So for 2014, I decided to keep track of all the money I was spending on books/the blog. This is my breakdown. Out of the 80 books I purchased, I only read 15. (Holy Crap) and I only read 59 books this year (not meeting my goal but hey, I had a baby).

This is insane. I really, really need to do a better job on reading the books I purchase, instead of just hording them. This is a goal I will probably not accomplish, since I already have a list of books I want to but next year and I got a lot of book for Xmas, plus the shopping spree I went on at BookOutlet.com.

The scary total is at the bottom, plus I linked my reviews for the books I actually read from this list.

$456.90

Things I could have used that money on:

Textbooks for one semester
6 months of car insurance
a crib
that’s like 4 celeb photo ops at FanExpo Canada OR the cost of admission for the fiance and I for all 4 days of the convention OR about half the hotel room cost while in Toronto
3 new pairs of glasses
3 pairs of Doc Martins
6-7 pairs of Converse or Vans
snow tires for my car
new mattress
186 large cafe mochas from Tim Hortons
30 large pizzas from our regular pizza place

I mean, obviously I got some of those things anyways but I could have had more money in my savings!

So here’s to reading more but spending less in 2015!

Anyone know their totals? Please share!

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!
