Mid-February Book Haul!

Confession: I go to the book store (almost) every week. Is that normal? Does anyone else do that?

I feel privileged to be able to afford 3-4 trips a month, trips during which I buy at least one, but usually, 2 books. I don’t know if this is financially sustainable, but I’ve been OK so far! I just have to be more frugal with groceries and things like buying clothes. That’s OK, right?

So I’ll update Read Diverse Books on the 15th and last day of every month to keep you guys caught up on my ever-growing pile of books.

Here are the ones I’ve bought in February so far:



Brick Walls – by Saadia Faruqi

Falling in Love with Homonids – by Nalo Hopkinson

Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist – by Sunil Yapa

The Book of Unknown Americans – by Cristina Henriquez








I wanted to highlight The Memory of Light by Francisco X. Stork because the cover is beautiful!

Reviews for all these books will be up….EVENTUALLY!!

Did I buy too many books?? How many have you bought so far this month?

  1. Such a good haul. I’ve been wanting to get to Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist for a while now. Also, I’ve gotten pretty reckless this month as far as book buying goes… definitely bought at least 15 books so far. Whoops.

  2. Nice haul! I tend to stick to secondhand bookshops as I can get carried away, turning into a book zombie as soon as I get through the door. Still, there are worse ways to spend your money! 🙂

    1. Lol, I love the image of the book Zombie.
      Yes, there are worse ways to spend my money and I certainly do not regret any of my purchases, as they are an investment for my home library!

      P.S. – your comments are being filed under spam for some reason. I don’t know why but this one was just waiting around for Spam check. Anyway, sorry about that.

  3. Around here, I think your book-buying habits are perfectly normal. 🙂 Also, it’s totally okay to cut down on other things in order to buy more books. I have kids, so I can’t cut down on groceries, but my clothing and shoe situation is embarrassingly minimal.
    Nalo Hopkinson has been on my list forever – I hope you like that one!

Let's start a discussion!
