2016 Book Purchases: June
2016!! New Year, new challenges!

This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I started in 2014, making this is the 3rd year of purchase tracking. 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.

 
31-May-2016: I have one pre-order this month: Stiletto by Daniel O’Malley!! It’s due to be released on 14-Jun-2016.
