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.

Christmas on Vulpes Libris …

313086831_fa0c6d037c_zDecember is upon us, we’ve FINALLY been allowed to open the first window of our Advent calendar, and Christmas is fast approaching. (Oh yes it IS … and there’s no point sticking your fingers in your ears and singing loudly, because it’s going to happen whether you want it to or not.)

In the run up to the Big Day, the Foxes have decided to try something a little different – both as a bit of fun and to give us a chance to nip out and buy something suitable for Great Aunt Gwendoline and that obnoxious second cousin with the dreadful taste in neckwear, halitosis and the mistaken belief that he’s God’s gift to women …

From now until the New Year, we’re putting our usual scheduled posts on hold and taking the Christmas cracker-cum-Advent calendar route: you never know what’s going to pop up or fall out until it actually happens. Heck – even WE won’t know a lot of the time … so think of it as a journey into the unknown that we’re taking together …
