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

The cold days are a little longer and the calendar says that Spring is less than a month away.But we try not to let impatience steal the beauty of the remaining blustery days. To keep warm, the Foxes focus on even more variety than usual, as we have a myriad of topics this week.

Monday-Kate looks at a history of Afghanistan.

Wednesday- “Stuck in a Book” blogger Simon Thomas tells us about his all-time favourite books in the first of a series of posts for Vulpes Libris.

Thursday-With A Little Folly, Leena is reminded how much she enjoys Jude Morgan’s take on Regency England.

Friday-Resident It girl Ticky Dogge-Hare talks about love, sex and unreconstructed bastards with fab novelist Fiona Walker.

Mixed media painting “Foxtrot”(2012) is by Book Fox Jackie.You can see more of her wildlife artwork at her EBSQ page.
