Sept’20 Book Haul

There’s definitely a direct correlation between getting a bi-monthly paycheck and my book buying.

I legit have to go buy new bookcases because I’m out of room. No amount of rearranging and finagling is going to make this months and last month’s haul fit on my shelves. I really need to back off buying physical copies of books – well, book buying in general.

  • My wallet hates me, and I should be saving money.
  • With work – if it’s not an audiobook, I barely have time to read physical/e-books.

I miss reading physical books. So much.

But without further ado – let’s jump into this massive haul.

      1. She really is. I don’t even have time to read all these books! Work is insane right now and if it’s not audio or ARCs – physical books aren’t even getting read.
        I’m a mess.
