End of the Month Round Up (September)

Update on the Month I feel that there really isn't much to update on this month...we went to London for my Dad's birthday and that's pretty much it!

Costs of the Month 

So this is basically the amount I should have spent on books, and the amount I actually did spend. I am ridicolously grateful for the existance of Netgalley and Review Copies it must be said! The prices I use is for the kindle edition of a book unless it isn't available or I read a paperback copy.


Year Total £826.53£104.73
January £82.18£5.45
February £91.17£18.83
March £90.41£5.95
April £70.64£14.35
May £92.95£11.15
June£66.36£6.63
July£149.59£12.96
