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. It’s almost the middle of the year, you haven’t bought a book yet and you are dying for the latest release. Give us your best sales pitch to convince the world you deserve that book.
If there’s any book I absolutely must have (you know, if I had any time to read a physical book) it would be the upcoming Rachel Vincent book, The Stars Never Rise. I love everything that woman writes (seriously, her Soul Screamers and her Shifters series are both among my all time faves). So this one just sounds so super amazing – a girl who exorcises demons!

I’ve also only read 6 of my previously owned books so far this year. I’m not doing so well huh?
I have embedded my Goodreads shelf so that I can share the books I read as I go.
Lynn: For me, Rainbow Rowell’s special edition of Fangirl is all I can think about right now. I want it. I need it. I’m going to throw a tantrum like a 3-year old if I can’t get it. It has a preview of Carry On. And comes in three different colors (from three different book sellers). I need all three. Whew. I feel better for getting that off my chest. True, I want this book. And I don’t actually own a hard copy, I own the audio. It’s not the same as holding the actual book. And this really is one of my favorites. Right now, I don’t know if I’ll buy it or not. It’s felt really good being able to say I haven’t bought any books so far this year. That’s an impressive feat. I’ll have to think about it some more. I’ve read 6 books I own so far this year. Which doesn’t feel good. I need to buckle down and read the books I own, instead of borrowing books from the library that I’d rather read.
Right now the book I want the most is Tammara Webber’s new book, Sweet. I love anything she writes and can’t wait to get my hands on this book… I have done good on this no book buying challenge this year in that I have in fact bought ZERO books. However, I have also in fact read like ONE book I already owned this year, the rest have been free kindle book specials and audiobooks bought with existing credits. I have only read 9 books total this year!ACK!
