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.
Now that winter is finally just around the corner where I live (or so we are told) we are seeing more mornings like this one and fewer grey, soggy days of continual rain. Hope this is not speaking too soon!
So, like this inquisitive fox, we are beginning to venture out of the den and hunt for great new books to come and tell you about in 2013. This week, Jackie brings news from afar, Kate from across the Channel, Moira from closer to home, while Lisa is taking a first foray into her new venture of telling us all about the best of books for children.
Monday: Jackie goes into the jungle with Mattias Klum’s Borneo Rain Forest.
Tuesday: Kate watches with interest how the French conducted their adulteries in Louise de Vilmorin’s Les Belles Amours.
Thursday: Moira is engaged, intrigued and slightly frustrated by Jack Straw’s eminently readable memoirs, Last Man Standing.
Friday: Lisa starts off a year of children’s book reviews with a controversial modern classic: Storytime with Peppa.
