Book Hunting Expeditions Fantasy and Paranormal Reading Themes

[Bhe 132] Picturebook Love – the Library Edition


Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that have haunted us and called to us from library bookshelves, or stalked us until we gave in and brought them home, or the books that have been orphaned in our doorsteps for the past several weeks or so. This week, I am featuring a few books that I borrowed from our public libraries in SG before I left (now in San Diego), and which I am hoping to feature for our current reading theme.

Many thanks, dear Iphigene, for this lovely widget. Truly beautiful.

  1. Myra, all my new books are upstairs so I can’t list them here (too tired and busy to push myself!), but I found 12 PBs at my library, all at 25 cents each. Could NOT resist! And, of course, I purchased the amazing SAM & DAVE DIG A HOLE 😀 😀 😀 You’ve got some great ones here! LOVE “Unicorn” 🙂
