This is the ultimate question for us book readers. How much money are we willing to pay for our addictions?
I'm a frugal person overall and I like to be cheap. But I do have my moments of wanting to splurge. Books are one addiction I sometimes will indulge in spending money on them.
I love Amazon freebies. They are a hit or miss, but I like 'em. However, there are times the book I want isn't free or at the library or I just simply do not want to wait for it.
For ebooks I'll spend maybe no more than 10 bucks. A hard or paper copy, I'll spend up to 30 bucks depending on how much I want it. Generally, I try to buy all my books 10 bucks or less. I love used books and that is my go-to.
Now, audiobooks I don't like to buy at all. I have Audible where I get one freebie a month. I also tacted on the Romance Package that allows me countless amounts of books for free. The catch is that I do not get to keep them and I can only have 10 at a time. So when I'm done listening, I'll remove it from my library and replace it. It's perfect.
Overall, I'll go for free first and then depending on how much I want the book will determine how much I'm willing to spend on it.
Here are a couple of paintings I've done recently. :)
