[BHE 191] Christmas Book Loot and SG Book Deals at Big Box

BHE

Myra here.

I am excited to share my book loot from this Christmas – both from my two book clubs – and a fairly recent book sale by SG Book Deals at Big Box. I am so glad that there are so many book sales here in Singapore.

Christmas Loot from Book Clubs

True to form, our end-of-year gathering was all about a bookish version of the White Elephant Book Exchange.

The photo above is my book club – GatheringReaders at NIE.

And from Saturday Night Out For Book Geeks (SNOB-Geeks) – we didn’t have a group photo with our book loot unfortunately.

And so my book loot from GatheringReaders at NIE – which I totally stole from someone else:

I see my husband loves me truly – and my daughter too as she had to find and carry all these books from Kinokuniya. Thank you to my best enablers in the world: The World Of Ice and Fire: The Untold History of Westeros and The Game Of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.

Check out those inside pages. Beautiful. Now I understand why it’s taking George R. R. Martin an inordinately long time to publish the last two novels in the series.
