[BHE 202] Birthday Book Loot (Part One of Two)


Myra here.

I just celebrated my 40th birthday a few days back, and as per usual it is a very bookish birthday, thanks to my greatest enabler of all times, my husband and my lovely daughter. He asked me to make a list of the books that I always wanted but couldn’t find anywhere – and good man that he is, he got practically everything for me – thanks to Book Depository. 🙂

A Very Europa Edition Kind Of Book Love


Troubling Love by Elena Ferrante, The Days Of Abandonment by Elena Ferrante

Ray Bradbury Is Timeless
