Book Hunting Expeditions

[BHE 165] Book Loot from Manila!

BHE

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share books that have hunted us down and found their way into our bookshelves.

My family and I had a very short trip to the Philippines just a few weeks ago, and most naturally I got myself quite a number of books!

The same soulsister gave me this painting that she made for me. Beautiful isn’t it? I am fortunate to be surrounded by friends and family who have an artist’s soul. Thanks Niña!
