Kirin Current physical TBR: 243 books
Goal by the end of 2018: 200 books

Alright. For this book buying ban, I will be doing the page count version. I think, and hope, this will be more encouraging for me to get through more of my books before I buy more. For every 1000 pages I read, I will earn 1 book. (Library books will not count for this)

Books bought since January 2018: 89 equating to 39,319 pages
Books read since June 30, 2018: 43 equating to 14,923 pages
*I have two trackers that I use. My goodreads reading challenge is a way for me to track the manga I read online; whereas the second tracker I use keeps track of the physical books I read (where I’m pulling my numbers from)*

I owe 24,396 pages as of June 30, 2018.

Starting from July 2018, I will be doing a monthly tracking method, meaning I will only (tragically/hopefully) be purchasing books once a month.
