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

foxpatchIt’s all a bit dramatic on Vulpes Libris this week, what with runaway brides, dangerous motherhood, epic history and Jackie’s best reads of the year. I could pretend that I chose this embroidered fox image in order to convey the spirit of all this drama, but really I just thought he was cool.

Monday: Jackie offers mini-reviews of the best books she’s read so far this year.

Wednesday: Sam looks at the intense novel Beside The Sea by French author Veronique Olmi.

Thursday: Kate reviews John Brewer’s monster epic of eighteenth-century history, The Pleasures of the Imagination.

Friday: Moira finds she has more than a little sympathy with the runaway bride in Liz Fenwick’s latest – A Cornish Affair.
