Passion Sharing 2

After some contemplation, here's 15 titles i'll be offering for bookswap/bookloan. i'll be adding more titles soon. but, wait, i have to set a separate blog for this thing, as not to disrupts my regular blog. and also i am really bad at writing book review. so, most probably, the books offered will only contain basic descriptions and maybe a link to a better review online. ya, that's a cheat, i know.

OK. i'm reserving MISTER PIP for you. i wrote a review of it sometime ago, not a proper one of course. i'll link it anyway.

Ms lydia, which one is highly recommended?:P

I'm here again. I want to see how this thing works. I've been lending to my 'physical' friends for a long time. But I find this lending/swapping with virtual friends facinating. So I'm here to learn before I 'open' my library.

I agree that a blog just for the book club will be good.

Yes, pls reserve Ms Walls' "Horses" for me. I'll publish my list soon so you can pick a book. Will email you my mailing address.

wakaka, new project ka? nice one. loan me that angela's ashes' 2nd book lepas ko habis baca, i look for it at popular centre point last night, tiada.

kukuanga said...

bergantung sama jenis buku apa ko suka baca la.


pong, ko pun mau minta kasi pos kaini? sudah habis baca. not as intense as Angela's Ashes la. macam bikin maradang pun ada.. how to say it ar? sloppy? read for yourself.

linda said...
