    Oh my goodness … I’m not sure if I’d WANT to see how much I spend on books. It’d be interesting to see, but I’d probably start hyperventilating over the number. Good for you keeping track!

    Wow Felicia, that is amazing! I totally admire you. The more I try to keep a budget, the more I spend. I just keep getting emails from people who sold me second hand books before with new batches, and I just can’t say no. And of course I need all the new shiny books that are published as well. Last month forced me to sell over 50 of my own books to my best friend, and I had not even read them yet. Of course I can always borrow them back if I want to do that in the future.

    WELL DONE FELICIA!!! Those 2012 totals look mighty familiar, I’ve gotten many a credit card bill with 294582093482 lines that say “Amazon Kindle”, and while my bank account hates seeing those lines, they just make me happy. I’ve been doing a bit better this year as well, though no where near as well as you!

    oh I’m afraid to budget my books or even write out how much I spend. It is an ungodly amount! Do you just keep a long when you spend or do you have a special program you use?
