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

While it’s not a theme week as such, a glance at the titles for this upcoming week looks as if the Foxes are thinking of places; books on where people live, or where they are traveling and the changes taking place, real or imagined.It’s a fitting subject for the beginning of summer, when vacationing goes into high gear.

Monday– Jackie journeys through Peter Carey’s latest novel, Parrot & Olivier in America.

Tuesday-Sam is impressed by The Tall Man: Death and Life on Palm Island.

Wednesday-Sam talks to Chloe Hooper about The Tall Man, and what it’s like to discover the heart of darkness in your own country.

Thursday-Nikki isn’t exactly in raptures over Liz Jensen’s The Rapture

FridayHome is Sharon’s favourite book of the year so far. . .

    I just have to comment on that painting, it’s so beautiful! The colours and the light are so striking. I rushed off and Googled before I read to the end so missed the link (!) but it’s a shame we can’t click on the picture on his site and see it in detail. Anyway, it’s a lovely inspiring way to start the day, thank you!
