Books from BookFest@Malaysia 2008
I went to the BookFest in KLCC last Saturday and bought a few books. From top to bottom, left to right, these books are
2 Chinese books about classical manuscripts in the history of China
* The Records of Three Kingdoms (三国志)
* The Art of War and the Thirty-Six Stratagems (孙子兵法 三十六计)
2 translated Chinese books on the stories of two most controversial resources . I would really like to find out the history and the development of these two main sources of world pollution.
* The Age of Oil: The Mythology, History, and Future of the World's Most Controversial Resource
* Coal: A Human History
2 Chinese books about military
* "观战笔记,一个中国将军眼中的未来战争", a book about the Iraqi War
* Unsolved Mysteries of World Military Affairs
3 English book on political and social affair in Malaysia
* Religion Under Siege: Lina Joy, the Islamic State and Freedom of Faith
* Lost in Transition-Malaysia under Abdullah
* Failed Nation? Concerns of a Malaysian Nationalist
I would like to input these titles into My Shelfari Bookshelf but all of them are not in the searchable database. Only the two original English title for "The Age of Oil: The Mythology, History, and Future of the World's Most Controversial Resource" and "Coal: A Human History" can be found.
These books cost me about RM150 and it will surely contribute to my tax deduction.
