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.
In the Den, our birthday celebrations have wound down, we’re putting cake plates away and sweeping up confetti, trying to be especially quiet around those drowsing foxes with party hats askew. Along the way, between sips of champagne, we’ve managed to line up a nice batch of subjects for our readers this week.
Monday Jackie looks at the last week of Queen Victoria’s life in Farewell In Splendor by Jerrold M. Packard.
Tuesday Kirsty presents her Castro Crash Course.
Wednesday Nikki takes notes on The Fiction Class by Susan Breen.
Thursday Anne is vaguely charmed by Mr Rosenblum’s List by Natasha Solomons (Happy Reads series).
Friday Guest Fox Audrey braces for the startling novel The Slap.
