[BHE 259] Book Loot From SG Book Deals Book Sale (Part One of Two)

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that found their way into our hands and our ever-expanding bookshelves. This week, I am glad to share more of my book loot from the fairly recent SG Book Deals Book Sale at the Singapore Expo. Whenever I got the blues, the one thing that is guaranteed to perk me up is some serious book shopping. And at 3 books for 10 dollars, that makes me a very very happy girl.

Remarkable Book Find

I would have to say that, hands down, this is my best find yet. For ten dollars, I got the new illustrated edition of The Prophet And The Art Of Peace by Kahlil Gibran. Now I distinctly regret not getting more copies, because this one right here, it shines.

How about you, dear friends? What are the books that managed to weave their way into your shelves as of recent?
