[BHE 71] Random Book Buys from Bras Basah

BHE

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our shelves for the past several weeks, seducing us with their book covers or hunting us down with their wilful, not-to-be-thwarted pages. I am amazed that this is our 71st Sunday post – how quickly time flies.

Random Book Buys from Bras Basah

Those of you who have been following our blog for awhile now would know about this fantabulous place here in Singapore where books can be bought for quite a cheap amount – 2 books for the amount of 5 sgd (roughly 4 USD), that is, if you’re up for some book hunting. Here are some of my more recent book purchase.

I gave a small jump of joy when I saw this beautifully illustrated version of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet as presented by Michael Rosen and Jane Ray. I am also familiar with Jules Feiffer’s artwork in The Phantom Tollbooth so I immediately grabbed a copy of his The Man in the Ceiling.

I have a growing collection of Diana Wynne Jones’ books and I am glad to find this first volume of The Chronicles of Chrestomanci. I hope I can hunt down the last two volumes too in this trilogy. I was flabbergasted to discover that I don’t have any Nick Hornby title in my bookshelf. This has to be addressed with High Fidelity to start with.

I have not read this novel yet by Paulo Coelho: Veronika Decides to Die. At 2.50, I know it was a steal.

Perfect for our current bimonthly theme: Edgar Allan Poe’s Selected Stories.

How about you, dear friends, what books found their way into your hands this week?
