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.

It’s summer!!…

The Book Foxes have been having a high old time over the last few months, reading and reviewing a whole plethora of books for your delectation. Now it’s time for our summer break, and with the recent advent of … wait for it! … sunshine (good grief indeed), we’re all desperate to get our floppy hats and bikinis out and live it up wherever we happen to be.

While we’re away developing our tans and pelts, as well as catching up on our reading lists, here’s a snapshot of the delights ahead for you when we’re back on Sunday 12 August with our Coming Up post:

An all-exclusive Erotic Fiction Week, when we get to the bottom (as it were) of what’s really going on behind literary closed doors. I tell you: Fifty Shades of Grey is only the beginning…

Parody Week, where the Foxes let loose their inner ironists and go for the comedy jugular.

And even Fantasy Week where the sky really is the limit!

So there’s a lot to look forward to when we’re back. In the meantime, enjoy your hols and see you all soon!

The lovely picture of the fox, no doubt contemplating his summer holidays, is by Dave Dyet and is called Fox 5. You can find it at Stock.Xchng, the leading free photography site, and Dave himself can be found at his own website.

    A bikini, really, Anne? I’ve never gotten any closer to a bikini than walking past them in the store and then I’m usually disbelieving that anyone can fit into them.
    That fox photo has a nice mood, it looks more like a painting really, with the light on the rocks.

    🙂 Well, I’ve heard of bikinis, Jackie – that’s the closest I’ve got too! Glad you liked the pic 🙂

    Aren’t bikinis named after a Pacific island?

    Yes, I think so!

    Bikini’s the atoll in the South Pacific where the first experimental atom bombs were detonated. The itsy-bitsy, tweeny-weeny garment was named after the atoll on the grounds that it was just as cataclysmic. Yrs truly, Trivia-R-Us Inc.

    Wonderful – we’re full of information on VL 🙂 Thanks, Moira!

    It says a lot about the mindset that a bathing suit was considered as having as much impact as the atom bombs. That’s just weird on so many levels.
