That's a good list-I can't believe how many books you've bought! Most of mine are from the library.

@Bookworm: Luckily, I didn't buy all of them at once.:) I don't buy that many books, but I have a lot of unread bought books on my shelves from the times I went a little book-shopping crazy.

Wow, Lady of the Butterflies was definitely a long read!

I think maybe I should try to have an aim for the coming month. I will have a think.

Wow! What a group! I tend to go crazy at times myself...I have so many books waiting to be read that I really have no business buying anymore right now.

Poor plunging Darcy, not his month

Irena @ This Miss Loves to Read said...

@Becky: Yeah, that was a long read, but luckily it was a really good novel, so I didn't mind the length at all.

@Peppermint: Book-shopping is too addictive. I hope we can both make it without buying more.:)

@Blodeuedd: Your comment is so cool, it made me laugh.:)
