October 2013 Book Haul

Every month, I like to take stock of the books that I bought/received and what I paid for them…just to see how many books I’ve added to my collection and whether or not I’m staying on budget. My loose budget is around $50 per month. Sometimes I go over, and sometimes (like last month), I’m gloriously under!

Total Spent on Books This Month = $86.32

Yikes! I didn’t plan on spending quite this much, but I kind of got sucked into a really good deal on BookOutlet.com and all of that went out the window!

But I am pleased with how well I did on price-per-book — which came to $3.45 per book, with 25 books bought total. I think that’s a really good deal!

  1. Whoa, compared to you, I spent A LOT more than $87!
    I hope you love Anna Dressed In Blood, it’s very good and reminds me of the show Supernatural. Unearthly is pretty good and Monument 14 is pretty interesting. ;D
    I hope you enjoy all your lovely books! (:
