I am writing a Monday mailbox post today itself instead of Monday.
I had an awesome book month (February). I bought a few books at the Border clearance sale last weekend. They are not really very cheap if you convert them to Rupees but as far as Singapore Dollars are concerned, they are pretty cheap and I have to learn to not convert Dollars to Rupees every time I shop. The best part was I got a lot of books that were already on my Wishlist. Here are the books
Lost in the Jungle by Yossi Ghinsberg
Map of Ireland by Stephanie Grant
The confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Mary Street
Bone China by Roma Tearne
Skin by Mo Hayder
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Berry
Steve & Me by Terri Irwin
Life to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza
Into the Beaituful North by Luis Alberto Urrea
The Wish Maker by Ali Sethi
At the beginning of February I went to my favorite second hand bookshop and bought a few books
as well. They are each under $3.
The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman
Bound by Napoli
AK by Peter Dickinson
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’engle
Beijing Doll by Chun Sue
Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah
The Flame Tree by Yang-May Ooi
The Haunting Hour by R.L.Stine
I also got a handy pouch from the Borders sale. I don’t know what it’s meant to be used for but I will use it as a makeup pouch as most of my make up fits in pretty well and its fold-able too. It’s not very pretty looking but I love it anyway.
I got 2 books for review
Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran and
Amazir by Tom Gamble
How have you all been? What books came into your house?
I received Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran. It is my most coveted book for 2011!
Wow, you did have a great month!! How are you going to decide which book to read first? The Wish Maker and Madame Tussaud stand out to me.
what an awesome loot ! enjoy! Bone china is one book I’ve been wanting to pick up for sometime now.
Great list! And I’m soooooo glad you got a Mo Hayder book! I love her books!! 😀
Wow, Violet. A great list there. 😀 Would love to read Madame Tussaud. I still haven’t read Moran’s Cleopatra yet. 😛
Wow, February was a great month for you collecting books! Nice work and I can’t wait to see what you think of all of these!
What great finds! Enjoy!
I want to read Into the Beautiful North soon; I LOVED The Hummingbird’s Daughter! Lost in the Jungle by Yossi Ghinsberg, Bone China by Roma Tearne, and Life to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza all sound really neat just by their titles/author names. 😉 And The Lake of Dead Languages is one of my favourite Goodmans. Looks like you definitely had a great month!
What a loot, Violet! Enjoy them all. I tend to convert to my local currency too whenever I shop abroad. LOL!
