Dusty Bookshelves and Library Loot Reading Themes

Launch of Bimonthly Theme: Dusty Bookshelves and Library Loot

We thought that it’s about time for us to get crackin’ on books that we have bought over the past years and are casually languishing in our trusty bookshelves. Thus, our theme this month until mid-September is Dusty Bookshelves and Library Loot. 

Many thanks once again to Iphigene for this lovely widget.

Essentially, we would be reading and featuring the following:

  • Books that have been lying unread in our bookshelves for the looongest time
  • Books we have borrowed from the library
  • Books about the library
  • Books that speak to us for some reason or another during the next two months

If you have any recommended titles that you feel we should include for our theme, we’d be more than happy to hear your suggestions. Happy reading, everyone!

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
