Catch Of The Day – Book Haul While I Was Away

I couldn’t resist whenever there’s an MPH Warehouse Sale. As I remembered there were less crowd in the sweltering hot afternoon and the place was only powered by electrical fans.

Despite the heat that made browsing uncomfortable, I kept digging looking for treasures from the book pile.

Chinese books were scattered all over but I had fun searching for them because at a 90% discount, these books were the cheapest I’ve came across any sales!

Super delighted to have found especially Japanese to Chinese translated literature!

The amount of books that we bought.

      • You mean like book reviews? Yes, I have started, but in hardcopy form. I’m not sure about maintaining a blog on book reviews.

        I feel like this is my time of change, like a transformation. I should write or draw with a long term goal. For instance, if I doodle, I should stick to a theme, like a comic strip. I have to ensure I can continue for a long time, without running out of steam. One method is to build up my supply of material before I start publishing regularly.

        Can you write a post about how you learned to write fiction? I have read a few types of courses on how to write. But still, you can lead a horse to water, but can’t make it drink. Learning to write does not easily make one a writer. 🙂

      • Oh that’s true on the last statement~ my journey to write is a short one, and it stopped after Nanowrimo last year~ My blog posts has began to dwindle too… oh… if you notice 😦 I didn’t follow up on writing blogs, news, articles and stuff more frequent than I did last time. How’s your new venture coming along? Would love to hear from you about it 😀

      • I know this feeling too when I tried to write some music… Perhaps you could have a sketchbook for your drafts? Sometimes you may reach the idea of your perfect picture after many sketches 🙂
