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 on Vulpes Libris

fox bronze in rainGorblimey, it’s a cold spring up here in windy north-west Europe. Hope its warmer where you are.  At least the gardens are doing well with all the rain; but we’d like some MORE SUN please, weather gods. Here is the Vulpes Libris reading forecast for this week:

On Tuesday, Kirsty interviews fabulously popular author Veronica Henry.

On Wednesday, Sam looks at Jon McGregor’s story collection This Isn’t The Sort of Thing that Happens to Someone Like You.

On Thursday, Lisa considers the importance of proper spots in Lucy Ladybird, by Sharon King-Chai.

On Friday, Kate reviews Richard Carr on the Tory MPs who fought in the First World War, and went on to dominate British politics.

The photo of the bronze fox in the rain was taken in Tokyo by Mr Hayata and is available on his flickr stream, under a creative commons licence.
