Showcase Sunday #70 - Why I Shouldn't Post Book Hauls Once a Month

Showcase Sunday is hosted by the fabulous Vicky at Books, Biscuits and Tea and is all about sharing our new books - beg, borrowed or bought.

So it's been a month since I last posted a book haul.  Partly from laziness but also from guilt - I've started to feel terrible about how much I spend every month on books.  Not because I'm sacrificing important things like food or heating for it, but more because I was starting to get paranoid that people thought I was showing off.  Therefore today is a purge of my guilt - I'm lucky that I can afford to buy books when I feel like it, so I shouldn't feel guilty.  Something for me to work on - and please feel free to skip this post if you don't want to see the real impact of my habit for whatever reason!
