KEEPING TRACK: MY BOOKS PURCHASED & READ

As we reach the end of the month, with more than half the year over, it might be time to look back at my purchases for the year…and evaluate my progress.

I did cut down on spending in some of the months, and I’ve read and reviewed quite a few books from my purchases.  But…overall, here’s how it looks, by month.  To see the overview, click on Books Purchased – 2018.  The books read are linked to the reviews.

January:  14                               10

July:      10                                    1

Books Purchased in 2018:           68

Books Read & Reviewed from these Purchases:  35

***              

I’ve read books from other years as well, and a few review books along the way.  So my reading totals are not as light as these numbers reveal.  My total books read for the year so far:

88 books, counting the ones I’ve read so far in July.

Do you keep track of your purchases?  Do you enjoy taking a look at your progress?  How is your year shaping up so far?

  1. I do like the idea of keeping track of the books I buy and I did for the last couple of years! But not this year. I am really cutting down on review books though so that is going to give me an opening to get some of my own books read.

  2. No, I’m too scared to keep track of all the books I use my husband’s money to purchase. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Although….I seldom use actual cash to buy books, usually points accumulated from our credit card or gift cards. And I snagged three great reads (they are in like-new condition) from our local used bookstore for a total of $1.60!! I can’t justify spending a lot of money on books because I have way too many in my home library that haven’t been read yet. My pragmatic self talking. 😉
    You’re a reading machine!! 😊
