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.
The Book Foxes have been excessively busy over the last few months, both in bringing you the cutting-edge book reviews you love (and sometimes hate), and in the exciting personal and business lives we all secretly, or not so secretly, lead. So we thought it was high time to give ourselves, and possibly you, a well-earned break and to allow you to catch up with the huge reading list you’ve no doubt developed from our postings.
We also rather fancied a couple of weeks messing about on the beach depicted, and really can you blame us? In our hearts, we’re already there.
But, to keep you ticking over, here’s a snapshot of the delights ahead for you when we’re back on your screens (as it were) on Sunday 14 August with our Coming Up post (please don’t eat all the ice cream, or indeed the daisies, while we’re gone …):
Lisa on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (her comments so far: what a book!)
Kirsty does Rowan Williams (the Archbish, not to be confused with Rowan Atkinson, even though they’ve both had experience of taking church weddings, of a sort) who does, in the nicest possible way, Teresa of Avila
David Boyd on TS Eliot
Anne looks at gatecrashers, marriage both gay and straight, and princes but possibly not all at the same time, although, hmmm, actually now I come to think about it … no! Stop right there! I really can’t take another injunction …
Enjoy your hols, and keep reading!
