Book Haul #62: Quite a Haul

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve done this. A whole two months or so, actually, which means this haul will be pretty long.

Book Haul #60: Birthday Haul!!… kinda

I got books! 😀 I’ve also ran out of space, so I have no idea where I will place the overflow. I hate stacking them on the floor. For the rest of the year, I’m going to try my hardest to stop buying new books and instead read the ones I already have and get rid of any I absolutely hate and will never read to free up some space.

There.

I said it.

I MUST do it.

Book Haul #58: From Old Year to New

Umm…so it’s been a while since I’ve done a book haul and I hadn’t even noticed. Of course that doesn’t mean that I stopped buying books (if only). I’ve just been busy the past couple months and didn’t have time to post my book hauls (or anything else) on Instagram, which is what I use to alert myself to do a book haul on here. Smh, I’m behind on so many things.

So this might seem like a large haul (kinda), but it’s only because I hadn’t posted one of these since October.

Book Haul #57: Two or Three Goodies for this Fangirl

Time for another bookhaul… exactly one month later. And for me, this is a great one because there are two books in here that I’m beyond excited to have, and one I got at an outing that I was beyond excite to attend.

These are the three I’m most grateful for:

Book Haul #56: Small Press Expo 2019

I’m so proud of myself… and a little disappointed too.

I attended the Small Press Expo (SPX) earlier in September. It’s a comic book expo for independent publishers and creators that I’ve been attending since 2016 (didn’t go in 2018 — I was probably sick). I’ve enjoyed myself every year that I’ve attended, but I’ve yet to make it to any of the seminars!

In past years, I missed the seminars because I got distracted by the showroom floor. I’d spend hours there buying books and prints. This year, however, I got to the event late because I had to work before attending, so I missed most of the seminars and was too exhausted to attend the remaining ones.

Unlike the previous two years I attended, I didn’t buy everything I saw and overspend this time. 🙂 That’s why I’m so proud of myself. I had a budget and only went over it by $50. I consider that a success. 😀

But I am a little disappointed because there were SOOOO many things I wanted but had to prevent myself from getting because I wanted to stick to my budget. So although I was excited to attend the event and enjoyed myself while there despite my exhaustion, I was a little sad because I didn’t get everything I wanted. I may have sulked a bit like a little kid. (Lol!)

But I consider this event a success because some of the comics I hauled are ones I really, REALLY wanted, AND I got them signed!! 😀 Of course, I picked up a few prints as well. You can see them on my IG here. I’ll only focus on the books in this post.

Book Haul #55: No Library Books This Time

I haven’t posted a book haul since July. I’d sworn off acquiring more books because of the huge pile of them I got at the ALA conference that surpassed the available space on my shelves, so they’re still in bags on the floor waiting for a home. That made me feel bad, so I told myself “No More Books!” But, of course, I didn’t listen to myself. So here’s what I got:

Hold up.

Before I show the books, I just need to say that for someone who ran out of shelf space, I’m surprised that I acquired no library books and just one e-book. Not even lack of space is a deterrent for me buying more books. Smh. I will get a handle on this soon though.
