[BHE 155] Loot from Singapore Book Sale! (Part 1 of 2)

BHE

Myra here.

It is Sunday once again. Time for us to share the books that have hunted us down and squeezed their way into our jampacked bookshelves. And yes, my shelves are bursting at the seams because of the recent book sale here in Singapore which we announced here.

Do watch out for Part 2 of my Book Loot post next week!

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

  1. I can see why you managed to find spaces for these… although you list so many books here, I can’t believe there’s a part two!! Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron looks spooky. I would like to hear how you like it after you read it. I have gotten a really random collection of books recently, including The Dead Gentleman by Matthew Cody and Latin for Gardeners by Lorraine Harrison.
