    Default "I have to buy book for my school prject which might consume almost all the money"

    Hello everyone,

    I'm writing to my friend telling him how I will spend my money which my father has just given them to me.

    I have to buy books for my school project which might consume almost all the money. The rest I might spend on fixing my laptop I currently have because my little brother unintentionally throw it on the floor.
    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.

    See my amendments above.

    May I ask a small question? Is there any verb having the same meaning as "unintentionally threw it" I mean he was holding it when it fell on the floor. Thanks a lot.
