That and other good deals. I'm such a victim of sales, but did restrict at least purchases to favorite authors (though mostly audiobooks). I'm getting more reading in by reading about 20 - 30 minutes after getting into bed. My elderly, getting blind, sick cat seems to enjoy the glow-in-the-dark. She settles in bed as soon as I start it. The other bed cats wander in later and no fights over whose space is whose.

Wow! Congratulations! Great achievement.

I keep treading water, which is a little disappointing but not dire. I finished my purchases through February and thought I could hold my March purchases to two books, one of which I’m reading and the other which I would read shortly, but a sale price on a book late in a series which never goes on sale was compelling. This also means I won’t make my goal of reading all my purchases this year, but if I can read everything but this one book, I’ll consider it a success. (It’s not a series where order is vital, so if I feel like keeping to the letter as well as the spirit of the rule, maybe I’ll read it at that. I hope Jon isn’t looking.)

Of the 17 books I've bought this year, I've now read all but two. And those are both £0.99 purchases of books in series where I haven't got to that book yet.

I'm planning on not buying anything this month except Analog and Asimov's towards the end of the month. And even those two I might decide to leave until some time in May.

I’ve bought eight books so far this year and have read five, am reading a sixth, leaving my two most recent purchases unread. My TBR is down 11, if I can count WIPs.

I always plan not to buy any books, but I stumble when a wishlist books goes on sale. However, needing to read the book in the near future has led me to trim my wishlist, which is good. Mostly my wishlist books don’t go on sale, so I’m pretty safe; most of my stumbles this year have been open promotions, where it was an opportunity to get a book that never does go on sale. As long as I read it, no regrets. (Except for one book that I ended up not liking very much.)

I’m going to be able to resist the current Kindle promotion of spending $20 on ebooks to get a $5 ebook credit. I still have $18.01 to go after my series purchase. .

A need to economise at this time has also helped.
