@nash: i read by mood too, which is how i got 4 books going at the moment

wait, so by how much should our TBR list be reduced before we're allowed to buy new ebooks again? because a few $0.99 ebooks are really tempting me

If any of them cost less than 75 cents, they don't count. That's almost like getting them free.

Almost-free books don't count. They're practically giving them away!
In my case, they count. I recognize that part of my issue is the freebie acquisition. Why? Because tomorrow, when I see a paid book I want, I will claim that I saved soooo much money on today's freebies... Yeah, it's part of the problem. Plus, in 6 months, I've accumulated 1200 ebooks.

10 were free, the other 25 were from the 25 cent sale. So I got 35 books for $6.25.

No, my record was set back when Kaplan had their giveaway. January 4th - 50 free ebooks downloaded that day.
That's a good deal CW ... mobi format, right? Can you share your sources with us?

Actually, the 25 cent ones are Google ebooks, so I had to alf them. That's the Unbridled Books thread in Bargains.

The other 10 free ones are Smashwords coupons - look in Bargains for a very recent "Free Horror" thread. A publisher posted with coupons for almost all of their Smashwords books.

That's right, I'm too lazy to link.

BooksOnBoard is out to get us! They just sent an email with this subject line:

"Having one of those days? Me too. Ebooks will help!"

Ack! Wonder how many will crumble at that. I almost did, but I deleted it quickly before I could be tempted to click.

Ha! Well, I joined a group pledging to cut down the purchase of yarn - now I buy more than ever. So I might as well join this one too. Good luck!

Welcome to the group, Dazrin. So you downloaded 5 freebies this week? That's all? Amateur. I got 35 books TODAY.

Sorry everyone, sometimes I get surly when I come to group. Please don't give me a time out.

Edited to add: I have no idea why I'm running to Ana for help. I guess I just think she understands my issues.
It's alright, there, there.

Also, all the free Vook books don't count. That's just preparation in case someone asks for a quick run-down of the American Revolution or whatever and you don't have Wikipedia handy.

Oh, you didn't get those? Forget I said anything, then.

No, I didn't get those because I already have them...

*sigh*

But I am feeling much better now! I'm going to go play with my new books.

Welp. I've fallen off the wagon, at least as far as free books go. I hadn't seen the horror thread until you guys pointed it out, but off I went. I'm a sucker for zombie lit. I even have Zombicorns.

Will ya'll still love me even after getting 10 new ebooks that I very much didn't need?

I'll still love you. In fact, it's kind of nice to know that you're just as weak as I am when faced with free horror.

ZOMBIE FANS UNITE!!

But you see how it works here? I talk about today's score, and Joe's all like "Where'd ya get those???" and a handful of us fall off the wagon. Again.

But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Actually you missed one then. The publisher has 11 books (one is free) and the other 10 are on the free with coupon list.
