[BHE 353] A Very Belated Jolabokaflod Christmas

Belated Christmas Book Loot! Happy Jolabokaflod!


Myra here.

Over the past weeks, I have been sharing my book loot from the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale in Malaysia. This means that I was not able to share my Jolabokaflod Christmas book loot, which we take seriously, by the way. Better late than never, as good folks say.
