2 New Books Published

Have been wondering and asking everytime I’m at a bookstore when this book will be out, finally now it’s launched for pre-order in our local bookstores Popular & Prologue. But then first launch always comes in hard copy, and selling here at SGD$49.92 and with a 30% members’ special. This is the first novel by the author not about the boy wizard. Will there be paperbacks coming up?

Another one by an author whose books I’ve always enjoyed reading, and inspired, such as Tuesdays with Morrie, For One More Day, and The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Have A Little Faith is his only book I have which is hardback. Bought it when it first came up on Borders’ shelf. I’m looking forward to reading this new fantasy on time and tide waits for no man, but will also have to wait for paperback version.


Have a Little Faith

Found out from our local ‘Popular’ bookstore that Mitch Albom has written a new book ‘Have A Little Faith’.  I was queuing at the cashier’s counter waiting to pay for my purchase, and saw the ‘order-placing’ sign with a small transparent holder containing some forms inside.

I like this author’s books which are not just easy read, but there are also things to learn from his sincere writing.  I love especially ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ and ‘For One More Day’ which are both very touching and heartwarming.  I have got a copy of most of his books, including the ‘5 People You Meet in Heaven’.  I’m looking forward to reading this new book about Faith, but will have to wait till there are smaller copies instead of the current hardcover.
