[BHE 524] Book Hunting in Napoli

Myra here.

Over the past week or so, I’ve had the privilege of traveling to Italy for a transnational research meeting. Naturally, I had to do some book shopping while I was in Naples. I made sure to purchase titles set in Naples or in Europe.

I also bought quite a few titles online and while I was in Kinokuniya Dubai. Enjoy my book haul!
