Today, I’m linking up with The Sunday Post for my monthly stats.
I’d like to say I love this number crunching time of month, but I live in a state of permanent denial about my books, so this is as much a surprise to me as everyone else.
This month I gave up the book ban and things got…interesting.
I started out with a TBR of 304.
In August I read 14 books from my TBR. I bought 8 new physical books, 5 new e books, was approved for 14 new arcs, was given one new book and borrowed 3 new books from the library.
Ted the TBR now stands at 323 books.
Physical Books: 128
Advanced Review Copies: 14
Library Books: 4

That’s me done with the numbers for August! How did your month of books go?
