Reading Challenge and Book Buying Ban Update.

Mel and Mel’s Books and Info is doing a challenge to read books you already own in August.  So you can’t buy any more books, you can’t get them from the library, you can’t borrow them from your friends.  You read books already on your shelf.  Since I’m overwhelmed with books, and I’m on a book buying ban so this works for me. 

I also want to update you on my book buying ban.  I did great for July and I did my preorder’s for August so I’m going to go for this.  No buying books unless I get a 40% off coupon or I find them for $3 or less.  I can buy for my contests also.  ALSO I have a book signing on the 9th and since I don’t actually own any of Richelle Meads books then I’ll have to buy some.  I’m not going to set my terms for that day because I don’t know what my money situation will be.  I don’t think I’ll have much, so besides my book for giveaway I’ll probably only buy one or two.  It’ll depend on if there are any used copies as well.  These terms are for August only.  I’ll reevaluate and set new terms in September.
The Book Buyer’s Anonymous is a challenge hosted by 25 hour books.  Go check it out!  Both of these challenges have bribes  prizes, as well.

  1. I wish I could do that too! There’s just too many library book sales coming up and I’m going to a book festival next month. I’ll try it towards the end of the year!

  2. That’s an awesome idea. It’s so weird how I have a ton of books on my shelf that need to be read yet I still buy books and go to the library to stock up all the time. I’ve cut back on buying novels for a little while now. I only allow myself 1-2 books per month.

  3. I think I will have to drop by Book Buyers Anonymous. This month is going to be a real challenge for me. I have already been tempted!
