While we have done our own personal blogposts about books we have recently bought, borrowed, stolen, acquired through devious means – I must admit that Story Siren is quite the genius in collecting all of these links together every Sunday. And over 200 participating blogs at that! Do join in the fun! Since there are three of us running this site (Mary Iphigene from the Philippines, Fats from US and myself from Singapore), we shall see if we can continue participating on a weekly basis.
Since I have just recently donated 100 books for our 1:4:1000 Blogiversary Book Drive, my shelf is missing a few books to keep it in balance (alignment of the book chakra). Here are a few photos on some of my recent acquisitions.
Now if you were wondering after posting those page-flickin’ yummy books – why so many? 35 books! Aha. I got all these fantabulous books during the most recent garage sale in my staff housing within campus. Most of the expatriate lecturers/professors who are about to leave put their stuff up for a ridiculously low amount (not that I’m complaining, I love it!) – these books cost 0.50 cents each. Yup! Not even 1 sgd. I kept the books which are not for children, and the others I bought I donated as well for our 1:4:1000 Book Drive.
I also bought several from another ‘stall’ in the garage sale – these books cost a dollar each:
I also received two books during the Asian Festival of Children’s Content here in Singapore. The lovely authors (Rosemarie and Holly Thompson) gave a signed copy of their books to me and I shall truly treasure these.
