[Photo Journal] Word on the Water in London


Myra here.

We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday about our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Word on the Water in London

This was perhaps one of the more unique, (literally) off-kilter kind of book shop that I have been to. Finding this place was totally unexpected and unplanned. I had time on my hands before I was scheduled to watch E. Nesbit’s The Railway Children at Kings Cross Theater…


and my feet have brought me here.


The London Bookbarge!


They have a pretty interesting collection.

And here is what’s found inside!

Definitely a place one should visit!

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
