I have a modest amount of money left from my festive bounty, together with a small selection of books on my wish list. I’ve decided it might be fun to log my book purchases in 2014 and try to stick to a budget:
Success will depend on thrifty shopping: browsing Amazon Marketplace and seeking Kindle bargains, searching secondhand & charity shops and when spring has sprung, trailing car boot sales. It’s my kind of retail therapy. With a local library also on hand and various unread books at home, that should see me through the next 12 months in terms of reading matter.
First purchase of 2014 is the Kindle edition of Susan Hill’s Dolly, which came in at £0.19 after a discount. A solid start. I’ll keep you posted, sporadically.
