  1. Congrats on the new job!
    Good month for books! Happy 2015 reading!

  2. I think you did nicely, especially since you had a break in there as well. :)

  3. Congratulations on the job! It's always exciting to have money to buy books. :) And I still need to continue on with the Gail Carriger series!! BOTH of her series, for that matter!
