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

5395637850_74a434fce1I feel a little like there’ll be no one reading this post as the weather is so divine. You really ought to be out soaking up the rays and dancing in fields while you can. But for those of you with portable technology or an aversion to sunlight, just look what we’ve got coming up for you…

Monday Moira files her report on the 2011 Pure Passion Awards, held at the achingly elegant Royal Horseguards Hotel in Whitehall.

On Wednesday Anne considers that the end is indeed a long time coming in Robert Goddard’s Long Time Coming.

On Friday, Jay Benedict – one of the three judges of the Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2011 – reviews (in his own inimitable way …) the winning book – Jojo Moyes’ The Last Letter from Your Lover.

[Vulpes Libris is very much behind the campaign to save our libraries. So here’s another great image from Phil Bradley. This one and all the others can be found here]

    It’s been really interesting seeing all these posters from the Libraries campaign. They’ve kept the old-fashioned style & cleverly updated the message.
