It is Sunday once again. Time for us to share the books that have found us over the past weeks or so. This is actually a much-delayed posting since I found these lovelies during the Page One Warehouse Sale during the New Year early this year. But since we’re also celebrating Chinese New Year this week here in Singapore, I thought it was quite fitting.
First Batch of Books
We were there during the very first day of the Warehouse Sale bright and early. While I was a tad disappointed that the books were not as cheap as two years back (at 1 dollar each), there were still quite a number of bargain books at 2 dollars each. As you can see from the picture above, it was like Christmas Day for me all over again.
Quite a lot of Erin Hunter books. Omen of the Stars (Warriors): Sign of the Moon, Return to the Wild (Seekers): Island of Shadows, Omen of the Stars (Warriors): The Forgotten Warrior, Seekers: Spirits in the Stars.
Redwall: The Sable Queen, Redwall: Mossflower – both by Brian Jacques.
The Terrible Thing that Happened to Barnaby Brocket by John Boyne and illustrations by oliver jeffers, Ghost Knight by Cornelia Funke, and Wonder by RJ Palacio.
The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters, Volume Two by Gordon Dahlquist, The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler.
Ender in Exile by Orson Scott Card, Pyramids by Terry Pratchett. My collection of the Discworld Novels is overflowing now.
This is one of my greatest finds, I thought. Hardbound copy for two dollars. Highly Inappropriate Tales for Young People by Douglas Coupland and Graham Roumieu.
The Wonder Clock by Howard Pyle, and Dark Alchemy by Garth Nix, Eoin Colfer and Neil Gaiman.
The Thin Executioner by Darren Shan, Keeper of the Realms: Crow’s Revenge by Marcus Alexander, The Spooks Nightmare by Joseph Delaney, The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan.
Cheer! Bevan vs Evan and other School Rivalries by Zoe Evans, Secret of the Shadows by Cathy MacPhail, Overbite by Meg Cabot. My twelve year old girl seems to gravitate to these kinds of novels now, so I thought I might as well buy these as one or two might speak to her.
Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan, Northward to the Moon by Polly Horvath, and Brian’s Winter by Gary Paulsen.
12 year old Daughter’s Choice
Camp Babymouse by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm, Creepover: Ready for a Scare by P. J. Night, Goosebumps: Horror Land by R. L. Stine.
Star Wars: Omnibus The Complete Saga Episodes I through VI. Bought this for 5 dollars. Not bad, right?
Graphic Novels Galore! Return to Wonderland, Red Hood, Gotham Central, Treachery by Stephen King, Green Lantern, Infamous, New Krypton. My girl knows how to choose her comics.
And since she’s on a Harry Potter roll (she’s now in Book
Two Three), she got this one as well.
And of course, you can’t go wrong with Simpsons Comics: A Go-Go.
The Armageddon Rag by George R. R. Martin.
The Sweetest Dream by Doris Lessing, Vaclav & Lena by Haley Tanner.
The Wind through the Keyhole by Stephen King, Of Love and Evil: The Songs of the Seraphim by Anne Rice.
Poetry, Picturebook, and Notebooks
Mala of the Heart: 108 Sacred Poems edited by Ravi Nathwani and Kate Vogt and Foreword by Jack Kornfield.
Since we have an addiction for notebooks, we bought a few.
For my daughter.
Stars by Mary Lynn Ray and Marla Frazee.
Bras Basah Finds
Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony by Eoin Colfer.
The Callender Papers by Cynthia Voigt, The Floods: Lost by Colin Thompson and The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd.
