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.
Lots to surprise and delight this week – in fact as many surprises as certainties right now (the Foxes have been taking their Spontaneity pills). So, hang on to your hats, and join us for the ride.
On Monday Lisa finally reads The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson in Sound Book form and considers whether the inbuilt sound effects are worth the extra money. . .
On Wednesday RosyB talks about larger-than-life characters and wonders whether characters these days are a bit…small.
On Friday Hilary learns about the reality of Reformation from Eamon Duffy’s The Voices of Morebath.
On Saturday Eve is planning to review another dystopian Teen novel, however she is on holiday and reading like a Demon. She reserves the right to change her mind an inordinate number of times.
