#BookBloggerHop | How Many Books Do You Buy Per Month?

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.

How many books do you buy per month?

(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

Each month I get two Fairy Loot books: one YA Fantasy and one Adult-level Fantasy. So I buy at least those two books every month.

I also get a few sales emails:

  • Bookbub (everyday) – where books are free up to $2.99/each
  • I think it’s Simon & Schuster that sends me a “You can’t sleep?” email with sales. I think that’s probably once per week.
  • Apple Books has a sale, I guess, monthly.

If there’s a book for sale that I had been wanting, I go ahead and buy. I try to be very selective, though, because who knows when I will have a chance to read it.

So, if I had to guess, I would say I typically buy 2-5 books per month.

  1. Some months I hardly buy any, some months I go on a bit of a spree 😂 I try to be selective too, and often I postpone a purchase until the book’s on sale or I know I’ll have time to read it immediately.

  2. This is a tough one! I don’t buy a lot of books because of my robust library and books I get for review. But I also subscribe to BookBub emails and others and occasionally get either a freebie or something for $.99. However, I’ve a few Indie auto read authors (reviews posted the last two weeks for one of them) and that’s about one a month. I also have an Audible subscription so that would be the equivalent of one audiobook a month.

    Good question!

  3. Because of NetGalley, significantly less, lol. I also get the emails from BookBub and Simon and Schuster, and if there’s a book for sale I’ve been wanting, I’ll buy it. Maybe 1-2 per month if that many. I’ve got so many others waiting for me!

    1. me too! I shouldn’t be buying any and I know this logically but I just can’t seem to help myself 🙂 I’m in awe of your restraint.

  4. I can’t stop myself from going with the full 3 books every month at Book of the Month. After that it’s usually based on my stress levels and money situation (and Kindle deals). It can vary from like those three and nothing to five or a point where I just stop counting 🙂

  5. I don’t buy books every month. I buy 3 or 4 times a year and more specifically when I’m getting better deal, more discounts. But if I have to make a yearly count, I must be buying 20-25 books a year.

  6. What a question! I have two book subscriptions (Authentic Books and Book of the Month), so baseline is two. But I usually end up grabbing another couple if there’s a sale or something piques my interest!

  7. I do not do subscriptions, so it depends on what I am looking for. I have been getting 2 to 3 audiobooks a month, probably the same in kindle books. That is normal for me. I also buy secondhand books, but that is not regular, it is usually fundraising events and I have been known to walk out with 20 or more books. I also buy a couple of children’s books a month for my grandkids. So, that means 6 to 9 a month.
