What I acquired this month:
none! I am being so good! Getting a lot of books from the library. However, a friend was at Winter Institute last weekend and she's sending me a giant box of books so my acquisitions will be very different for next month (although hopefully all free and I'll still be staying in my budget of zero.)

You had a great month. I see a couple I recognise. Where'd You Go Bernadette I enjoyed and you remind me that I have The Gilded Hour sitting on my shelf waiting, having been bought a good year at least ago! All the best, the box of books arriving sounds exciting!

The Gilded Hour has been on the stacks for awhile now. Have a great month of reading.
