All the Books I Bought in 2019 // Book Haul

This year I set a challenge for myself to not buy any books. I was only allowed to read books I already owned or borrowed from the library. There was a 5 book freebie. Unfortunately, I did not accomplish this goal. BUT, I definitely purchased far fewer books than I have any previous year.

I tried only to purchase books that I absolutely wanted, not just impulse buys.

In total, I bought 23 books. To some, this may seem like a lot, to others it may not seem like much at all. To me, it was at least half of what I bought in the last two years, so I consider that a win.

I won’t tell you my goals for 2020 yet (that post is coming soon), but I will be trying to keep my number low again.

Now for the books:
