Plug

"Plug" is a word that we often associate with a piece of rubber or plastic used to block a hole or leak. "Plug" also refers to the metal pins at the end of a wire connecting an electrical apparatus to a socket.

In this instance, allow me to use the word "plug" in a more informal manner. In American English in particular, "to plug" would mean to promote. While my intention is not to blow my own horn, may I nonetheless "plug" the recently published books which I edited (one of which with my ex-colleague, Azrina Sobian).

As promised in one previous posting, I'd put up the covers of my new books as soon as I get them. I got the scans this afternoon, courtesy of Rohaizad, and here they are:


The colour of the cover of Genealogy and Preservation of the Progeny: An Islamic Perspective is supposed to be blue, but I don't know why it turns out orange here. Oh, well...

These books are available at MPH outlets nationwide.

Come to think of it, MPH should give me a few more complimentary copies for plugging these books in the blogging community on their behalf. Hmmm...
