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.
We’re back! You may have noticed that we were on our summer break at the same time as the Olympics were being held. Does that mean the Book Foxes were participating? Well, unless they had competitions on who could fill their cart fastest at a book store, none of us would have qualified. Though a couple of Foxes were lucky enough to attend events at the Olympics, it was as spectators, not competitors. The rest of us spent time at the beach, in the garden, painting, shopping and assembling furniture. And working on posts for the near future on VL. We are a multi-talented bunch. As you can see from our line-up this week….
Monday- Jackie ponders the reactions on losing a favorite author.
Wednesday- Kate gets sociological about dragons, with Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina.
Thursday- Anne discovers that’s she actually with the half that died in Sophie Hannah’s The Other Half Lives …
Friday- We arrive at Number 7 on our ‘All Time Greats’ list. A bit of a ‘sleeper’, its popularity when first published took us by surprise and it’s never been out of our Top Ten since.
