Easter 2019 Weekend Book Haul

It’s Easter weekend, which means plenty of things including time off work, loads of chocolate and plenty of fun. My family have always been big on spending Easter weekend together, and this year has been no exception! On Easter Sunday me and my family took a trip to Buxton to do some book shopping.

Birthday Book Haul – Feburary 2019

I’ll give myself any excuse to buy books, and February’s was that my birthday is actually in February. I also wanted to stop doing regular book hauls (as of right now i’m on a ban anyway) so this is just an accumulation of the books that i got around the time of my birthday.

As soon as we got invited, we jumped on the chance to go. The following day, we also had our semi-regular meeting with the Manchester Bloggers group. It was an incredibly bookish weekend.

The month started with Bookshop Day and ended with some exciting author events, a perfect excuse to make a few book purchases.

London Book Haul

I said some time ago that i was aiming to be on a book buying ban for a while. YALC is a very big book buying experience, so i wanted to avoid buying books for a few months while i had chance to catch up on some reading. That clearly did not happen. I’d had this tripped to London planned for months, Hamilton was the main reason that i went, but my partner had never been in a Foyles or explored the book shops of London. So naturally we went to do just that.
