I noticed the jump in priced at Amazon this summer so I went back and re read many of my old books author by author on Kindle and from my book shelves. It was great fun and I have many more to go. I still occasionally occasionally buy a book since have favorites I have missed or a new one I treat myself with but my book bills are down more than 60% the past 6 months. I will continue in this policy until the book prices come down, even though my book budget is quite healthy. Will donate the saved money to charity.
