    It’s always a good sign when you read more books than you bought in one month. I’m afraid to report that I read only five books, but two were really long ones: Breaking Dawn and Acheron. But still…. I think I bought more than 20. Oh man. Don’t make me go count. LOL

    It’s always a good sign when you read more books than you bought in one month.

    I’m afraid I cheated a bit. I had this 10% coupon (valid until midnight yesterday) and one hour after I posted this, I went and got me some (7) new books. I couldn’t possible let it go to waste. πŸ˜‰

    And Breaking Dawn and Acheron have probably more pages together than all the category novels I read in August, so no worry. πŸ™‚

    *gasp!* Well you sure made me feel better about my books read to books bought ratio! Good point about the total number of pages I read in August. That makes me feel better, too! I will sleep easier tonight. πŸ˜‰

    I didn’t plan on it and honestly thought I would be stronger … *sigh* But I’m glad that I could help and you feel better now! πŸ˜‰
