[BHE 48] From Peanuts to Kama Sutra

BHE

It’s Sunday once again. Time for us to share our Book Hunting Expedition post where we give space to books that have found us and called to us over the past weeks or so. Here is an assortment of books that I borrowed from the library and bought from my favorite book-hunting grounds, Bras Basah.

These two graphic novels are my eleven year old daughter’s picks: The Complete Peanuts from 1973-1974 by Schulz and Derek Kirk Kim’s Same Difference.

I am deeply fascinated by reviews of gorgeous picture books and so I thought I might as well read Dilys Evans’ Show & Tell: The Fine Art of Children’s Book Illustration.

Finds from Bras Basah

One of the reasons why I keep coming back to Bras Basah is the fact that I chance upon books such as this one: Roverandom by JRR Tolkien.

After much searching, I finally have my hands on The Kama Sutra of Vatsayana translated by Sir Richard F. Burton. Complete and Unabridged edition. Interesting! And for 2.50 at that.

How about you, dear friends, what are some of your book buys this week?
