Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet

The book hoarder in me is still alive and well though I’ve done my best to be a little more self-controlled. And even though I haven’t purchased a slew of books this week, they have (much to my husband’s dismay) come in consistently.

My worry now, seems to be how to house all these literary treasures! I may just have to swallow my pride, bite the bullet and buy an e-reader? I don’t know. I still prefer a tactile read than I do reading online. I’m going to have to see how long I can hold out before getting a Kindle…

Here’s The Bibliotaphe Closet’s latest additions:

  1. I can’t wait to read The Word Exchange! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it! I have The Casual Vacancy but it’s taking me an embarrassingly long amount of time to read it… Not sure what it is about Rowling’s adult fiction but I haven’t been able to get into them. I’m halfway through The Cuckoo’s Calling too…

  2. 419 has an exotic/hot topic aspect to it, that’s what made it attractive to me. Good pace to the story too. I just don’t quite get how that got to be a Giller Prize winner though.For intricacy of plot, The Casual Vacancy was quite satisfying. I highly recommend it.

    1. The fact that 419 was named a Giller winner is what first attracted me to the book. And while I’m a little hesitant to read J.K. Rowling’s book because I wasn’t sure how she would do with adult fiction, your recommendation certainly helps. Thanks for stopping by!
