[BHE 91] Page One Warehouse Sale Book Loot – Part 1 of 2

BHE

Myra here.

It is Sunday once again. Time for us to share the books that have found us over the past weeks or so. This is actually a much-delayed posting since I found these lovelies during the Page One Warehouse Sale during the New Year early this year. But since we’re also celebrating Chinese New Year this week here in Singapore, I thought it was quite fitting.

First Batch of Books

We were there during the very first day of the Warehouse Sale bright and early. While I was a tad disappointed that the books were not as cheap as two years back (at 1 dollar each), there were still quite a number of bargain books at 2 dollars each. As you can see from the picture above, it was like Christmas Day for me all over again.

YA Fiction

Quite a lot of Erin Hunter books. Omen of the Stars (Warriors): Sign of the Moon, Return to the Wild (Seekers): Island of Shadows, Omen of the Stars (Warriors): The Forgotten Warrior, Seekers: Spirits in the Stars.

Redwall: The Sable Queen, Redwall: Mossflower – both by Brian Jacques.

The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Volume Two by Gordon Dahlquist, The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler.

Ender in Exile by Orson Scott Card, Pyramids by Terry Pratchett. My collection of the Discworld Novels is overflowing now.

This is one of my greatest finds, I thought. Hardbound copy for two dollars. Highly Inappropriate Tales for Young People by Douglas Coupland and Graham Roumieu.

IMG_0758

Cheer! Bevan vs Evan and other School Rivalries by Zoe Evans, Secret of the Shadows by Cathy MacPhail, Overbite by Meg Cabot. My twelve year old girl seems to gravitate to these kinds of novels now, so I thought I might as well buy these as one or two might speak to her.

And since she’s on a Harry Potter roll (she’s now in Book Two Three), she got this one as well.

  1. What a marvelous haul! I enjoyed browsing vicariously through your new stash. I am trying to cut back on book purchasing but this week I did have to buy the Caldecott gold medalist and a couple of the Coretta Scott King Award winners. And several students in my Adolescent Lit course are desperate to read Forgive Me Leonard Peacock so I decided to purchase a class copy they can pass around and share. We really have very limited access to books where I live and teach so I try to share books when I can.

    • Hi Elisabeth! These books are only for 2 dollars each (two years back, the bargain price for brand new books was only 1 dollar!), so I figured I’m actually saving by buying quite a lot. Haha. Strange logic, huh. I haven’t read Locomotive yet, looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it. I’ve seen Forgive Me Leonard Peacock too, and looking forward to adding that to my reading list this year. You’re an awesome teacher for providing your class copies of books that you own and bought yourself. :)

  3. What a HUGE haul, Myra. I hope your new home has a HUGE library! You found some really sweet ones too. I love the PB Stars, & Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares is a great read. Many other good ones would be on my list if I could borrow! Fun to see!
