August Book Haul 2014

 

2014-08-27 21.27.42-2

So it’s been a good month for books. If I thought I could stick to a book buying ban, I would put myself on one; but I know it won’t (mainly because I have tried), so maybe I will stick to trying to get around to reading the books that I already own. Because, ya know, I have only had them for forever.

So, as to this month.  I kind of went crazy. Again. I got around 16 books this month. Which sounds ridiculous, I know, but between Triftbooks.com, Amazon, and Book Depository, I have gotten some really good deals.

*I’ve read before

A good portion of these were ones I heard about through Tumblr and just had to get because they looked so good. The rest were ones to finish off a series.

I think my checkbook would appreciate if I did not buy any books in September. We will see at the end of the month if I manage not to buy too many books. It has been a good month for reading, though. I think I read around 20 books this month, which I am quite proud of, to be honest.
