2016 Book Purchases: March
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.

02-Mar-2016: OK! I have two (2) pre-orders for March: Marked In Flesh (The Others #4) by Anne Bishop (09-Mar-2016) and The Undoing (Call Of Crows #2) by Shelly Laurenston (29-Mar-2016).
