End of the Month Round Up (May)

Quite honestly the fact that it is the end of May is just weird! I can't believe that we're so far through 2015 already! As normal this is my challenge update and an update of the books that I've read in May 2015

Costs of the Month

This year I've been keeping a bigger track of what I am spending, and what I should have been spending, on books. It's mostly for curiosity but I have been quite shocked so far by what I've actually managed to save!
