Stuffing the Bibliotaphe Closet


By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis

After a long weekend without the privilege of receiving any mail from the post, I was happily surprised to receive a large package in the mail yesterday from one of my favourite book publishers—Random House of Canada!

While I’ve refrained from purchasing any books for this week, I was also lucky enough to receive one of my previous winnings from Twitter in the mail.

Here’s how The Bibliotaphe Closet has grown this week:
