Thoughts XXI : Books to buy next year...

This last year was a change for me in terms of purchasing books. I really made an effort to stop buying so many books... Next year will be better. I must gain some sense and think that spending €100 in books per month it's too much. I will try to reduce to around €50.  This will give me a average of 5/6 books per month which it's quite good.

Hardbooks only and handful will be bought and from black library I will stop buying audiobooks (ebooks never bought and will never buy) and hardback special editions will also be cutted down to the minimium. Only if a book really interest me I will buy it... but for €50 a piece is too much... Well...
