Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our shelves. This week, I am sharing my loot from a recent book sale here in Singapore (yes, lots of book sales here).
BookStreet Book Haul
Several weeks back, the National Book Development Council of Singapore organized a Book Carnival / Book Street from 8-10 September at the Singapore Management University Underground Concourse (connected to Bras Basah MRT station).
Since the organizers of this event are wonderful friends of mine, naturally I came and provided support not just once but twice. It was so worth it as could be seen in my book haul.
