Every Sunday, we share the books that managed to find their way into our hands through covert or perfectly legitimate means. This week is extra special as I am sharing my book haul from a good friend’s (an international school librarian) collection, since she and her family are leaving Singapore. Since they are unable to ship their books overseas, it is important that her well-loved books go to homes that will read them and care for them, and I am glad to have been chosen as one of the recipients of the books that helped define her and her family.
