In these, I use the Barnes and Noble website's current price listing for the format in which I read the book. I count any books I purchased in 2013 towards the "amount spent" but I do not count any books purchased prior to 2013. I've also added the $50 yearly membership fee for the Free Library of Philadelphia to my "spent on books" total.
Retail cost of books I read: $2160.13
Amount I spent on books I read: $85.19
Amount I saved by reading books I bought in previous years, review copies, and library copies: $2074.94 I've shocked even myself with that one!
Interestingly enough, this year I read more ebooks than print books (hardback and paperback combined).
Review copy from publisher/publicist: 12
Purchased in 2013: 6
Already owned: 7
Free Library of Philadelphia: 55
Review copy from TLC tours: 19
An overwhelming majority of my books read this year came from FLP - which means the $50 I spent on my membership has been totally worth it.
How about you, Reader Friends? Anyone have reading statistics to share?
