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.
We hope you’ve enjoyed Vulpes Libris in 2010. There have been many ups and a few memorable downs, but even the downs tended to have a comical silver lining, and so for the foreseeable future at least, we fully intend to keep on keeping on.
Here’s hoping this Christmas season brings peace on Earth (it’s good to aim high), and goodwill to bookworms everywhere.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
(And if, during the holidays, you just happen to read one of the books we’ve discussed on this site, please don’t be shy about stopping by and sharing your views. We love it when our readers comment so Bring. It. On.)
* In actual fact, come January many of the Book Foxes will be feeling broke, battered and bloated but brilliant books will go some way towards cheering us up.
Wondering about the cool snowmen picture? These funky dudes on the meadows in Edinburgh were created by Anna Burkey and friends to launch the “Let’s Get Lyrical” campaign which sees Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature teamed up with Glasgow UNESCO City of Music for a month of events in February 2011. Let’s Get Lyrical would love you to get involved, so check out their website over Christmas and share your lyrical stories with the likes of Ian Rankin, Janice Galloway, Eddi Reader, Mike Scott of The Waterboys and many more.
