Webscriptions tells me that I've spent the rather scary total of US$1596 there. I've bought every "Webscription" package since they opened for business, plus most of the "bundles", too .

Ya'll have me beat by a mile. And I consider myself a very avid and rapid reader, of course the library gets a lot of my trade..........

Can't beat Harry but my Baen total is $426. That plus about $300 at Fictionwise and maybe another $200 other places Plus pbooks and library. All since about 2000.

I currently have more "unread" books than ever before.

Well I've only been buying ebooks since November 07 so I'm sure many of you have spent a lot more, but I just added mine up & it's kinda frightening...

Fictionwise $1,011.04
Books On Board $133.82
Baen $55.00
Simonsays $27.65
ebooks.com $16.98

...of course my dead tree expenditures have been almost nil since I started buying ebooks.

I think I've spent $7 or $8 at Sony's store too.

Is that right, you've spend almost $1500 on books in 6 months? That's about $250 a month on books.

Wow... I just checked my expenditures. Since getting my Cybook in January, I've spent $664.42 at BooksOnBoard (not even counting the $163.32 I've gotten and spent in Rewards dollars). At least it's on books and not crack...
