So...I have a wedding coming up, a few trips I am taking, my Husband's Birthday (that I spent a ton of money on, gladly), and then my Mom's Birthday and then Christmas...this leaves me almost nothing. :(

So I am joining the book buying ban for September with 'A Girl Reads a Book'

Here are my guidelines:
1. I will not purchase myself any books with the exception of Nevermore by: Kelly Creagh (cause she has to sign it for me).

2. That is about it....this ban is about saving money not downsizing so I will be swapping and contesting all over to help fill the void of not buying books.

This is going to be hard because I am hanging out with Susan and going to a convention this month. :( Anyway, wish me luck and if you can spare the coin, any donations to the site would be greatly appreciated because they will go toward mailing out giveaway books.

Also let me say this is just me (Monica) on this ban...I am sure Star is scandalize and shocked at my blasphemy here ;) So...wish me luck!

  1. I'm excited that you're doing this with us. We're all trying to offer each other support because no book buying is hard.

    I'm giving away a few books next month, so I can at least say I'm giving other people books, hehe!

  2. I think you are really brave for giving up buying books for a month because I sure couldn't do it. Good luck Monica and if you want to borrow any books from me during the month just let me know :) Oh, btw, what convention are you going to?

  3. September's my favorite month to buy books because it's when I spend the money in my classroom budget. It's unreal to spend thousands of dollars in a short amount of time. It's like magic. But, own personal spending needs to slow down. I've spent a lot lately! Stay strong and win lots!

  4. @Meaghan I am going to the AAD conference from the 16th to the 19th of Sep.

  5. I'm glad to see more people joining - I'm pretty nervous about it, I have to admit ;) Best of luck!
