Hello! The day has come! As of December 25th, my buying ban is complete! I succeeded in it, buying only the two books I specified at the beginning of the ban (The Monster Baru Cormorant and Wotakoi volume 3) and two books for buddy reads (Robin Hobb books) that were read right away and therefore didn’t add to the TBR. So! On December 26th, I went to the bookstore, and I went a bit nutso.
This haul is the four books I obtained over the ban, the one graphic novel I got for Christmas and the… nine books I picked up as soon as the ban was over. 😀
This is (almost) all of them! AREN’T THEY BEAUTIFUL.
This is the one thing I got for Christmas this year: Saga volume 9, by Brian K Vaughan. It’s the one book I forgot to include in the above photo. Oop.
Chew volumes 3 and 4 by John Layman and Rob Guillory. Got these for half price, too!
An Ember in the Ashes and A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir. I read the first a long time ago and loved it. Finally got around to picking up a copy. So yay, only one of them will go on my unread list.
And that’s it! Now that the build-up of UGH I NEED TO BUY BOOKS is out of my system, my buying should revert to… 4 per month. Ish. Wish me luck, hawhaw. It’s so satisfying to be able to buy books again.
