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 this week on Vulpes

This week the Foxes tackle the environment, the magic of reading and meeting your fellow readers, confessions, lyricism and how to respond to the Beautiful People (whoever they may be). So it’s a week when anything might happen and most probably will. Thank goodness for books to keep us all sane! Well, nearly sane …

Monday: Jackie explains Rewilding The World, an environmental book by Caroline Fraser.

Tuesday: After reading a feature in the New York Times, Lisa’s eyes are opened to ‘dating websites for bibliophiles’ and she wonders if literary matches really can lead to love matches.

Wednesday: Nikki has some confessions of her own about Confessions of a Fallen Angel by Ronan O’Brien.

Thursday: Anne meets the beautiful people in E. Lynn Harris’ In My Father’s House, and lives to tell the tale.

Friday: Rosy chats to Anna Burkey of Edinburgh Unesco City of Literature about their newest project “Let’s Get Lyrical” and finds out what an Unesco City of Literature actually is.

Saturday: Finally, rumour has it that our kids/teen book expert Eve is set to return to her regular slot talking about the latest releases and books to watch.

    Looking forward to Tuesday’s post in particular. I discovered the other day that a vegetarian dating agency is following me on Twitter so I’m interested in hearing about this other niche dating market. Got a good week coming up!
