Donating My Books

Every month or so, I donate some books from my personal library here in Singapore. Over the last 2.5 years of staying in Singapore, I have managed to accumulate quite a lot in my small apartment. It's amazing how one book can so quickly multiply into hundreds. I have completely succeeded in ignoring my mom's warning and reminders on not to build a "new collection"—sorry mom...

I only started this donation practice in Singapore. I am usually quite a hoarder and I love collecting books and build my personal library. However, recently I got a bit Zen and thought I wanted to make space and contribute to the society. The National Library Board Singapore provided me with a great solution to my cause with their book exchange corners. I've been donating my books ever since.
