It’s been a while since I’ve last published a post on the new books that have been added to my collection. But, since then I’ve been privileged to receive a number of great works of literary fiction—books I have been waiting to buy and read. And so, I’m also looking forward to this year’s summer TBR list where I have a few months to fully indulge in some much-awaited down-time dedicated solely to reading!
Here is how The Bibliotaphe Closet has grown:
