I know I’ve been MIA for a bit but I am now back and hopefully, ready for this new year of blogging! Today, I want to talk about how much we spend on books.
Yes, I want to confront our book-buying habits. Well, my personal book-buying habits.
In the last year or so, I have started to change my book-buying habits. This change really started when I started to collect more books (right?) that it has started to overtake my shelves.
Story of our lives, right?
I’ve subscribed to a couple of digital subscriptions – Kindle Unlimited and Audible Escape and that has been where my $$$ has gone. Which, technically has saved me money in the long run! I also subscribe to Audible for 1 credit a month, which helps me when the audiobooks I want aren’t available to borrow at the library or books I can’t wait to listen to.
I’ve not spent a lot of money buying books – unless it’s for books that I really have to have.
I do love to shop for books and I have purchased a lot of books at a used books sale. I’ve bought a bunch (read a lot) of books at the Friends of the Library sale where I get books for really cheap, and support my local library at the same time! Win-win!
So far, I have been really good at saving my book money by not buying books at all.
I also buy books at book signings. Especially if it’s done at a local bookstore. This is my way of supporting the author and the library. While books aren’t that cheap at the bookstore, I try to buy books there as often as I can.
So, tell me how much money do you spend on books?
Do you subscribe to any book subscription service?
