2017 Book Purchases: May
2017!! New Year, new challenges!

This is a continuation of the purchase challenge I started in 2014, making this is the 4th 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.

01-May-2017: I have two pre-orders for May and they are BOTH for Ilona Andrews books!!!!!!!!! I have a Subterranean Press edition of The Innkeeper Chronicles that should be delivered sometime in May. I also have a copy of White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2) due 30-May-2017. WOOOT!!
