2015 Book Purchases: October
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.

 
15-Oct-2015 – I’ve really lucked out in finding some great hardcover books for really bottom of the barrel prices. SCORE!

23-Oct-2015 – Jesus Christ!! What happened??! I’ve been doing so good. But this? This is a straight up mess.
