[BHE 369] Library Haul: From Picturebooks to Literary Novels

Library Books!


Myra here.

Over the past weeks, I have been sharing my loot from the recent Pansing Book Sale. I have, since then, tried to do a moderate moratorium from book-buying (umm… not really). Hence, this Sunday, I will be sharing my book haul from our public library here in Singapore.
