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 are taking the week off so that they can concentrate on the important business of consuming vast amounts of chocolate, hot cross buns and simnel cake.
We will be back – renewed, reinvigorated and slightly more rotund than before – on Sunday the 15th.
We won’t be idle though: in the coming weeks, as well as our usual mix of reviews, features and guest pieces, we’ve got a couple of our popular ‘theme’ weeks lined up. One is our annual ‘Poetry’ week and the other a week (or possibly more, the way it’s shaping up) dedicated to eBooks. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re here to stay, and we going to take a good long look at them. We’ve even started preliminary work on a super-mega-you-ain’t-seen-nuttin-like it ‘Swords and Sorcery’ theme week for the late Autumn (just in case you think we throw this stuff together on a whim …).
For the moment, though … a fox has gotta do what a fox has gotta do … even if it involves biting the ears off a chocolate bunny. See you all on the 15th …
