Myra here.

Every Sunday, we make it a point to share our (fairly) recent book acquisitions and our book hunting expeditions. We feature books that managed to find their way into our hands and our shelves. This week, I am excited to share our annual Christmas Book Flood loot. We usually prepare this ahead of time – like months ahead of time, because we order via Book Depository, hence we need to make sure there is ample time for the books to reach us before Christmas.
