Follow Friday #4

Friday, November 12, 2010


I am loving this Follow Friday as I have found lots of amazing blogs through it.  Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.  ParaJunkee also asks us follower's to answer a question each week, so today's question for the follow is:

What is your usual monthly book budget?

I have to admit I am a book addict and my usual budget is between $100 to $200 (AUD).  It is a lot but books are very expensive here.  Usually between $20-$25 a book.  I am trying to it cut down to but there are just too many good releases lately.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Make sure to leave a comment and follow so I can return the favour.

Hopping through and now following you! Wow, I wish I had enough money to buy that many books! My college student budget will now allow for it.

i love book addicts. i'm more of a library girl. but you make me feel better about my occasional splurges :)

plus - books are expensive here, hey? $200 wouldn't go far...

I wish I had a library nearby. I live about 45 mins from the city and it just too far to travel for books. I suppose if I shopped more at The Book Depository I would save $100 as their books are usually half the price :)

Whoa! That's amazing. But, you've obviously got more money than I am. If I actually worked, I'd probably be buying at least 10 books a month, too. :P Yeah, Nomes... $200 for 12 books. And people in the US can get 12 books for $40 through Amazon. Really makes you think, doesn't it? Heh.

Hi! I found you throught the hop, and I'm now following. I really love your blog, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of it. How are you finding The DUFF so far? I really enjoyed it :)

Books here are relatively cheaper, but I don't buy them all the time since I'm still in college. There are times though (like when I'm all sad or accomplished or just feel like it) when I go on book binges and spend a lot haha. Not that I regret them one bit! :)

Have a great weekend!

Book budget? What's a book budget?

Seriously, I don't have one. I don't keep on buying books until I hit
bankruptcy but neither do I hold myself back from buying a book that really
speaks to me.

I exercise a fair amount of fiduciary responsibility but nothing so formal
as to be called a book budget.

TGIFF!

Thank God It's Follow Friday!

Thanks for stopping by my place, Nic. I have a feeling that if I lived in Australia, my book budget would be less than that. LOL. Especially at that price. I may write YA, but I'm addicted to adult romance books. Are those expensive, too?

hi there! Thanks for stopping by my book blog, my kozy korner, and saying hello from the hop! that sucks that books are so expensive for you! Thanks for following and I'm your newest follower as well. have a great weekend!

Nic @ Irresistible Reads said...

Thanks for all the comments!

@Gemini Widsom - Adult romance books generally are a little cheaper as we have more available so $15-$20 a book.

@Ginger & Erika - Have just finished The DUFF and it was awesome :)

Susan said...

I've come by before, but now I'm an official follower. Yay!

I really don't pay that much attention to how much I spend on books, especially since most of what I read these days comes either from publishers or from the library. So, when I see a book I want to buy, I usually just do it :)

Maidenveil said...

Hi, Nic! Old follower here and just dropping by. :)

Ah, when fab books are released it's really so hard to stick with the budget! So I just ignore the budget and grab the book/s!! :)

Have a nice weekend!

stopping by to say i love your blogs it's very cute looking and well done a new follower indeed!

Noe and Suz said...

Stopping by and we are new followers!!

Jesus your book budget is high!! That sucks that they are expensive where you are, do you have a kindle? Maybe ordering some books in ebook format would help. Either way, who am I talk. Walking into a book store for me is like how a kid feels when they walk into Toys R Us. :) Have a great weekend!
