Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop!

This week’s question is: Do you have a monthly/yearly budget for books? Or are you a “what’s a book budget?” kind of reader? (submitted by Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books)

 

Lou’s answer; I have never really had a budget for books before, no. Before starting this blog and joining this community I mainly bought eBooks and really didn’t spend all that much at all. Since then though things have gotten completely out of control! My love for real physical books has been rekindled, my shelves are overflowing and I have actually had to set myself a serious budget now. I am spending more time looking for Wishlist books in charity shops and also making use of the library to get books that I really want to read. If I see something I want, the first place I check now is the library and if I do decide I want to buy a new book I am asking myself the very serious question, “Am I going to read this anytime soon?” if the answer is no I am trying very, very hard to stop myself from spending the money!

 

Do you have a book budget or are you an out of control book buyer?

  1. I’m the same as you really. I never used to buy too many books but since starting my blog it’s not ridiculous 😂 I try to keep it under control by letting myself go crazy one month and then the next I’ll be really good. It seems to be working so far!

  2. I was the same way before I started my blog. I usually only bought e-books, but once I started my book blog I got addicted to buying books and somehow have collected over 500 of them! YIKES haha. That’s a good question to ask yourself when deciding to buy books. I am horrible at it and buy books knowing I probably won’t read it for a while UGHH. I definitely need to get better about that. 😛 As far as book budget goes, I don’t really have one. But I’ve been trying a little harder to be more picky of what I buy and try to use my library more or wait for books to go on e-book sale.
