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 – replete with chocolate, looking forward to seeing a daffodil (any daffodil at all) and (in my case) basking in the heady warmth of 8deg C – ready with a full week of reviews. With a whole string of theme weeks coming (watch this space!), we’ve made absolutely certain that this week there is no discernible collective train of thought.
Monday: Jackie looks at a few memorable books that she’s read recently.
Tuesday: Kate takes an axe to Harlequin Mills & Boon
Wednesday: We welcome back Guest Fox Simon Thomas, taking time off from his regular blog Stuck In A Book to post his latest piece for Vulpes Libris.
Thursday: Hilary has fun finding out what makes the French seem weird to people across the Atlantic, and wonders if it can help her to understand them from across the Channel, with Sixty Million Frenchmen Can’t Be Wrong by Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow.
Friday: An Anglo-Catholic and a secular humanist walk into a bar… I mean, Kirsty McCluskey and Michael Carley have a serious chat about Rowan Williams’ Faith in the Public Square.
There I was, wondering if I could find an Easter Fox – and I have! I am desolated to have missed an Easter Egg Hunt around London last year, with 200 gorgeous eggs to be found. This one, by Shauna Richardson, Crochetdermy Fox, is no. 71, and was hidden close to St James’s Park.
