2015 Book Purchases: April
2015 is a new year and new opportunity to challenge myself! This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I did in 2014 (evaluation coming). The biggest goal of this Purchase Challenge is to control my book spending: no more than $20 per month.

I always start the draft for these monthly book purchase updates at the beginning of the month. It gives me a chance to look back over the previous month and encourage myself to do better throughout the coming month.

April is my birthday month! I sometimes go a little overboard during April but this year I will try to rein it in.

01-May-2015: Yaaaay! I did GREAT in April!
