Purchases of the Month

For some reason, all the content from this page has disappeared. Apparently I can't get it back and to be honest, the idea of replacing everything feels tiring. I do wish I could know why this happened in the first place, though.

I'll try to replace the lists of this year but I'm afraid I won't re-write everything since 2010.  :(
