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

Even though Autumn won’t officially begin for another week, the nights are cooler and some of the tree branches are getting a little yellow at the tips.There are goldenrod flowers along the roads in less domesticated patches. And in Ohio at least, there’s been a lot more rainy days, which are perfect for curling up with a cup of tea or warm cider and a book. Here are some that the Book Foxes have been reading lately:



Monday- Jackie presents a splendid art book, Unknown Terrain:The Landscapes of Andrew Wyeth.

Tuesday- Kate reviews the very compelling The Teleportation Accident by Ned Beauman, and the spectacularly imaginative Lizard World by Terry Richard Bazes. Body parts and reptiles in abundance.

Thursday- Anne finds the scenery a tad disappointing in Judith Allnatt’s A Mile of River.

Friday- Hilary finds food for thought, as well as much to enjoy, in Hazel Osmond’s latest novel The First Time I Saw Your Face.

    Oh Jackie – I’m quite keen on some of Andrew Wyeth. Have you seen the Helga pictures? I think they are brilliant. Looking forward to that post.

    The title”Teleportation Accident” has a kind of throwaway feeling about it that suggests a minor blip, but I am sure it isn’t.

    Lovely soft pictures in that photograph, Jackie, makes it very mellow.

    Oops, I meant “The Teleportation Accident”, apologies to the author…

    Yes, Rosy, I’ve seen the Helga pictures, but I’m not one for portraits, so prefer his landscapes.
    And thanks, Melrose, for the compliment on my photo.

    Yes indeed, it is THE Teleportation Accident, but I kept calling it the Incident for a few days …

    Brain evidently not working. I meant lovely, soft colours (not pictures), Jackie, but you understood what I meant (thank you!).

    It must be the type of title, Kate, which has that kind of effect. I am really looking forward to the review.
