Thanks for the welcome!
Yes, free books don't count. I read that on page one of this thread. But I am not sure if it works for me. They make my TBR list longer even if they are free.
On the other hand... as long as I don't spend money, it really doesn't matter. They don't use much space on my computer, and most of these free books are not the ones that are always free, but just for one or a few days...
I haven't read through all the pages here, so sorry if someone else came up with that... but I guess for next year I have to budget my shopping for books. I was thinking about buying myself gift cards for each month, 10 EUR each. I don't have to spend it all in one month, but no more than that!
