Books I bought this half term (27/03/15 – 12/04/15)


So as you can see, I’ve bought a lot of books this half term. I’ve recently been visiting charity shops quite often and their books are not only extremely cheap but most of them are in good condition. I added up the price of these books and it came to £12.44 and with that money I could only buy one book and there wouldn’t be enough left for me to buy another one and out of all of these 18 books; 3 weren’t bought from charity shops, 3 have cracked spines and most of them look new. I decided that I would stock up on books before the summer as I’m, sadly, not going anywhere which means 6 weeks of staying at home along with some exercise. I’ve basically planned out what I’ll be doing this summer, read read and ever more reading. I’m kidding, I’ll probably be doing some exercise as well since I need it. I’ll probably also be painting as that’s one of my other hobbies. Anyhow I decided to buy a ton of books to read this summer and I am so excited for it! The reading, that is.

In order from left to right and top to bottom.
