BEA'S BOOK NOOK "I can't imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once." C. S. Lewis “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde

January Balancing the Books


Inspired by Fantasy Is More Fun and The Geeky Blogger's Book Blog, I decided to start tracking my book expenses this year. I'll do a wrap up post at the end of each month.

I've given myself $10 real money each month to spend on books, whether for myself or as gifts, and another $10 per month for blog giveaways. "Real money" being cash from my bank account as opposed to gift cards and store credits. Books from my personal shelves, borrowed from the library or a friend, and books received for review do not count against my purchases though I'll track review and library books here as books acquired.
