No Book Buying Challenge 2015 – April Update
As you know, we are co-hosting the Show Your Shelves Some Love: A No Book Buying Challenge. You can also review the details of the post on the “No Book Buying Challenge“ page from the menu above. For April we are talking about avoiding relapse. How are you sticking to your book buying budget and refraining from full-on bookaholic relapse??
Julie: Honestly I just haven’t had time to read *or* shop lately. Full time working mom means no time for personal hobbies. So I just haven’t even had any book buying urges since my current TBR piles are sad enough heh.
I have embedded my Goodreads shelf so that I can share the books I read as I go.
Lynn: I have definitely relapsed this month. My ratio of books read (1 on my challenge list) to books acquired (15) is abysmal. I am reading books. But most are from the library, and for book clubs. I did snag 15 free books this past month, though. One was a free download and 14 were from our book club friend Mary. She was getting rid of a bunch of books before moving. I just can’t say no to the free books. I clearly need to focus on reading the books I have. Though, I do have a bunch of books on hold from the library. I am struggling with the shiny new releases that are published, week after week.
Rose: okay, like Lynn, I relapsed and I blame our friend, Mary! It is all HER fault since she gave us both so many amazing books. I have not counted the books that I received since I believe ignorance is bliss. I have not purchased new books… all books I have acquired have been free to me. However, if the goal is to read the books I already owned, I think I am failing. Sad face.
