    Your book buying habit is excellent! Thank you for sharing it – I’m guessing the flurry of buying in January is spending those lovely Christmas book tokens you’re given?

    Yay! I love this!! Though some of the figures look a little high for some months and stores, when you shop local or independent that’s bound to happen, and your reading tastes will definitely affect overall cost. When I read more contemporary and commercial fiction my spend was lower, whereas reading specialist or non-fiction books will usually push it up. I’m super impressed by you tracking charity shop spend too! You’ve inspired me to do the same this year, so we’ll see what next year’s results look like! I’m not sure why I love analysing my annual spend so much, but it’s a trend I’m hoping to keep doing 🙂 R xx

      I’ve made a right habit of keeping hold of my book receipts. And having an accountant on hand did help with the input and analysis of numbers! I’ll look forward to your 2018 round up if it’s to include charity shop spends!

    Wow… I’m just marvelling at the graph! 8)
    I’ve tried to keep track of my spend for a few years (also inspired by Rachel) and even though my quantity of books is worrying I am generally happy with my average book spend. I generally buy from Wordery, Book Depository, Waterstones or charity shops – I think my purse would be in trouble if there was a good independent nearby too.
    Love the post! 🙂
