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

5397654433_6a0fe6d972 There’s a bit of a theme this week as St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching. Sorry to say we can’t offer shamrock hats and pints of Guinness, but we do have history, nostalgia and even some non-St. Patrick’s day posts for your reading pleasure.

Monday: Guest contributor Chris Harding tells us about her family’s ever-so-slightly eccentric reading habits.

Tuesday: Jackie explores exile & emigration in The Irish Empire by Patrick Bishop.

Wednesday: Nikki finds that books can affect your diet, when she reads The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson.

Thursday: In honour of St Patrick’s Day, Anne revisits the fluffiness of her youth in Maeve Binchy’s The Return Journey.

This brilliant poster is by Phil Bradley and can be found here.
