A few posts ago I made a declaration that I wasn't going to by any more books until I read 5 from the TBR pile. Of course this was the middle of April when there weren't any that I immediately wanted so it was much easier to say that.
But now we are into May and there are four books that I really want - really, really bad. Books I'm panting after. There are more than that but these ones I just HAVE to HAVE.
Wait a minute you're thinking - doesn't she already have The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie???
Well - yes, I do - but mine is an ARC copy and there might have been a few small changes and the one I have doesn't have in instep cover and I really want an instep cover.
So here's where we are at. I am just about done the 4th book in my own personal challenge. The only thing is that 2 are actually rereads - not from the TBR pile. I think I can get a fifth one in before these are 'officially' released.
For two of these - Hard and Fast and Daring Time - they are 24 % less expensive ordering them online then buying them in the store. But in order to get free shipping - which is quite a bit if you pay for it - I have to spend a certain amount. By purchasing all these books, I save myself quite a bit of money - but it would mean reading a total of 20 books. That's a whole lot of books to read now that it's May
As for To Beguile a Beast - I love Elizabeth Hoyt and I've been (im)patiently waiting for this one for a while and it helps make up the free shipping total.
So question one - do rereads count towards the total?
Second question, do I get them all in one shot to save the money but break my own challenge - or am I just doing a most excellent job of justifying?
All thoughts and opinions welcome - keeping in mind I really, really, really want all four of these books.
