Keeping myself on track these last two months to get my discussion posts done! This is number 4 for the year.
I’ve seen people do book buying budgets in the past. And up until 2020, I never wanted to mess with it, because I figured with my awesome discount as a bookstore employee, and all the free review books I got from publishers and authors, I wouldn’t bother. However this past year I decided to try it, because I find that I still buy books just because I feel like I deserve a book, or it has a pretty cover, or want it on my bookshelf after I read an e-galley or listened to an audiobook, etc.
I started off with a bit of a bump in the road with the Flirty in KC Convention in February. But then I got back on track after that. But then, summer came, and the school year started and things got crappy again, and then favorite authors keep putting out special editions, etc. So let’s say I’m pretty much quitting that book budget this year as of last month. I even thought of continuing just to see how much I was spending, but then that got kind of depressing, lol.
So tell me, have you ever tried to have a book budget? Did you keep it? Was it hard? If you did keep it, how did you do it? I think since I’m single and have all the control of the money for myself, there’s no one but me to stop me from buying books, and I was always the too lenient teacher, prefer to be the good cop in situations, even though I end up being put as the bad cop lately.
And enjoy the video for my title song, I’m going with a little Michael Buble instead of The Beatles.
