AKA Showcase Sunday

I love Canongate! It’s official. Lovely package arrived from them including Patrick Ness’ new novel for adults. I am so excited. Whilst it looks like I overdid the book buying this week, they were mostly ordered a couple of weeks ago with the exception of the Jo Nesbo (which was Β£2.99 in Tesco and yes I forgot to include it in the photo). So I know I don’t have the will-power to do an outright book buying ban but I have put some restrictions on what I can buy:

Tesco books of the week
Series books
Favourite authors
Wishlist books on offer too good to miss
Translated books for challenge

What I am not allowing myself to do is buy books I’ve never heard of before because they’re cheap or doing multi-buy offers. So I do really need to avoid The Works and Tesco paperback charts which make me buy multiples when I really could have managed the one. I also need to avoid getting books just because it seems the whole world and its dog is reading them.
