I was planning on writing this post at the beginning of the year, but sometimes blogging is a constantly changing task. So I’ve been posting about other things in the meantime. But now we’re here and ready to go.
2015 was the first year in which I tracked my book purchases. It makes sense if you really think about it. I have all of my books on a list in Word. I have all of the authors in an Excel spreadsheet. I have a list of the best books I’ve read. And I track how much time I spend reading. So it makes sense for me to track the number of books I buy.
I’d intended to include all of the books here, but I won’t do that. I’ll just give you some highlights instead.
I bought 37 books in 2015.
25 were bought from Half Price Books.
5 were bought from Amazon.
1 was bought from Barnes and Noble.
And Harry Potter books 3-7 were bought from a girl on an app.
7 books were new. The rest were used.
The average price of the books I bought was $3.74.
The most expensive book was The Strain at $9.34.
There were several I bought for $1.50.
Of the books bought in 2015, I’ve now read 9 of them. Welp.
That’s it. Feel free to ask me about particular titles or anything. But what I want to know is which books you bought in 2015 and how much you spent. Unless it’s $921 and you’re embarrassed. Then I understand. Ha!
