Book Buying Budgets: Do you have one? Do you wish you had one? Do you track book buying expenses? Are you ready to show your book shelves some love by signing up for our No Book Buying Challenge???
I’ve kind of adopted a ‘stop buying books you hoarder’ budget where I can only buy books if I’m going to read them right away. I give myself a pass if the kindle daily deal for a book on my TBR is like $1.99, ’cause come on! But normally, I try to avoid buying books that will just sit on the shelves, physically or virtually, forever. That way I can spend money on books I actually plan to devour and enjoy. I haven’t tracked my book buying expenses, but I’m curious to see how much it turns out to be. I‘m looking forward to doing that as part of this awesome challenge we’re about to start.
In the past three years, I have not really had a book buying budget. I have been in a very comfortable position financially where it didn’t matter how much I spent on books. Now I am tightening my budget and that includes my book buying budget as well. I plan to start tracking my expenses more but only buying books with amazon gift cards that I receive from points earned on my credit card. And I intend to dominate the book buying challenge! I have shelves and shelves of books I have not read, but would like to! I cannot wait till this challenge starts! I would love to be able to say that I have read every book I own!
