The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
Topic Run Dates: May 21st – 27th, 2021
Do you have a monthly/yearly budget for books? Or are you a “what’s a book budget?” kind of reader? (submitted by Nicci @ Sunny Buzzy Books)
I do not have a budget set for books. In my day-to-day, I budget my money into different sections (general living, bills, food, pets, and fun – I think that is all of them). Essentially, books are included in my “fun” fund. I can buy as many as I want within that amount, but it would mean less money for other items like buying new clothes, video games, etc.
That being said, there have been times where I’ve thrown my budget completely out the window and just went on a spending spree and bought tons of books, but I try to at least act like the responsible adult I should be and minimize those times as much as possible.
How about you? What you have a budget for books?

I’m pretty bad at this. I attempt book buying bans. I enlist my friends to tell me not to prevent me from buying books. It never works. I budget well for everything else but when it comes to books, it’s as though I have no self-control. I try not to overspend but there are some months where too much good stuff is coming and my mouse just can’t control it self–it just clicks away. I need to be better…a lot better!
“I try to at least act like the responsible adult” 🤣🤣🤣.
Books are counted as a necessity, surely? I don’t have a fixed budget but I do try to not overspend on them.
