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?!
**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.
