Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet

10.01.2012

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

While The Bibliotaphe Closet continues to go through a renovation, the books and prizes, too, continue to arrive, and thus the new name of my books announcement weekly meme, Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet.

I just checked my Goodreads account and the number of books I have listed total 1847 (plus the three I have just received in the mail today), for a total of 1850 titles. The Bibliotaphe Closet is officially stuffed!

Here’s what I received since Thursday of last week:
