My portfolio at 23 years old

It has been a little over 2 years ago that I started reading into stocks and bought a few stocks. As a university student now, I lack the financial capital as before and priorities are now different. As such, I don't find myself trying to read as much as before, but I'm glad the habit of reading the posts on thefinance.sg has stuck with me. 

So these are my current stocks:

Value-for-money: Kinokuniya or Booksdepository

Meet Kinokuniya and Books Depository. 

The former has physical brick-and-mortar and online stores while the latter is solely an online retailer. 
For all the book lovers out there, I am sure these are some of the places we go in order to satisfy our book cravings. Kinokuniya was where I picked up my first book on investing. I summarised some of my thoughts on that book here. Since then, I have bought at least 6 other books on investment and other genres that cost at least $200 in total from Kinokuniya. 
Book lovers should also know that Kinokuniya is not the cheapest for pricing. I came to know Books Depository recently, and boy is there a huge difference in price. 
Let's compare an investment book, say Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits and Other Writings. 

On Books Depository: $18.56, original price: $30.03 


On Kinokuniya: $37.40, member's price: $33.66 


If we are to compare prices only, then we have a clear winner here. Kinokuniya is still more expensive than Books Depository, eve…
