2016 Book Purchases: September
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-Sep-2016: I have a pre-order for September: Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews!! SQUEEEEEEE!

25-Sep-2016: Wow. So. I totally forgot about a local book festival and I ended up going with a friend. FUN TIMES! But not sweet for the wallet. IDK how I should categorize those purchases – still pondering that.

27-Sep-2016: Ok. I HAVE to stop spending money now. It’s like I realized I’ve been exercising restraint and thus lost it. O_O
