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