Balancing the Book Budget: January 2013 Check-In

Monthly Balancing the Book Budget October 2013


  • I can spend $50 a month on book purchases (not including my 2 credits from Audible)
  • This month I allowed $50 to be spent at Buns & Roses for charity (not books but raffle items)
  • This month was also Dewey’s which is a Read for Charity Event for me (no limit on this)

 The Totals

Books Purchased/Dollar Amounts (15): 

For me: $15.10
GiveAway: $43.59

Total Spent: $58.59 (Darn it I went over)

Audiobook Credits (5) used: I still have 1 unused credits for when something screams at me (should be getting another for purchasing 2 books):)

NOTE: I received 3 audiobook credits from a friend as a thank you gift!

  • Two Weeks’ Notice: A Revivalist Novel, Book 2 by Rachel Caine
  • Eat Slay Love: Living with the Dead, Book 3 by Jesse Petersen (2 for 1 deal)
  • Allison Hewitt Is Trapped: A Zombie Novel by Madeleine Roux (2 for 1 deal)
  • Night of the Living Deed by E.J. Copperman
  • Allegiant: Divergent Trilogy, Book 3 by Veronica Roth (RETURNED)
  • Darkness Rises: Immortal Guardians Series, Book 4 by Dianne Duvall
  • Terminated: Revivalist, Book 3 by Rachel Caine

Books for Review (Physical, Edelweiss, NetGalley) (Probably quite a few):  CRAP I again didn’t track!

Audiobooks for Review (10 I think): CRAP I again didn’t track!

Books Won (0):

Book Events (2):

  • Buns and Roses for RALC ($35)
  • Dewey’s Read-a-Thon ($89.50 for Charity)

Total Spent: 124.50

This month was about what I expected.  I was a little over with purchases but both charity events were planned in advanced.  How was your month?

    I need to seriously start doing this – I’m trying to be more responsible and aware with my book purchases. Maybe this would make me. I love that you give so much to charity too – incredible! Looking forward to all the reviews (hopefully I’ll get caught up soon and won’t be weeks behind)!

    I’m impressed. I need to exhibit more control when it comes to my Kindle. Hitting that purchase button is so easy, so fast, so consequence free… 🙂

    I was brave, if I count till the 25th, when my salary gets here. Otherwise. I bought about 70 secondhand books, a little under 200 euro’s. Nothing from Bookdepo, so that is very well done for me. Of course, I spend a lot on the house in the past two months, so no book budget, but I can’t say no to a booksale if I will buy those books anyway and at much more later.
