Two More Weeks Only?

A friend just reminded me that if all goes well, I have only about 2 more weeks in Singapore. Which kind of makes this packing process seem more urgent. I need to find a bigger backpack now.

To all my friends who are feeling heartache on my behalf:

I don't have a car and I can't afford to bring all the books down to be sold/donated. I still have a lot of packing to be done before I go, and I need to report for work on 1st September. There's a lot to be done for the Dubai project before I go, so I will have limited time to pack. In light of this, I would really appreciate it if everyone could stop telling me not to throw away the books. It hurts me a lot to sacrifice these books - but I need to do this. As soon as possible, because if you look through the list, you can see that it's close to 100 titles that I need to get rid of. And I'm still not done yet.

If you would like to help, please look through the list on a regular basis and tell me which books you would like. I would appreciate it a lot more if you could make it convenient for me to pass you the books before the end of the week.

Thank you.

Good luck with everything, Dark Orpheus. If you need help spreading the word, I can think of two bloggers in Singapore who are likely to be interested in the books themselves and know others who are.

Nymeth - Thanks for the offer. Right now I'm giving my friends a chance to respond to the call. It's coordinating the pick up that's troublesome - because I have so little time. *sigh*

But really appreciate the offer.
