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.
We’ve got poetry, paleontology, marriage and horror on tap this week. There’s probably no connection between them, except that Book Foxes have been reading about them whilst savoring the last warm days before we get out the jackets & leaf rakes. It’s a bittersweet time of year.
Monday-Jackie digs into the connection between women and dinosaurs in The Fossil Hunter by Shelley Emling.
Tuesday-Poetry has always baffled Sam. Until he picks up a copy of Rain by Don Patterson
Thursday- Anne discovers everything she might need to know about love, sex, marriage and family, and possibly some things she might not, in Dan Savage’s The Commitment
Friday- Nikki enjoys the company of Iris & Ruby by Rosie Thomas
Saturday- Eve still hasn’t got over the end of The Book Festival and seems to have an obsession with horror. We shall be having words…
