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.
Well, darlings, we’re in the second week of June and summer seems to have come and gone already. The other day, my friend Vivi had her annual garden party (Vivi is nothing if not determined), and we all ended up fleeing inside to drink Pimm’s with the central heating on. I’ve taken to carrying an emergency jumper at all times; in this weather, you can’t necessarily rely on some nice man lending you his dinner jacket.
However, you *can* rely on the lovely Bookfoxes to provide you with quality book reviews. (Ha! See what I did there?) So pour yourself a drink, possibly a hot one, and enjoy this week’s lineup! Love, Ticky xxxxxxxx
