I’m never very good at these, but let’s see what I can do… I’m joining in this challenge from Chapter Break. I don’t think I’d make it the whole year without buying books (in fact, I know I wouldn’t), so I’m choosing the “set a budget” option…
- 51+ already owned books read
- Stick to budget of 10% income spent on books
I went for a percentage rather than a fixed thing so that if I get a windfall I can splash out, and if I’m having a short month, I am correspondingly reined in. (For the curious, 10% is also the amount I tithe to charities; 20% or more goes into my savings.)
Wish me luck…

Awesome – you’re joining in 🙂 I think your budget sounds really sensible so hopefully the company will help you stick to your goals. Good luck!
Hopefully! I’m kind of terrible about just wanting all the books ever right away… Thanks!

Good luck to you too, then!
Thanks! You know me well enough to know how much I need it, ha.
Welcome to the challenge 🙂 Great goals – I like the percentage idea.
Thanks! I’m trying to think in terms of percentages with all my budgeting, really; keeps it in line with what I’m actually earning!
