As we celebrated our 100th Book Hunting Expedition Sundays, we are inviting you, our fellow book hunters to share with us photographs of your favorite bookstores (be it indie, discounted book stores, book cafes, big retail bookshops) and a few of your amazing book finds. While we try as much as we can to find out-of-the-way bookstores in the many cities that we get to visit, we know that we won’t be able to discover so many faraway places in our lifetime. And so we welcome guest posts from anyone who would wish to share their latest bookplace discoveries. Even library finds and pictures of your libraries would be most welcome. Please send your BHE post to gatheringbooks (at) yahoo (dot) com.
Here are the books that found me the past few weeks or so.
Last week, I shared the first part of my book loot which I borrowed from my institution’s library. Here is the second part of my book finds:
