So I’ve been making spreadsheets for both my physical and kindle books I’ve gotten this year… The numbers for both are pretty scary to say the least… I haven’t yet calculated the amount of money I’ve spent, but I can tell you the number of books I bought/downloaded…
Since the beginning of this year, I have bought around 169 books (not including Kindle books) and downloaded around 900 Kindle books. I’m honestly kind of scared to see the amount of money that I have spent on all these books. I’ve bought around 20-30 of those Kindle books either for $.99 or around $2.99 or less.
Earlier in the year I kept track every week with how much I spent, but as the semester went on in the spring, I didn’t have enough time to keep up with it. But just when I was doing that, I can guarantee I spent at least $150-$200 on books… For the end of the year I will see how much I spent versus the actual cost of what the books would have cost me. I always buy them with some kind of discount, the majority of the time at least half off because of Amazon and Half Price Books. :)
I’ve tried to go on a book buying ban especially during the summer. I mean it went pretty well, I didn’t buy that many books. But when the fall semester started, that quickly went downhill.
But anyway, I guess that’s it! Let’s see how next year goes and how much I’ve spent this year! :)
See you guys next week with my next confession! ;)
