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

2032844649_ad41d66b48Calling everyone who has been enjoying the summer’s final fling: time to come back inside, folks. That’s right, we’re now heading swiftly towards the winter. Nights are drawing in, there’s a definite nip in the air. But fear not, sunshine-loving friends, VL has plenty to keep you warm this week.

Monday: With all of the recent protests, Jackie found it fitting to revisit Warren I. Cohen’s collection of people who changed the world, Profiles in Humanity.

Wednesday: Moira delves into the world of elevation slings, Nellie the Elephant and hypoglycaemia as she peruses the First Aid Manual written jointly by St John Ambulance, St Andrew’s Ambulance Association and the British Red Cross. Yes, really.

Thursday: Anne faces the question of who you can trust and who you can’t in Harlen Coben’s Caught.

Friday: Hilary reflects on Steve Jobs, his death, and what he, and it, have taught her about life online.
