September Book Ban - Three Week Status

Another week down and no books purchased! :D Had a close call the other day when I was passing the thrift store, which is like a Haven of Inexpensive Paperbacks (Cue angelic singing) or better known as my DANGER ZONE. But I didn't go in. I was strong.

So here's the updated tally of books read this month:
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
The Haunting of Hill House
Angels, Sinners & Madmen (Review Book & Smut-tember eligible)
The Reapers are the Angels (Review Book)
The Bride (for Smut-tember)
Star Wars: Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina
Gentle Warrior (For Smut-tember)
and I'm working my way through The House of The Spirits.

I'm pretty happy about this. This year I've been averaging about 9 books a month, and I've already met that for this month, and I still have a week left.

Unfortunately, I've very recently formed an addiction to Pawn Stars on Netflix. By "recently" I mean on Saturday night, and by "addiction" I mean that I've watched all of the first season and half of the second since then. This is seriously cutting into my reading time. But I just love it. It's like the BAMF version of Antiques Roadshow! :D

So... that's my update for this week. One more to go, and then I will have succeeded in my goal. Pretty sweet. My birthday is this Friday, which also happens to be payday (DANGER! DANGER!) so we'll see if I can make it through my very own Book Ban Hell Week without caving... Wish me luck! :D

  1. WTG! That's pretty impressive! My problem isn't buying new books (although I LOVE that) so much as going to the library. I'm definitely a library junky!!
