Book Hunting Expeditions Reading Life

[BHE 380] Library Books, Book Depository Buys, and Review Copies

Library Loot, Book Dep, and Review Copies!


Myra here.

If things go as they should, we would have been in the United Arab Emirates by now, ready to begin our new life adventure. Some of the books I am sharing here are borrowed from the Singapore libraries, a few weeks ago. One of my first tasks now that we have moved is to find the local libraries here in Al Ain. At any rate, here are some of the books that managed to find us over the past weeks or so.

Book Haul from Book Depository: Required Literature Texts

Since my daughter would be attending an international school here in Al Ain (Manor Hall International School), here are the books that are included in her Summer Reading List. Naturally, we had to purchase them.

Death Of A Salesman by Arthur Miller, Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, The African Trilogy: Things Fall Apart | No Longer At Ease | Arrow Of God by Chinua Achebe.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote.

American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang. You gotta love a school that recommends outstanding graphic novels.

How To Read Literature Like A Professor by Thomas C. Foster, Everything’s An Argument by Andrea A. Lunsford and John J. Ruszkiewicz.

Review Copies from Pansing

Daisy Jones And The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Girl In The Tower by Katherine Arden, The Bear And The Nightingale by Katherine Arden.
