2014 Book Purchases: April

I always start the draft for these monthly book purchase updates at the beginning of the month. It gives me a chance to look back over the previous month and encourage myself to do better.


I already feel that I’ve spent too much money on books this month – Sad, aren’t I? :)


I’m going to have to try harder. But I’m nervous about April because it is my birth month. I always find a way to indulge myself in April…
