Week 7 of 2014
How are you doing on your book buying budget?

With just $22.73 left on my budget for February, I was a little worried I wasn’t going to make it. Good thing I was really busy with my daughter’s science project and first dance competition of the year to worry about looking for deals. One thing I did do was use up all my available credits on I won a 6 month subscription in October and I have been bad letting it build up. So I used every single one I had there. I still have 3 open at Time to get to listening books!

Still no purchases for me. I’m holding strong.

This was my big splurge week I think. I took advantage of the Valentine sales and specials along with the latest review offerings: 9 freebies, 3 review books, 2 prize books and 5 purchased books that cost me $12. I am now down to $3 for the rest of the month. We’ll have to do a dual review on Her Perfect Mate since I got that one too. 😉

good deal Shari 🙂 I think I did pretty good. A lot of books went towards my wishlist. I’m about to put my post of now.
