It’s that time of the month again where I go through my stats to see how I did. When it comes to new books, my goal is always to bring in less than I read each month. With that in mind, I keep track of everything that I bring in each month, but the only ones that count towards my new books/read books ratio are the ones that actually get added to my TBR.
Firstly I do have a few books added to my collection that I’d read before purchasing them, so they don’t count towards my challenge. This month I added a few more Nancy Drew books to fill in some holes in my collection as well as a copy of Snug, which I read as an eArc and wanted a physical copy of.
Next I bought the rest of Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series that I was missing so I have all of them available to me. I also picked up three books from Book of the Month this month. My regular book was You Are Not Alone while the other two were add-ons. I then picked up two graphic novels, but managed to read both of them in the month of February, so that one was a win.
And then…a few trips to Barnes and Noble and Amazon happened. Oops? I picked up a number of books that I’ve been meaning to get for a while as well as some new releases that I’ve been looking forward to. I won’t lie, some of this pile was a present to myself out of my tax refund, but I’m hoping March will be a much smaller book haul month cause I need to get to my physical books!
Finally, no book haul post would be complete without Calypso’s help. She likes to keep me on my toes when I’m trying to take pictures!
