Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet

02.20.2013

By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

It’s been an abundant Valentine’s week where I received not only great gifts from my husband who wooed me with my favourite kind of goodies—a lamb plush toy and a set of China Glaze and Nicole O.P.I. nail polishes—I received a number of book greats this week!

lamb plush toy
Valentine’s Gift #1: a lamb plush toy from my husband. Because my daughter pronounces “lamn” as “lem,” she decided to call this little guy, “Lemon.”

Valentine's Day gift #2: Nicole O.P.I.: Hard Kourt Fashionista.

Valentine’s Day gift #3: China Glaze nail polish set: #648 – Unplugged, #934 – Swing Baby, #87 – Long Kiss

This meme “Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet” was inspired by the original meme that I participated in and which many of you may be familiar with: “Stacking the Shelves” hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.

My posts will take the format of books and bookish items (including SWAG) that I have:

  • received from publishers and/or authors for review
  • purchased
  • received as a gift or prize through winning a contest
