The purpose of this page is to track my book tally throughout the year. While I don't want to set a goal, I'm guessing I'll have 75 books bought by the end of May 2013. Anyone care to offer their own guess? Comment below!
9/16/12: 8 books
9/20/12: 5 books and 2 antique prints
9/25/12: 6 books and 2 antique prints (inc a 1905 book on Westminster Abbey!)
9/29/12: 3 books. Alas, I have now been to all the second hand bookshops that I know of. My next source of material will come from the places I visit.
10/10/12: 4 books (bought over a few days, I forgot to update). Definitely interested in "The King's Glass" as it talks about stained glass used as a propaganda tool under the Tudors. King's College Chapel features heavily and I plan to read this before my second go around to Cambridge in two weeks.
10/13/12: Not much luck at the antique book sellers in Stratford Upon Avon, but I did get lucky at a marketplace! 4 books, a print, cd and a piece of Shakespeare's Holy Trinity Church (legally obtained mind you).
10/15/12: 2 books
10/20/12: 8 books. So excited because I picked up Agnes Strickland's magnificent series "The Queen's of England". She wrote them between 1840 and 1848 and initially totalled 12 volumes. I have the full series republished in 1875.
10/27/12: 5 books. Including a signed copy of "Bess of Hardwick".
10/28/12: 1 book. 1908.
11/22/12: 3 books.
12/2/12: 2 books.
12/8/12: 1 book.
1/23/13: 1 book.
2/2/13: 7 books. Eek! Raided some second hand bookshops in York.
2/25/13: 2 books.
3/22/13: 4 books and 2 CDs.
