I would like to preface this post with, this is more of an annual leave book haul. It had been planned that on my annual leave from work, i’d explore the book shops i hadn’t been in for months, and try and regain a little sanity in the real world again. Natually, i bought too many books.Continue reading “The Book-Ban Book-Haul”
As we’re all still technically in lockdown, i have officially been in the house for the whole of May. I thought this would help with my book buying habits, but it didn’t really. I’ve half been buying books because it helps me get through being at home, and half been strict with myself because i want to get some books from my backlist read.
I’ve been saying for months i won’t be getting any more books, and to be fair, there wasn’t a book haul last month! But recent world events mean that i’ve caved and got a small book haul to see me through the next few months.
Happy book haul! I’ve been on a little bit of a buying ban for a while – i say a while, i really mean it’s been about six weeks – and i’m back with another haul, a haul that definitely shouldn’t have been a haul. I was determined to not buy books, read from my back list and be really good at the moment. That hasn’t happened and i’m back in a tricky place with my TBR and the fact that it’s huge.
I hope everyone had lovely Christmases, and got all the books that they were hoping for! This year wasn’t a proper Christmas for us, from a lot of outside factors going on, but i’m making up for it now that Christmas is over by doing all the fun things possible. I got a couple of books as gifts for Christmas, and also got myself a couple of presents (because why not), so i wanted to share my most recent purchases with you!
A little while ago, one of my best friends Charlotte came to stay with us to celebrate Lois’ birthday. It was a weekend of friends, food and book shopping, including a little bit of paint a pot, and it was absolutely lovely. I picked up a couple of books that weekend so figured it was worth a small haul.
It’s been a rough week, and it’s Tuesday. I’ve had a lot happen over the last few days, and my mood has admittedly not been the best, so i jumped on the chance of hanging out with some bookish friends yesterday to do some book shopping!
