2013 Book Hauls: So far, Not very bad

I’ve been trying not to buy too many books because my life can’t possibly just be all about reading. I think I did fairly okay with staying away from books this year, so far. Seven books in a couple of months is not THAT bad, yes? I mean, I did read eight books so far this year too, even if none of them were any of these books below. Oh well. Such is life.

For my Nebula reading list. I’ve been waiting for this to go on sale (I’m a poor cat), and I got it for 30% off. Woot.

I’m giving away books this month too. Partly to make space for new books, and also because it’s my birthday month and I’m feeling generous.

    1. Darden! Hi! Thanks. haha. It’s one of my greatest pleasures. Probably 60% of the reason I put up this blog was so I can take book pictures all the time πŸ™‚

  1. Hi, I have a bunch of books that I want to sell, any ideas to do this in Cebu? I tried doing bookmooch but the shipping costs both local and international are expensive.

      1. Last month my parents dumped several bags of secondhand books, my main objective is to get rid of these books because I don’t have any space. I will consider swapping several of my books for one book. Here is an initial list of books I want to get rid of or sell, there are more at my brother’s house, I can give you the list later.
