Melodie (MelodieCO) | 5221 comments Have 2 of the 3 on order already!


message 3: by ❂ Jennifer (new)

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 2301 comments I placed my order just a few minutes ago - I already have Unnatural Habits, but since it's a favortie series, I've ordered the hardcover as well. :D

A slow month, which is probably good considering all the books we'll have from December. lol

DJ =^^= (debzee) | 145 comments y'all buy a lot of books.. do you have a spending limit each month for your books? lol because the way y'all talk it sounds like you spend hundreds each month on these books.


message 5: by ❂ Jennifer (new)

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 2301 comments I do buy a lot of books. :) And no, I don't have a spending limit each month, but having said that, I'm also very careful to order books before they're published and get the pre-order discount. I order from bookdepository so it's free shipping. I order books from used shops or bookcloseouts when I can.

I almost never spend more than 100/month on my books and most of the time, I don't reach 100. I also never shop for clothes here (I buy them when I'm in the US once a year or so) and almost never drink alcohol, go out to eat, etc.

I think everyone has something they spend on: food, tobacco, alcohol, clothes, shoes, whatever. Mine is books. :D

You're right, Jennifer! My two main vices (according to hubby) are reading and scrapbooking. Since I can't borrow most of the things I need for my scrapbooking, that's where my "mad money" goes ... and I get my books from the library :)

Melodie (MelodieCO) | 5221 comments I do buy a lot of books, but I'm not a clotheshorse or a shoe freak. I don't smoke and rarely drink. I do have a thing for purses, but the ones I like are expensive so mostly I just lust after them! I usually don't reach $100.00 a month either. Usually around 1/2 that.

Oh, I do like a good handbag, but like you, those seem to be the expensive ones. I buy one good, expensive bag then use it for the next 3-4 years. :)

That is my theory too. I don't smoke,drink or eat out and still have a closet full of clothes.
I buy audible credits and kindle books. No clutter and much lower cost. I am now reading "new" release books when they are current.

❂ Jennifer  (jennevans) | 2301 comments Some of those don't sound cozy...

I'll add the ones I can verify fit the bill...
