[BHE 179] Book Loot from Page One Book Sale!

BHE

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we are excited to share books that managed to find their way into our hands and landed straight into our ever-growing bookshelves. This week, I am especially excited as I now get to share my book loot from the Page One Book Sale which happened a few weeks ago here in Singapore.

Here I am doing what I do best: Book Hunting!

And here’s my book loot!

Middle Grade/ YA novels

Brand new books were sold at 5 for 10 dollars – or at 80% off – which is something like 2 dollars per book.
