Tongue Got a bit bored!!!!!

Decided that as I really need to keep a record of the books I have bought set up a spreadsheet (toldd you I was a bit bored)

The outcome is that I really need help!

I have bought/downloaded since July 2011 - 173 books of these only 30 were free, I really thought I had more that were free.

The total cost of these books was £310.84 roughly £2.17 per book

Now if I had bought these for around £5.00 per book (an average price) I would have spent £715.00

So I have SAVED around £400.00

Just of now to spend that £400.00 that I did not know I had Thumbs Up

Does the same logic apply to shoes, I wonder?

You have 173 books and an extra £400 to spend, I have just over 500 books, so I wonder how much surprise cash I have to go out and spend this afternoon? Thumbs Up

Don't think my other half would agree with you somehow though. Smile

You've inspire me to think about my own spreadsheet! Smile Maybe for my wine consumption? Although that might be a bit scary.

Just looked and my recent (paper) book purchases average out at £14 each... £239 for 17 books! Most of those were nature books though and a some were £30-35 each. Haven't factored in my free ebooks though, I wouldn't have paid money for them in any case and if I did include those then I might as well factor in the books I borrowed from the library, which would have cost me a fair few hundred quid as they're ones that are hard to get hold of and very collectable!

I was bored this weekend... I joined goodreads and ended up spending a lot of time adding books to their database. Trying to make sense of the entries for the hundred-plus New Naturalist books today as I want to organise them into the series - have made a fair start:

http://www.goodreads.com...

Haven't really added any ebooks though, just the few I've actually read and the solitary one that I paid money for (albeit only 20p!). Mainly using it for my paper books, I'll just add the ebooks as and when I read them.

Oh Linda - wish I could buy lots of shoes - bad feet and am stuck with awful shoes which have to be very wide - not much fashion in that dept.

But love a good handbag - even though I rarely carry one, I have a wonderful collection!!!!!

Actually, me too. I have no high heels and have to wear blokes shoes to get bthem wide enough, and flat enough. I struggle with court shoes, thogh it's not so bad now they come in bigger sizes. I hate feeling uncomfortable.

Mind you, I do havce lots of pairs of sghoes, thy're just not very glamorous. I buy them if they're reasonable and above all, comfortable. In fact, if I find a really good style I buy two pairs.
