I finished my third book of the year a couple of days ago, which catches me up to the number of books I've bought. My TBR is breaking even.
(We'll ignore the 4 freebies. They weren't really TBR freebies. Unless I do decide to read one of them.)
I'm pretty sure the cost of the books I've read is higher than the cost of the books I've bought, but I can't really track that easily. I don't think I have records for some of the paperbacks.
