[BHE 153] Book Gifts, Library Finds, and Discounted Books from Park Lane Mall and Kinokuniya

BHE

Myra here.

Sunday is my favourite day of the week, as I get to share the books that have successfully hunted me down and found their way home into my bookshelves. This week, I am excited as I have a diverse set of titles to share with you all.

Authority by Jeff Vandermeer, When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, and The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan and Peter Sis (which I have reviewed here).

I realized that I didn’t have my own copy of these two novels which I am glad to find on sale here: The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran and Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman.

A few book buys from Kinokuniya Bookstore

I took advantage of the 20% discount offered by Kinokuniya to Members to purchase a few Terry Pratchett titles that are missing in my collection: Equal Rites and The Light Fantastic. I have 18 more titles that I have to hunt down before I start reading the series.

This is my 13 year old girl’s book choice while we were at Kino: Map My Heart by Dom & Ink.

A fellow book geek knows about my love affair with David Levithan, and so she gave me her review copy: Hold Me Closer – The Tiny Cooper Story A Musical Novel by David Levithan.

The Cultural Medallion Artist Milenko Prvacki gave me this precious book a few weeks back. After Memory: The Art of Milenko Prvacki – 40 Years by Charles Merewether.

What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe and Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. Because I heart dragons.

How about you, fellow bibliophiles, what are the books that found their way into your hands these past weeks?

  1. Great titles! I also want a copy of What If? and that cover of Anansi Boys is gorgeous. 🙂

    • Hi Fats! I borrowed What If from the library. It really looks like a good read. I can’t wait to read Seraphina as well. I really hope I find the time.
