Book Loot aka Monday Mailbox

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

expand for a close up

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?

  1. 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!
