A place for little short commentaries, musings and drawings.
izzit at town area near takashimaya & etc?
It is.Just a five minutes walk from Takashimaya. They are both on Orchard Road.Borders is at Wheelock Place while Sunny's bookstore is at Far East Plaza.(Wheelock Place is owned by a Hong Kong conglomerate, Wheelock Properties, also part of the Lane Crawford department stores group.)
I spend too much on books anyway and I have forced myself to stop buying books. Well, at least for a few weeks!
no place to borrow books in sg ma :/
There is. Did you know that there is a library on the fourth floor of Ngee Ann City? (which houses Takashimaya)It is just that I own several thousand books and I have read about half of them and the books I want are generally not in the local libraries. Books like 'The Seduction of Place: The City in the Twentieth Century', 'The Teutonic Knights', 'The Oxford History of the Byzantium', etc. Heheh.I order from aboard often. I bought 'War and Society in Renaissance Europe 1450-1620' and 'Weapons and Warfare in Renaissance Europe' last week from Amazon.
hmm i dun read books :/ my record .. finish 1-2 chapters of the book n dat's it..>.<
Heheh. Well, that is not uncommon in Singapore either. A colleague from China once made the observation that Singaporeans don't like to read. I agree with him. Even if Singaporeans were to read, I think they are very practical and pragmatic people, they usually go for self-help books, inspirational books, MBA/finance books and so forth.1-2 chapters!? That's it? No more? Wow!
unbelievable.. but it's true :/i seldom finish books.. or 97% of the books i read
