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 This Week

It’s mid-May, my favorite time of year, when the plants reawaken with colorful explosions and new little animals are born. The Foxes are spending a lot of time with trees and gardens, and watching birds and sunsets, but we have managed to read some books and we present our latest this week. Think of it as a pause before we rush headlong into eBook Week, beginning May 20th.

Monday- Jackie presents The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey, which is simply wonderful.

Sharon discovers an author writing in the Western genre.

Kate MacDonald returns with her first hatchet job for Vulpes Libris: a bracing critique of the works of Ann Bridge.
