[BHE 210] Loot from Book Sales in Singapore, Book Gifts, and Book Depository


Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that have found their way into our hands. Over the past several weeks, there have been quite a number of book sales here in Singapore – which naturally made me a very happy girl.

Book Present!


I actually received this review copy a few weeks ago and immediately read it – . Will be posting a review this week!

Book Sale in Cathay


When my husband and I picked up our daughter a few weeks ago, we passed by Cathay and chanced upon a random book sale. Naturally, I could not resist buying these lovelies: The Dark Tower (The Dark Tower #4): Wizard and Glass by Stephen King, The Teardrop Story Woman by Catherine Lim, The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. These books are 3 for 10 sgd.

Book Sale in Big Box

This is quite the sweet deal: 3 brand new books for 10 dollars.


Women In Love by D. H. Lawrence, Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, Sons and Lovers by D. H. Lawrence.


Marina by Carols Ruiz Zafon, A Hundred Flowers by Gail Tsukiyama, The Whispering Muse by Sjón.


Wild Cards: Busted Flush by George R. R. Martin, Wild Cards: Suicide Kings by George R. R. Martin, Wild Cards: Jokers Wild by George R. R. Martin.


The Penny Dreadful Collection: The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Keeping the Night Watch by Hope Anita Smith with illustrations by E. B. Lewis, Free City by João Almino.

Pansing Books


I mentioned to Pansing Books that I still need to read a horror story for my Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, and they were kind enough to send me review copies of these Stephen King novels: Bazaar of Bad Dreams: Thrilling Stories and Mr Mercedes.


Finders Keepers by Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of The Craft by Stephen King


Golden by Melissa De La Cruz and Michael Johnston

Book Depository – My Mother’s Day Book Loot 

I think I must have mentioned in my Facebook page how Book Depository is both a boon and a bane, my sin and my salvation. I know I should cease and desist from purchasing books, but how can I when Book Depository makes it so darn easy with just a few clicks. These are books that my husband got for me.


When I realized that this was a trilogy, I ordered all three titles by Alice Walker: The Color Purple, The Temple of My Familiar, Possessing the Secret of Joy


I have been waiting for this book for a long time. It’s here. The Pharos Gate: Griffin and Sabine’s Lost Correspondence by Nick Bantock.

How about you, fellow bibliophiles? What books found you over the past several weeks?
