This month I’m doing things a little differently. I’m will do two posts – one for my June book haul and the other for the June wrap up and July TBR
I am trying to knock books off that ever-growing TBR pile. However it does not seem to be working as will be evidenced when you see my June book haul.
A couple of months ago I decided to take drastic measures.
- Book buying ban for the remainder of the year (the library is your friend)
- Unhaul unread monthly TBR
I’ve done semi-well with the plan, but June was a colossal FAIL. We had employee appreciation; whcih means I had to pick up a few things. And without further adieu.

I love the Canturbury Classics Word Cloud editions and when I saw these at BookCon, I couldn’t pass them up. And the price was fantabulous.
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
- Don Quioxte by Miguel de Cervantes
Every time I go into a used bookshop, I say “Don’t buy to much.” And every time, I walk out with much more than I planned. This particular day I went in to see the condition of The Count of Monte Cristo they put on hold for me and then . . . silly, silly me decided to peruse the stacks.
Well, well, well. Here’s what I found.
