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.
It’s the middle of summer and the Foxes are scampering around. A couple of us have attended the RNA Conference this weekend (we’ll have our first report at the end of the week) and others are spending time traveling, gardening or at the beach. However, we still took time to share our thoughts with you.
Monday-it’s time for Number Nine in our weekly countdown of our Top Ten All Time Greats.
Tuesday- Jackie gives an overview of the dazzling tome Smithsonian Natural History.
Thursday- There were two – count ’em – TWO Book Foxes at the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Annual Conference this year and on Friday, Moira shares the edited highlights of her talk – ‘Hanging with the Cool Peeps’.
Friday- Kate plunges into Sigrid Undset’s epic trilogy on medieval Norwegian life, Kristin Lavransdatter. Phew.
