Shelf Control – New Arrivals September 2020

I have been trying to keep the number of new books down in September – telling myself multiple times that I didn’t need to visit the book store, since I already have so many great books and so little time. O, the self constraint I felt when I didn’t visit the book stores these months. However, of course some books still made their way to me, so let’s check how I did this month.

Only 1 new tree book! I am rather happy with this score, since this False Value is a book I really, really wanted to have. I am also already reading it right now, so that is good as well.

Onto my new ebooks – I only got one from Amazon, after reading a nice review of it and it was free.

I had slightly less self control with the ARCs however, so I ended up adding quite a few more than I had anticipated. However, I am really excited to be reading all of them (some I have already read). I also got two audiobooks, which were my first audiobooks from Netgalley. So far I quite like their app for the audiobooks and also the couple of graphic novels I read on it. My Adobe Digital Editions often gives problems, so far the app seems to be working nicely.

Well, these were all the books I added in the last month, but how many did I add to the TBR? Here is a breakdown of the books:

I added 13 books and read 14 books, 3 of which were new. My Mt. TBR is now one book lower than it was last month. At this pace I will not be able to finish at in my lifetime, so I hope to cut it down more next month. It is not entirely my fault though, is it? I can’t help there are so many great books being published!

How many and which books did you add last month? Have you read any of them? Which should I read first? – Let me know in the comments!

  1. YAY for all the new books 😍 I mean, yes, this may mean we may never read all the books in our possession in our lifetime BUT who knows what’ll happen! Stranger things (i.e. like this year) have happened 😉 I’ve got Vivek Oji still to read as well. Hope you enjoy all of these and happy reading 😉

    1. Yes, indeed, who knows what will happen! 😉
      Thank you! I am also very curious to hear your thoughts on Vivek Oji, I have heard so many good things about it!
      Happy reading to you too!


  2. I got a random pay rise (which is unheard of in education, I went 8 years without any pay rise…) and so accidentally bought 15 books at the start of this month. Oops.
