July Stats

New books* read in July: 18

Books read as soon as they arrived: 3

Most read author in July: Jasper Fforde

Books* read this year: 129

Books bought: 17 – 13 paperbacks (but they haven’t all arrived yet so the pile is smaller…) and 4 e books

Books acquired**: 9

Net progress: 8 books more on the pile…

Oh dear.  I was going really well until the last week of the month – when I bought 7 books second hand on recommendations and another couple of kindle daily deals.  But really the problem is the tempting Nature of Net Galley – and my ability to acquire books on there.  But as they are all on the Kindle, they kind of don’t count right?  I’ve decided that I need to weed the library pile – there are clearly books there I’m never going to read and I should take them back.  And will August be the month that I admit defeat on Titus Groan – or will I finally finish it?!


* Total includes some short stories (2 this month – Ivy Lane: Spring and A Place for Us Part 1)

**You’ll notice I’ve added a new category this month – books acquired – to cover the free books that I’m winning or being sent via NetGalley etc and free kindle books.
