[BHE 289] Double Up Your Reading Library Haul – Graphic Novels and Writing Home (Part 1 of 2)

Myra here.

Every Sunday, we share the books that found their way into our hands and shelves from our many travels or library visits or book hunting expeditions. This week, I am happy to share one book buy from Book Depository and my library haul.

Double Up Your Reading Library Haul

I am always over the moon when the National Library Board of Singapore launches its double-up-your-reading promo during the school holidays. Instead of a maximum of eight titles, we can now borrow up to 16 books, which is absolutely awesome. Since we have three library cards in our family, I naturally went crazy, as to be expected.

Here are my book finds, a few of them are in keeping with our current reading theme. Click on the titles for our Affiliate Link to Book Depository.
