Just a suggestion, if some of your books are priced reasonably, it's not a bad idea to go ahead and get the ones you really really want. I too had a list in the beginning and I had jotted down the prices current at that time. A few weeks later many of those books were up to 9.99.
I understand about them adding up quickly. I was shocked when I finally sat down one day and added up how much I had spent. I finally started a spreadsheet to help keep track. Like you, I try to stay under 5.00 if I can. But sometimes books in a series, such as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, are around 7.00. I've been picking up one or two here and there before they go to 9.99.
