Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Coming up on Vulpes Libris

We have a return to the Thursday Soapbox this week with a tongue-in-cheek article from novelist, Aliya Whiteley. We also have reviews of several novels and Anne’s timely review of a spiritual book on Good Friday.

Monday: Jackie wonders at How to Fit a Car Seat On a Camel, edited by Sarah Franklin.

Tuesday: Kirsty is charmed by Jill Mansell’s Take a Chance on Me.

Wednesday: In the third of her reviews of the RNA’s Romantic Novel of the Year shortlist books, Moira considers Miranda Dickinson’s debut novel “A Fairytale of New York” and thinks it bodes well for the future.

Thursday: Novelist Aliya Whiteley makes her VL Soapbox debut with a brilliant article on what our bookcases reveal about us.

Friday: Anne thoroughly enjoys engaging with monastic spirituality in Nicholas Buxton’s Tantalus and the Pelican.

Saturday: Sam tips Even the Dogs by Jon McGregor to win a major prize this year.

With thanks to Mike Baird of Flickr for his lovely image, “Red Fox Cubs, Morro Bay”.

    What cute fox cubs!
    I’m hoping Sam’s book is really about dogs, though I shouldn’t be so literal. And really looking forward to the piece about bookshelves, that ought to be interesting.
