Can we make it? I have $20.99 left in the budget and as I type this I just got an Amazon Gift Certificate! I will add that into next month’s budget!

So this week…I spent no money. Yay! I got two review books, three that I won at a giveaway and six freebies (3 are itty bitty shorts). This leaves me with about $17 still of my budge. You’re doing awesome, Shari, and woohoo about the GC.

No money! Way to go! Jennifer at The Book Nympho is spending no money this year. I don’t know if I can do that one!

Woot! Awesome Shari! (And Sophia too!). I picked up some freebies (way more than I should have), got a stack of review books and my total spent for the month so far is 18.02 which includes giveaway books for the blog and has all been paid for by gift card. So I’m doing good. Will be spending a bit this week though with a book signing happening but trying not to splurge TOO much on that.

Thanks and it looks like you’re working it too, Anna! Have fun at your book signing. I’ve honestly never been to one, but I know I’d spend the money too.

Book signings get expensive fast! Hope you can keep it under control 🙂 I spent my GC this week so I am still keeping the budget!

You did really good this week. I see you got Misbehaving,, really short but super cute and hot. Loved, you should read it soon.

Got it read. It was short and cute. Not what I have come to expect from that author.

I headed over to NetGalley & Edelweiss…I got one freebie from Amazon. Still didn’t go over my budget 😀

Enjoyed the interview ladies. And totally snorted over the BFF wiping the hard drive just in case. That’s too funny.

I thought that was funny too. Author research would look so twisted to an uninformed observer.

Yay! I think this month I am going to come out ahead. Not for a lack of wanting to buy books though.
