[BHE 214] Book Fete Part Two Of Two: The Adult Edition

BHE

Myra here.

It’s been a week since we arrived here in Europe. And so far, this is our third city! We landed in Berlin, took the bus to Munich (where I am grateful to receive my international fellowship at the International Youth Library), and now in Salzburg!

I will most likely be posting my book hunting expeditions here in Europe in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, here is Part Two of my book loot from the Tanglin Trust International book fete last month.

We are having a book drive next year. It will be 25 years since our high school graduation and we are collecting books as part of our community service with Colegio De Sta. Rosa Manila, our beloved alma mater. And I got these books (all of these I already own) for our book drive. 🙂

How about you, fellow book hunters? What are the books that found their way into your hands this week?

  1. I would go absolutely mad if I could buy so many great books for $1 each. Wow.
    It would probably be one of the highlights of my year.

    I bought 5 books this week, all new, so that turned out to be $45 after coupons. I thought I had gotten a great deal, but obviously not as good as yours .
