Every Sunday, we share the books that found their way into our hands. This week, I am excited to share my book loot from the much-anticipated book sale here in Singapore. 50 SGD for one box of books. I got so many great reads, the challenge now is when to find the time to read them all!
SG Book Deals Book Sale 2017
