I really should do more of these, but I don’t. Mostly because I’m too lazy. But I was so excited when I looked at my budget at the end of January that I had to share the good news!
Books Bought in January
Three. Yep, that’s right. Only three!!! I made a list in December for the first 6 months of the year of all the books I want to buy and that was it! No more! I came across other books I wanted to buy, but if I added a book then I had to take one off and so far it’s working! (No need to rain on my parade and point out it’s only one month!)
None of these books were originally on my list, but they were all awesome, so it was money well spent.
My Latest Grievance
I’ve had two Facebook friends recently post on Facebook that they are tired of all the drama and want it to stop. This makes me laugh because both of them are the ones putting things out there like “__________ is so lazy at work and I’m tired of doing her work” or the intimate details of their custody battle.
I recently started a certification course and it’s taking up a lot of my time, which is fine, but it’s also driving me a little bit crazy. I forgot how OCD I am about school stuff and this class is bringing out the worst in me. I’m pretty much telling myself 3-4 times a week that I just need to let it go, and we’re only 3 weeks into the course. Is it too much to ask that we read the books in order? If the author wanted me to read chapter 13 before chapter 2 he would have written that way. Right?
What will I buy in February?
I didn’t think about it until now but I’m going to start putting my purchase book list out here so that all my lovely readers can hold me accountable. See me reading a new release that’s not on my list? Go ahead and yell at me!
For the Dark Days Tour on Feb 6th:
I know six books seems like a lot for someone who is cutting back, but I have a $35 B&N gift certificate and $35 Visa card from Hyundai because they misquoted the mpg on the sticker* so I’ll be getting all this… for like $20. That makes it ok, right?
* This Hyundai deal is one of the most awesome things ever. For as long as I own the car every time I take it to the dealer they read my odometer and then put cash on this card. I realize that I should probably be spending the money on gas, but whatever. Books are better.
