In My Mailbox / New Crayons: The 2011 Asian Festival of Children's Content Edition

Sunday, June 5, 2011


Every Sunday, for the In My Mailbox meme, YA book bloggers share the books they bought, borrowed, or received over the past week. New Crayons is a similar meme that incorporates children's books and books for adults, and focuses on multicultural literature. For In My Mailbox / New Crayons this Sunday, I would like to share the books I bought at the Media Mart, the "bookstore" of the Asian Festival of Children's Content in Singapore. I always look forward to the Media Mart! Where else can I buy children's and YA books from Asia and around the world - without paying exorbitant shipping fees?

Here are a few pictures of the Media Mart:
