My 99p eBook Haul or Don't Look at Books When You Have Had a Bad Week!

The Witchfinder's Sister - Beth Underdown The Roanoke Girls: A Novel - Amy Engel Sometimes I Lie - Alice Feeney Our Endless Numbered Days - Claire Fuller Yellow Crocus - Laila Ibrahim We Were Liars - E. Lockhart The Light of the Fireflies - Simon Bruni, Paul Pen Carrion Comfort - Dan Simmons Black Hills - Dan Simmons

So, a while back I promised myself I wouldn't succumb to the £0.99 temptation and I would only buy reduced books if they were on my tbr. Well, I was doing really well until...I had a bad week. Let's face it, other people buy shoes and handbags when they feel they need a boost but we buy books. Not that I need them, my physical bookshelves are full to bursting - I have had to start storing books in a (dangerous) third row as two deep just doesn't hack it - my kindle is full of freebies and deals I never will read and even my kobo, which I swore faithfully to myself would mainly be used to borrow books from overdrive, is slowly filling up with unread (but very good and mostly cheap) books. What can I say? I stand up now and confess:

"My name is Julie, I'm a bookaholic" (but I can stop anytime I like, it's just I have these books reserved at the library...)

 

Edit: I might as well go the whole hog and buy two more. I've added Carrion Comfort and Black Hills to my Kobo, I like Dan Simmons and I've wanted to read them for a while, I'm ruined anyway.

 

Oh dear, I'm depressed now, I wonder what's on offer at Amazon...
