My Kindle is costing me!!! - mummycool1 - 04 Aug 2018 01:17 PM

Since I've had my Kindle I've read a lot more than I used to and I've always been a big reader, but I have found that having a Kindle and being on FB is costly! I have a terrible habit of seeing book ads flash up, just 99p they scream at me, I go off to read the blurb and that's that, another book. Just this last week I've bought 7 new books, great I may hear you say but then I have 15 in my current/to read next folder and 90 in my new unread folder. I have 2 on pre-order and there are 3 I'm waiting for to drop in price from 2 of my favourite authors who I always buy their series. I've made a pact with hubby yesterday not to buy any more until I've read a good chunk of the books I have already, so I've had to hide all the book pages and book ads on FB. Trouble is it's not just ones I've signed up to follow, it's ads because they know I buy books and then sometimes also an author I follow will 'like' a book and up it pops!! 
Anyone feel like there should be a 'Books Anonymous'?? My name is Gilly and my last book purchase was yesterday at 12.30.
